Tata heavy duty trucks employ Cummins engines (sourced from Tata-Cummins and Cummins India). They are the world leaders in Heavy duty diesel engine technology. This is common practice. Some of their engines in LCVs, however, are developed in-house, probably derived from old Mercedes designs.
Neptune engines are homegrown, developed with assistance from AVL.
