Gandhinagar, Sep 11 (IANS) Tractor maker Escorts Agri Machinery Group (EAMG) Thursday delivered 150 tractors to Gujarat Urban Development Corp under the Nirmal Gujarat scheme, a programme initiated by the state government for solid waste management. The company has an agreement with the government to sell 448 Powertrac-455 brand of Escorts tractors for the scheme.
At a ceremony here, the keys of tractors were handed over to municipal corporations by Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
