MSL (Mobility Solutions Limited), a part of JCBL Group, has bagged a contract worth Rs. 100 crores with Indian railways for delivering and installing several essential components for the Vande Bharat Express. This landmark agreement cements MSL as one of the key manufacturers and suppliers of rail components to Indian railways and strengthens their several years of close collaboration and relationship.

Rishi Aggarwal, the Managing Director, JCBL Group, the parent organization of MSL, expressed his delight at the partnership, stating, “We are happy that Indian railways has displayed trust and confidence in our capabilities to manufacture and deliver exceptional components for them. As more and more Vande Bharat trains start running, there is an urgent need to deliver high-quality components for assembling them.

Innovation is the keyword we live by; this collaboration allows us to showcase that. We are all dedicated to supporting their mission of making the Vande Bharat journey as reliable and efficient as possible.”

Enhancing the overall efficiency, reliability, and safety of the prestigious Vande Bharat Express, such new trains being launched and run throughout India, connecting several cities and regions, the partnership is only likely to accelerate its overall assembling and operations. Boasting decades of experience in providing innovative mobility solutions, this opportunity can help MSL in continuing to help elevate the quality of the Indian railway system.

As part of the agreement, MSL would supply 8 pieces of the front mask or nose cone worth around Rs. 2.4 crores, 16 rakes of interior paneling with toilets worth around Rs. 76.58 crores, and 16 coaches per rake.

This MSL and Indian railway partnership primarily aims to elevate and consolidate the structural integrity and build quality of the premium Vande Bharat Express.

The MSL management has stated that their production units are moving full steam ahead, with the delivery set to be completed within the current financial year at the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Chennai. 

This agreement could also multiply the company’s scope in the nation’s mobility sector. 

As the “Make-in-India” campaign continues to gain momentum, collaborations of such nature would only inspire and encourage other players in the market.
