I guess TATA's have an eye on the cost factor, so they have to look at ways to cut cost in India. The only way they can hit Volvo is by introducing a similar speced bus at lower price.

I think the upside down "tusks" in the front will keep the bus driver from coming too close behind another bus/truck on the highway .. Thats a good safety feature

On a recent ride to Pune on the old highway, I came across a number of different Tata vehicles undergoing testing.

Saw this bus with large plastic water barrels (to simulate the load of passengers) being tested. Looked nice, and seemed to be moving at quite a pace.

Also spotted the Ace people carried version, again with the water jugs. Will post that in the appropriate thread.
