V-Link, a leading fleet management company, launched 'Meru', a world-class metered call taxi service in Mumbai in association with India Value Fund Advisors, a premier Private Equity Firm in April 2007.

Constantly maintaining its customer centric focus, Meru has expanded its advanced booking service for customers in Andheri, Santacruz, Vile Parle, Goregaon, Malad, Vikhroli, Chembur, Powai, Vashi and other nearby areas in June 2007, in addition to its existing network from South Mumbai to Bandra and Kurla. Meru has now extended its services further, within BMC limits to areas such as Mulund, Mankhurd and Dahisar in order to reach a wider base of clientele and enable them to benefit of this luxury service.

Neeraj Gupta, Managing Director, V-Link Group said, "I feel especially proud that Meru cabs are helping in upgrading the infrastructure of the city, which is badly required and providing passenger's with luxury during travelling. By extending our services, we will be able to reach a wider base of clientele in the city. Meru cabs are environment friendly, which has completely revolutionised the taxi service in the city, and has set the pace for tremendous growth for this industry in India. It is our constant endeavour to enhance the value of our passenger's interests. Adopting global benchmarks, our resolute focus is to produce unmatched performance and quality service, which has led to the expansion of our service within BMC city limits with the support of our esteemed customers and shareholders. Our business philosophy of producing technologically advanced and fuel-efficient taxis, customised to the customers' needs, and the outstanding support of our partner, India Value Fund, has helped greatly in our success"

He added, "We are dedicated towards catering to the needs of our passengers in every possible way. In such a vast city like Mumbai, transportation will always pose a problem. By expanding our services to these additional areas, we will ensure that customers who avail of our services from these areas will have a pleasant journey with the shortest possible wait-period"

V-Link will increase to 1,000 taxis by year-end and plans to manage a fleet of at least 10,000 cabs across major metros of the country in the next 3 to 5 years. V-Link currently offers an advance booking system for Meru, which allows a customer to book for a cab by dialling (022) 4422 4422 or logging onto www.merucabs.com and get a cab at their appointed location.
