Default ARJUN Ace look a like tempo

Hi Guys,

Last week I spotted "Arjun" mini tempo much like Ace by TATA. So far so good, now the weird thing I noticed is, it has a sticker on the winshield saying "Not for Use, For Disposal" and with trademark of "TATA motors". I did not get the connection specially after realizing it still has RTO registration number on it.. Is "ARJUN" a brand owned by TATA?? Has "Ace" inspired by this tempo? I dont know how to post the pic.. if anybody can help, I can post it on the thread..

In the 2nd image, there is a "sticker" on the windshield which has specified it as "For disposal".. This sticker has "Tata motors" logo and some notice on it...

I have seen this same vehicle twice at the same place. I am from Pune and this tempo is parked on the "paud road" area where I take Volvo to Mumbai. It has "Pune - Pimpari Chinchwad" registration. This RTO registration area has TATA motors plant situated. I will try and grab more pictures of this tempo soon.. The weird thing is "It has written : For disposal" on the windshield with TATA motors logo. It seems TATA must be using this vehicle to get some ideas out of it..

Its very likely that the Tata's have that vehicle to check out the competition, they strip them down and analyse the vehicles after testing. I saw many competing manufaturer's products in the plant during my last visit there.
