Maruti Suzuki India has released the monthly sales numbers for March 2021, witnessing a nearly 2 per cent increase in Month-on-Month sales. Last month, the company sold 155,417 vehicles in the domestic market, compared to 152,983 units sold in February 2021. At the same time, the company has witnessed a 97 per cent increase in Year-on-Year sales compared to 79,080 units sold in March 2020. However, we have to consider the fact that it was in March 2020 that the nation went into a lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, affecting vehicle sales across the industry. So this growth is nothing but an anomaly. In those regards, Maruti says that domestic sales in March 2021 have only recovered to March 2019 levels, when the company sold 147,613 units in the corresponding month.
