Hyderabad-based ETO Motors partners with AWPO
The primary objective of this collaboration is to empower ex-servicemen by equipping them with the means to earn a sustainable livelihood post-retirement.
Electric mobility solution provider, ETO Motors has joined forces with the Army Welfare Placement Organisation (AWPO). Their strategic partnership aims to empower ex-servicemen, war widows, and widow wards by offering sustainable livelihood opportunities. This Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signifies the commitment of both organisations to support the aspirations and well-being of our esteemed veterans.
Hyderabad- based ETO Motors, known for its expertise in designing, developing, manufacturing, and selling electric vehicles, aims to go beyond conventional employment options for ex-servicemen, who often find themselves limited to security guard and gun man roles. The primary objective of this collaboration is to empower ex-servicemen by equipping them with the means to earn a sustainable livelihood post-retirement.
Under this MoU, AWPO will play a crucial role in identifying, shortlisting, and onboarding ex-servicemen who are interested in either purchasing ETO's electric vehicles or seeking employment opportunities within the company. AWPO will ensure that the selected associates meet ETO's requirements and have successfully cleared the internal selection processes.
For those ex-servicemen who choose to become micro-entrepreneurs, AWPO will provide profiles of associates who wish to buy ETO's electric vehicles. ETO Motors, in turn, will assist these associates in obtaining bank loans for vehicle purchases and ensure their smooth integration into the ETO ecosystem. Moreover, ETO will train the associates on service level agreements (SLAs) with clients, provide ongoing support until deployment is streamlined, and create avenues for earning potential.
" By providing such opportunities, we are not only fostering financial stability and independence but also igniting a spark of entrepreneurial spirit among our veterans. We believe in the potential of these exceptional individuals who have retired at the young age of 30-40, and now they prove to be invaluable assets not only to our nation but also to our organisation. Together, we are building a stronger, more inclusive tomorrow," said Pavan Chavali, Director, ETO Motors.

This collaboration will not only offer ex-servicemen the option to become vehicle or fleet owners but also open doors for multiple job opportunities in the ETO ecosystem. Job roles such as Associates, Plant Managers, Floor Supervisors, Admin-HR Executives, Hub Incharges, Technical and Operation Managers, Supervisors, Store Holders, Inventory Managers, CSOs, and ASOs will be made available at ETO's plants and various hubs across India where ETO Motors operates.
By expanding the options available to them beyond traditional roles, this collaboration will enable ex-servicemen to utilise their skills and expertise in diverse fields, fostering their personal and professional growth.
This MoU between ETO Motors and AWPO signifies a step towards building a brighter future for ex-servicemen, war widows, and widow wards. ETO Motors remains committed to its vision of creating a sustainable and inclusive ecosystem, with a focus on environmental responsibility, job creation, and empowerment.
