Commenting on the performance, Hemant Sikka, President - Farm Equipment Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra said, "We have sold 31,619 tractors in the domestic market during November 2020, a growth of 55 per cent over last year. Demand continues to be robust fuelled by an excellent festive season with retails being strong during Dhanteras and Diwali. Rural sentiments remain positive on account of higher Kharif output and Rabi sowing. Procurement operations for kharif are on full swing which would keep the rural cash flows healthy. Government's focus on rural growth continues and outlay under Atmanirbhar Bharat 3.0 will provide further fillip to the industry. In the exports market, we have sold 1,107 tractors, a growth of 79 per cent over last year."
