Tata companies and Uber Technologies Inc. today announced a new partnership to offer the driver partners a blend of new services on the Uber platform.

Under the new pact, owners and drivers will be able to buy cars like Indica and Indigo from Tata Motors on flexible and customised financing solutions from Tata Capital Financial Services and Tata Motors Finance.
