In search of high mobility for its troops in various forms of terrain, such as snow-bound areas, marshes, creeks, beaches and deserts, the Indian Army is seeking to acquire a large number of all-terrain vehicles. In this regard, the army has issued a request for information (RFI) to manufacturers, both domestic and foreign, for high utility vehicles that should be able to carry 10 fully-armed men.
The RFI, however, does not specify the exact number of vehicles required, but asks the manufacturers to state their ability to supply them and also transfer technology for manufacturing within India.

According to officials, the Army will seek to procure both wheeled and tracked all-terrain vehicles with convertible rack and seat systems.
The vehicles should be able to operate in high-altitude areas as well.
