Industry, like in the past, continues to work with the government to help the country in any way it can. "Sales in the third quarter, particularly those over the holiday season, fell short of forecasts. All portions are still several years behind.

Commenting on the third-quarter sales performance of the Indian auto industry, Rajesh Menon, Director General, SIAM said that the demand of passenger vehicle segment was largely affected due to supply constraints while the two-wheeler segment was majorly impacted due to subdued demand.

he also pointed that sales of passenger vehicles were the lowest in five years, while for the two-wheelers it has been the lowest in nine years.
