Nagpur is participating in the Indian Government’s initiative to improve the environment and transport systems in the country’s 100 largest cities.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, Scania will inaugurate its bus production in Narasapura in the Indian state of Karnataka in the presence of the Swedish and Indian transport ministers.
