    2. This is not a TATA or a Mercedes Benz. This is a TATA Benz. Made in India through a joint venture between TATA and Mercedes before TATA started their own productions as TATA. Body built in Sri Lanka.

    3. Further on this. In 1954 TATA (then TELCO) started a joint venture with Daimler Benz and they started with manufacturing lorries which has a German made engine. Later they entered bus manufacturing business and in 1960's CTB started purchasing these TATA Benz buses, instead of all European fleet. The single door (C D and E types) bearing 23 Sri 3000 and 4000 series are not EP322, EP322 came few years earlier. The bodies of these TATA BENZ's were built in Sri Lanka. However, the joint venture terminated in 1969 and TATA started making their own engines and buses. As Uthpala said, these came in early 1970's numbering 23 sri 5000 series and above.

    1. TATA came after 1969 is a whole Indian made.
      TATA benz is a bus between 1954 and 1969 TALCO - BENZ joint venture It had an indian Chassis with German engine.
      23 sri 2113 is a number before 1969. Then it is a TATA Benz..
      All Indian TATA started from 23 SRI 5000 series
      This is a TATA BENZ (not a TATA) carrying a CTB body
