    Escorts bags US$40mn prestigious order
    India Infoline News Service / 14:49 , Jul 05, 2010

    Escorts has been chosen to supply 1430 units of its premium range of powerful Farmtrac tractors to Tanzania which is implementing a national “Food Sufficiency Programs” aimed at making it a Food surplus country.
    Escorts Limited, India’s leading tractor manufacturer, set a new benchmark by winning Indian tractor industry’s largest ever order for tractors. Valued at US $ 40 million (about Rs. 185 Cr) the prestigious order has been awarded to Escorts by the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania.

    Escorts has been chosen to supply 1430 units of its premium range of powerful Farmtrac tractors to Tanzania which is implementing a national “Food Sufficiency Programs” aimed at making it a Food surplus country. Against global average of 19.7 tractors per 1000 hectare of land, Tanzania is estimated to have about 2 tractors per 1000 hectare of land. The tractors are being procured by Tanzania to impart a major thrust to farm mechanization and enhance agricultural productivity.

    Rajan Nanda, Chairman, Escorts Limited said, “We strongly believe that farm mechanization holds the key to greater food security. Escorts powered the green revolution in India and we are privileged to support the national efforts to usher in the green revolution in Tanzania. With world class market mapped tractors and strong engineering capabilities, Escorts is well positioned to catalyse farm productivity in the Africa. Escorts has an ambitious immediate plan to open two offices in the African continent and set up a service and upkeep infrastructure in Africa.”

    “It is also a matter of great pride for Escorts to win the largest ever order for tractors in Indian industry. We already have over 1000 tractors in African markets. Our satisfied customers in Tanzania and the global quality of Framtrac tractors have helped Escorts win this very prestigious order,” Mr. Nanda further said.

    Escorts will commence the supply of tractors in July. Escorts will supply the tractors in SKD (semi knocked down) form and assist the Government organizations in Tanzania to assemble these tractors into CBU (completely built-up units). Escorts’ Farmtrac range comprises from 34HP to 75 HP and has powerful features that provide maximum productivity and efficiency to the farmers.

    talk about waste of tax payers money on projects that have no sense of direction. Juzi mbolea zimeibiwa ebu kwanza waseme kumekuwa na improvement gani so far under the scheme(watanzania wamefaidika vipi) ama ndio amna experiments before investing. Kutokana na mfano mmoja wamenufaisha vipi maisha ya watu au ndio matrekta yaje yaishie kuibiwa tu na kutoweka kama mbolea.

    Kilimo kwanza what next (kipi kinafuata) or what is this idea going to achieve at the end considering the ambitious scale. Five years down the line it would prove to be a waste of tax payers fund, honestly this needs to stop.

    "Escorts will supply the tractors in SKD (semi knocked down) form and assist the Government organizations in Tanzania to assemble these tractors into CBU (completely built-up units). "

    Kweli tunatumia $ 40,000,000 kununua Tractor za mtumba kutoka India.!!

    Kana kwamba hiyo haitoshi kutia shaka, kila tractor moja ya mtumba litanunuliwa na kusafirishwa mpaka Tanzania kwa gharama ya $ 27,972 !!!

    Safari yetu ni ndefu sana.

    At over US $ 27,000/= per tractor these would be the most expensive tractors ever imported into Tanzania. The same Escort tractors in India are selling at US$8,000/= to US $ 16,000/= per tractor complete with a set of implements and depending on the horse power rating. Escort tractors are in the 25 to 75 hp range. Hii deal ina wasi wasi mwingi sana - inaelekea hawa wahindi wanavuna wakishirikiana pamoja na local agents wao ambao bila shaka ni wafanya biashara wa kihindi hapa Tanzania. Kwa deal kama hizi bila shaka Kilimo kwanza itakuwa ndoto. Hii inanikumbusha Swaraj tractors zilizo agizwa toka India enzi za Mwalimu Nyerere. It is important for transparency purposes that this deal is published in the media - otherwise it is another UFISADI.

    Farm mechanisation is one of the problems. It is not the only problem but it is a problem.

    All am wondering is, as Tanzanians we are so ambitious and eager to buy what others have manufactured and at the same time we seldom sell anything. Where do we get the money? When are we going to change this mentality? Has it ever occurred to us that we could otherwise manufacture things we are importing today as we have the land, labor and market? Sometimes I get tempted to think tumelogwa hivi, we have been bewitched kwa kweli!

    Wakuu zangu KILIMO ndio UTI wa MGONGO wa Uchumi wetu tukubali tusikubali hatuwezi kuwa industrial pasipo kuzalisha wenyewe.. dunia imebadilika sana, Ila kuna matatizo makubwa ktk implementation ya zoezi hili..
    Tatizo la kwanza - Matumizi mabaya ya fedha.
    2. Dhulma ya ardhi na mali ya wananchi wasiokuwa na sauti.
    3. Kurudishwa kwa Utumwa.
    4. Kutokuwa na viwanda na masoko tayari ili kuuza mali zetu.
    5. Biashara haramu ya Ulanguzi kurudi tena na ukiukaji wa sheria ktk mauzo ya mali nje pasipo utaratibu unaotakiwa..n.k
