FADA once again urges our Government to increase infrastructure spending including timely payment to vendors and introduce attractive incentive based scrappage policy to revive the M&HCV segment.

Near Term Outlook

With festive season now over, heavy rains in certain parts of the country leading to crop damage and pent-up demand almost negligible, demand revival now solely depends on exciting year end schemes. If the supply chain issues in PV segment is controlled, we may see continued growth in December.

FADA once again cautions 2W OEMs and Dealers to keep a check on vehicle inventory as post festivals, demand may remain subdued.
