MTEA: The Plot Thickens

Evolution is the ultimate reality, and excellence its currency. Mahindra Transport Excellence Awards, our initiative to capture the excellence and evolution of the transport eco-system crossed a major milestone on 5th and 6th of December 2014, with the successful conduct of the Expert Jury round. <Click to read more about the selection process>

MTEA, now in its 4th Edition has consistently helped the transport eco-system to evolve and be recognised. The belief of the stakeholders in this initiative has solidified in the past years, and this has been ratified by the 20% increase in the entries collected. The initial conversation with the jury indicates an upsurge in the quality of entries, which is motivating.

The Expert jury, which was held on the 5th and 6th of December 2014, evaluated the entries sieved out after an initial scan. 27 jury members <click here for expert jury>, who are authorities from different walks of the transport business, interacted with 73 nominees. The nominees went through extensive reviews as their case studies were evaluated by the jury.

The shortlisted nominees would be put up for the final round of evaluation by the GRAND JURY, which will be held in Jan 2015. Meanwhile, the Expert Jury for Dhaba, Mechanic, Spares Retailers and Financiers category was held on the 12th and 13th Dec 2014, shortlisting the entries for the Grand jury.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Rajan Wadhera emphasized Mahindra’s intent and the philosophy behind MTEA, “The Awards initiative is an effort by Mahindra to help the industry stakeholders view this industry in a new light in the Transport Ecosystem that has not received enough attention. Embracing all who contribute to the ecosystem, is the foundation of these awards. Be it the next generation entrepreneur who needs that encouragement through recognition to take on his Papa Ka Business to that an unsung Driver, who seeks little dignity and respect! These awards have only got bigger and better year on year.”

The plot just got exciting. Watch this space for more.

No one likes hand-me downs. Talk to a money-wise buyer and he will explain the financial advantages of a price-depreciated, but good quality product. Vehicles fall under this category. Their value depreciates with time, but a well maintained or refurbished vehicle can provide great value to its owner. However buying used vehicles is not always a pleasurable experience. The credibility of the source/mediator, the safety & efficiency of the vehicle comes into question. It is imperative to have someone trustworthy filter these elements out.

So you may ask why the long introduction? We at Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. bring you MTrust, the most trust worthy way to buy used Mahindra & Mahindra Trucks. At MTrust, we assure you everything that Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. stands for, good quality and great service peppered with Trust and assurance to Outperform.  

Each vehicle goes through 166 tough health checks and is certified for use by qualified engineers. The worn out parts are refurbished by genuine Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. spares to ensure that the Truck outperforms from the word go. The retouched truck is then given a 1/2/3 Star Rating, depending on its performance and sent in for resale, where MTrust also provides refinancing options for prospective buyers.

So now that we have ensured that the vehicle is good as new, we also ensure that the transaction and service experience is excellent. The transaction is hassle free and transparent, with minimum glitches during the otherwise much horrid stage of ‘paper transfers’. The buyer also ends up with a 1 year warranty* & 3 free services*. The offer is topped with an optional AMC and on-road assistance for the customer’s convenience.
