Bangalore, Sept 07: By our Business Correspondent: An US multinational selling bullock carts is planning to start a unit near bangalore. Though Hyd and chennai were in the race, Bangalore won due to the fuel price situation here which makes it more attractive for the company in selling their vehicles.
A beaming CM kumaaaraaswaaamyy announced this at a press conference in the city today. He said that he was really concerned about bangaloreans and thatâ€™s why he has “fought” to get this plant here. These bullock carts will take bangalore in to the “20th” century he announced. when reminded of the mistake he pretended not to hear the question. He also said that he will continue suffering by travelling in his merc benz as he wants only the common bangaloreans to enjoy while he “suffers” in his air conditioned merc.
The bullock cart company has big plans for the city. The body will be brought in a semi-knocked down condition and the engines (read bulls) recruited locally. The co is hoping to break even by the first year itself considering the condition of roads and the price of fuel here. The co will also set up grass filling stations at major junctions where people can purchase fuel (read grass) and it has already tied up with major credit card companies for payment. Online payment option is also available.
The bullock carts will come with a standard kit and can be spruced up to a jazzy version. Two models will be released inniitially one with gears and another one having automatic transmission. CM kumarasawwaaamyyy has promised to extend all tax benefits to these vehicles and has said that all Government class 10 employees will have to use these.
The co has also entered into an agreement with an Indian firm for providing post sales service. The network will be available in Bangalore initially and then across the state. Users will be given sms on the status of their bullock carts while the servicing is going on and the first service after 100 bales of hay is free.
