The TAFE Group – Tractors and Farm Equipment Limited, manufacturer of Eicher and Massey Ferguson tractors has donated Rs. 2 Crores to the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister’s Relief Fund to support the MP Government’s fight against COVID-19.

Since the lockdown, various manufacturing facilities of the TAFE Group have been involved in distribution of food, medical supplies and personal protection equipment to law enforcement officers, sanitation workers, local poor and migrant workers around its area of operations. The effect of the Coronavirus outbreak during the Rabi season is likely to have an adverse impact on the livelihood of small and marginal farmers, and it is with a view to assist them in overcoming this distress that TAFE has also initiated a unique free tractor rental scheme in select states.
