IJF’s inaugural investment following the establishment of its fund in August 2023 will be in MLMML.

The India Japan Fund (IJF) has finalized a definitive agreement with Mahindra & Mahindra for an investment of Rs 400 crore in Mahindra Last Mile Mobility (MLMML). This deal values MLMML at up to Rs 6,600 crore, giving IJF an ownership stake ranging from 6.06% to 8.25%. MLMML, a subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., operates within the last-mile mobility sector, encompassing three-wheelers like Alfa, Treo, Zor, and the four-wheeler SCV Jeeto brand.

This transaction marks IJF’s initial investment since its formation in August 2023 and adds the fund to MLMML’s investor list alongside the International Finance Corporation. The India-Japan Fund, a Rs 4,900 crore entity managed by the National Investment and Infrastructure Fund Limited, counts the Japan Bank of International Cooperation (JBIC) and the Government of India as its primary investors. The fund’s strategy centres on environmental sustainability and lowering carbon emissions, fostering investments from Japanese firms in India and encouraging Indo-Japanese corporate collaboration.
