BYD Auto Industry Company Ltd, the manufacturers of electric buses, had also sent clarification to the MoCTCA
in August last year confirming that 'all the buses are 100 percent BYD's electric vehicle technologies, powered by BYD and warranted by BYD Auto Industry Company Ltd'.
The MoCTCA Secretary - Yagya Prasad Gautam stated, "We have finalized the procurement plan, under which we are eying to buy eight aircraft.
As per the Immediate Governance and Economy Development Action Plan, the Premier had asked the MoCTCA to acquire 8 planes, of which 2 will serve the international operation and 6 for domestic routes for the airline, and directed the Finance Ministry to assist in this regard.
Similarly, MoCTCA has also restored the Government of China s bid for buying 6 Chinese airplanes, of which 2 are 58-seater MA-60 and four 19-seater Harbin Y-12 aircraft, for serving domestic operations.
However, he has disclosed that MoCTCA s work on the prices is still to be finished.
