Special leasing finance from Amana Bank for TATA vehicles

Amana Bank recently tied up with one of Sri Lanka’s pioneers in the automobile industry, Diesel & Motor Engineering PLC (DIMO), to provide special leasing finance for all TATA range of commercial vehicles, including the popular DIMO Batta and Batti vehicles.

This strategic alliance offers any individual or business entity interested in TATA commercial vehicles a special monthly leasing rental of Rs 2,554 (inclusive of VAT) for five years on a lease finance of Rs 100,000.
