That said, the company is yet to open all its dealerships and is still functioning partially as far as sales operations are concerned. Its showrooms opened in accordance with government's guidelines in a phased manner across different cities. The remaining showrooms would open this month if they are not in containment zones or if not specifically restricted by any local guidelines. Sales have also been impacted as company can't allow many customers at the same time in its dealerships in a bid to avoid gatherings and maintain social distancing. Moreover, even people are avoiding to step out in these times, resulting into delays in their purchasing.
