Hindustan Motors inks alliance with UBI

Hindustan Motors Ltd. (HM) signed a deal with United Bank of India (UBI), country's leading nationalised bank with its headquarters in Kolkata, in a bid to provide easy and trouble-free financing facilities to its customers.

The tie-up entails collateral-free loan up to Rs. 10 lakh and
other preferential services exclusively for HM customers from UBI. Buyers of HM products will be able to avail of retail finance support with just 10 per cent buyer margin payment from 1,690 branches of the bank spread across the country.

Although the alliance will benefit HM customers countrywide, the move is expected to be of immediate assistance to Kolkata golden yellow taxi business segment.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by HM's Uttarpara unit Financial Controller, Dibyendu Chatterjee, and UBI's General Manager, Debashish Mukherjee. Also present on the occasion were HM's Managing Director & CEO, Uttam Bose, UBI's CMD, Bhaskar Sen, UBI's Executive Directors Deepak Narang and Sanjay Arya, HM's COO & SBU Head (Uttarpara & Pithampur), Ramesh Vishwakarma, and senior functionaries of both the organisations. A few HM dealers also attended the function.

"The retail financing tie-up with United Bank of India is yet another evidence of HM's customer-centric approach to business. This association will help us reach out to a wider customer base with speedier, smoother and competitive finance options provided by UBI. Belonging to the elite group of oldest business institutions headquartered in Kolkata, HM and UBI, in a way, share a common lineage. We strongly feel that the deal will be mutually beneficial and help us scale new heights by leveraging each other's strengths," said Uttam Bose.

The CMD of United Bank of India, Bhaskar Sen, commented, "Our bank's ties with Hindustan Motors date back to 1968. We have been together in both good and bad times. I expect this MoU to further strengthen our relationship. I look forward to more such opportunities to engage with HM. That will help both the organisations."

UBI officers have already started processing finance applications by customers at Hindustan Motors' dealerships.
