Mr. Dinesh Bashin, the head of Customer Service, Passenger Vehicle Business, Tata Motors said, "Tata Motors has always worked with a customer centric approach and providing its customers with the best post-purchase experience. With the new co-branded Tata Motors Genuine Oil range of lubricants now available, we are creating a distinct and differentiated value proposition in the market."
