So his new office is in ERC pune? I do not think any other manufacturer in India have such set up like ERC. Have worked with ERC for minor modification of their 497 TC engine and visited the facility few times.

Roughly 30 years with M&M and to leave at this point in one's career...that must have been tough.

Hope the new boys give you a pretty secretary, B.D.

I think he spent 10 years in the middle at PAL, somewhere in 1984-94.

AND !! a man who after 30 years was at the zenith of his passion and delivering his best !! Its a shame M&M didn't wake up! They could have drawn so much more from BD for the current Thar and its future iterations.

i had a strong feeling about him joining Force Motors because of reviving the Gurkha.

then i thought maybe in maruti as they need some one to take of the jimny, but that was a small job considering the man himself.

now the K block news has confirmed the Tata as the destination!

i would still be buying the Thar MDI, but will wait for the NEW product from TATA, engineered by the MAN himself.

congrats sir, it was nice talking to you in the 2010 auto expo, delhi.

Whatever little I have observed ( about Him ) , this man is not going to sit back quiet . He will be restless soon & make others too .

He is quite capable to wake up a sleeping giant & then ... --well we will possibly see the history being written once more .

If He is indeed with TATA, TATA (group) has the best opportunity now,

They have one of India's most respected auto technocrat with a passion for 4X4 vehicles.

They also have a company which manufactures some of world's best 4X4s (J - Land Rover).

M&M's loss is now TATA's Gain. I wish B.D the very best .

I hope you could give a thought to reviving the sierra in a 4x4 mode with the DiCor engine.

Lot of us do know. But we will have to respect his privacy, and let him reveal it himself in time.

From the trusted sources,
He is very much with Tata Motors, Pune in the Research team, Heading one of their Department.

So, everybody pls make your wish lists ready for the next 4X4 offering from Tata's stable.

I would like a Safari, with
- 4x4
- ABC
- Options like Differential Locks, LSD, Front and Rear Guard, Winch etc.
- Larger wider tyres - 265/17 to give better GC
- Of course, AC & Heater
- Rear Wiper & Defroster
- Lowest Trim Level with none of these extra gizmos :
. ICE
. Rain Censors
. Steering mounted controls
. Cruise control

In short a 4x4 with minimum frills and maximum off road credentials. Hope Behram Dhabhar can pull this off.
