Pune based automobile manufacturer Bajaj is all set to launch the RE60 quadricycle in India, once ARAI certification is through.
The Supreme court has lifted all stays by various high courts by creating a new vehicle category by the government.
Bajaj, in its annual report for 2014-15 said, "Consequent on lifting of the stay orders by the Supreme Court, ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) has restarted the stalled certification processes. The tests are completed, and report making and other administrative processes are going on."
"Thus, the product, the factory, the manpower, the processes and the vendor base are ready. Once the certification is in hand, we are ready to roll."
Bajaj Auto initially showcased the RE60 in 2012 as a small four-wheeler powered by a 200 cc petrol engine that is mounted at the rear.
Bajaj also said, "RE60 was mired in legal tangles created by vested interests filing multiple petitions in various high courts, questioning the government process in creation of this new category. In the face of stay orders, ARAI, the testing agency, kept the approval and related processes in suspended abeyance."
