The Name of the Company was changed from Atul Auto (Jamnagar) Pvt. Ltd. to Atul Auto Pvt. Ltd. August 12, 1994.

For more than two decades, ATUL GROUP is renowned as leading manufacturer of three-wheeled commercial vehicles in the state of Gujarat. From common people’s favorite vehicle CHHAKADA to today’s SHAKTI Atul Group had come a long way.
Back in the 1970’s, when transportation was a crucial problem especially in rural areas, Jagjivanbhai Karsanbhai Chandra decided to blaze a new trail. He was thinking of an affordable mode of transportation which can benefit rural folks of Saurashtra. The road conditions were not good but the need for transportation was increasing day in and day out. After thorough research and planning, he came up with a vehicle which was skillfully engineered from a motorcycle. And this is how the first 'chhakada' was developed which later became a way of life for the people of Saurashtra. The improvements in technologies were done from time to time to make it a sturdy and comfortable vehicle. The company will set up a second plant in the next two years. Currently Atul Auto dishes out 16 models of its vehicles from its only factory in Rajkot which produces 24000 units per year.
The company has already obtained CMVR and Roadworthiness Certificates for the existing range of products viz. Chassis for goods carriage/ 6-passenger Auto Rickshaw with steering wheel and Pick Up.
