At the helm of our products is innovation and the industry’s most promising technology. When you choose our E-rickshaw battery, equipped with our patented additives, it gives you the best mileage and a longer life span. In fact, as a prominent automotive battery manufacturer in India, we were the first to launch a battery that could go 1,00,000 kilometres without a top-up. Similarly, our distinct technical expertise in VRLA makes us manufacturers of the finest battery for bike applications in India, thus giving us an edge over our competitors.
We are abreast with newly evolving technology and are even hailed as early adopters. We are soon to adopt Expanded Grid Technology which will help in highlighting Idle Start Stop Batteries while simultaneously gearing up to offer lithium-ion technology to the Indian market. Our resilient efforts have helped us become a preferred supplier to most OEMs in India.
In fact, it is deeply ingrained in our organization’s culture and is even reflected in our name. As a bike, car, and inverter battery manufacturer in India, we have a zero-tolerance policy against any untoward impact on the environment. Across our manufacturing facilities, we recycle our water before using it in fishponds on our campus. Similarly, our effluents are treated in-house to the tolerances which are significantly lower than statutory stipulations. Recycling at our manufacturing plants is also extended to the lead from used batteries. In fact, 90% of our battery components are recyclable. Rain harvesting units have been installed along with solar rooftop systems while stringent steps to reduce carbon footprints, reduce, recycle, and reuse raw materials, water and waste are being taken.
As automotive battery manufacturers in India, we understand the risks involved and thus strive to adhere to a ‘Zero Accident’ culture. We have employed strict protocol across all our plants. All employees are required to wear safety PPEs without which they cannot enter the plant. Every near miss or potential accident is recorded and investigated, and necessary action is taken to prevent any injury.
Besides this, we have an efficiently designed safety infrastructure that makes room for fire extinguishers, fire hydrants, and a water sprinkling system. We even conduct mock fire and safety drills at regular intervals. Our efforts have resulted in the National Safety Council recognizing our efforts and bestowing us with the Best Performance in Safety Award. Additionally, we have maintained a 5-star rating in safety by the British Safety Council.
Working closely with GS YUASA allows us to work alongside Japanese experts in the fields of Manufacturing, Technical and Quality. With this tutelage, we implement Japanese ways of managing factory operations and stay ahead of the competition.

Our plant is accredited with latest certifications like ISO 14001, ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and IATF. Every critical process is overlooked by a highly capable team of engineers who play a crucial role in helping us achieve our dream of zero-defect manufacturing.
With an objective to help the New English School & Jr. College in Borde Vasti, Maltha, Pune to create a conducive learning atmosphere for its staff and students, Tata Green Batteries decided to build proper toilets for them. The senior leadership members from our team were involved in the entire initiative. We installed 20 Biological-Toilets, each well-equipped with taps, flushes, wash basins, proper ventilation, and electrical illumination facilities.
15 of these toilets will be used by the teaching staff and the remaining will be for the students. The special feature of the M Biological-Toilet is that it can dispose solid human waste in an eco-friendly, economical, and hygienic manner. It has been developed from the innovative M Bio-Digester technology that employs bacterial inoculums to convert human waste into biogas and usable water.
This initiative is beneficial to the school, its students & staff, and the planet as well!

The TATA Group has always believed in giving back to society. This "giving back" doesn’t have to be monetary as long as it makes a difference.
At TGY, we always believe in making a difference. With this aim, we have adopted a girl’s orphanage named Gnyanesh Balsadan situated in Phulgaon village near Pune.
The girls from this orphanage do not have access to quality education and other basic needs. Due to the pandemic, most of their classes are being conducted online and many of the girls are deprived of attending these classes due to the absence of computers, laptops, or digital facilities. Hence, we as a team decided to provide them with laptops, school bags, shoes, and other needs, which will help them learn and keep up with their classes.
In the next phase, we plan on providing them with three more laptops and a subscription to online courses, which will help them nurture the basic skills required to pursue their career. We also visit them at regular intervals to offer them advice for their careers.
At Good Shepherd Home, every child is considered a blessing. They are provided with all the necessities of life like healthy meals, a house and quality education. Above all, they are also gifted with loving parents who take care of their physical as well as their emotional well-being.
We, at Tata Green Batteries, leave no stone unturned in supporting these kids. We visit them regularly to assess their immediate needs and take appropriate action to address them. During our June and August visit, we conducted personality development sessions, career counselling and a discussion on the job opportunities available for them.
Apart from these educational sessions, we also plan recreational activities for the children of Good Shepherd Home.
Every year, we take the children for a picnic. In 2019, we took the children and the staff members to Krushnai Water Park on the 27th of November. They enjoyed various games and competitions arranged by us at the venue.
At Good Shepherd Home, we also encourage the development of hobbies and creative expression. That is why we also conducted a fun-filled painting competition for the children on the 1st of December. On the 31st of December, they were taken through our manufacturing plant which they thoroughly enjoyed. They also indulged in various exciting activities like singing, dancing and playing games. We also provided them with biscuits, and gifts which they relished with sheer innocence.
