Commenting on the launch, Sanjay Trehan, CEO, NDTV Convergence, said, “With the launch of NDTVAuto.com we continue to complement our core news offerings with value services sought by our loyal users. Also, later through SMS and WAP services, we would be able to offer such related information 24x7 across platforms.”

Tufail Khan, Vice-President - Marketing, Carwale.com, said, “This association helps our popular interactive tools reach a wider net savvy audience. We are confident that NDTV users will find the new car road tests, used car valuation tool, community reviews, blogs and articles extremely useful.”

NDTV Convergence Ltd, a subsidiary of NDTV Networks Plc, is a leading Web 2.0 company. The company develops exclusive content for cross media platforms such as Internet, mobiles, ITV and IPTV.
