TML Drivelines Limited is predominantly in the business of manufacturing Axles & Transmissions for Commercial Vehicles. In the year 2000, the erstwhile Axle & Transmissions manufacturing divisions of Tata Motors, were spun off as 100% subsidiaries HVAL & HVTL respectively. The key intent of incorporation was to give specialist focus on development and supplies of Axles and Transmissions for Tata Motors, while Tata Motors concentrated on Vehicle Design, Integration & Marketing. In the year 2011-12, the Boards of the two Companies decided to amalgamate HVTL into HVAL to harness synergies and graduate the two entities as a Total Driveline Solutions Provider. HVTL was accordingly amalgamated with HVAL and HVAL was then renamed as TML Drivelines Limited in FY2011-12. The company operates as a Business to Business (B2B) entity with TML. It continues to cater to more than 90% of the Axle & Gear-box requirements in the M&HCV Range to TML by supplying to all locations of TML - Jamshedpur, Lucknow, Pune, Pantnagar & Dharwad.
