Commenting on the auto industry performance, FADA President, Mr Ashish Harsharaj Kale said, "February turned positive for retail sales for most of the segment as the entire auto ecosystem, especially auto dealers, focused on liquidation of their BS4 stocks.

The overall retail sales were below expectations as the pre-buying for the BS4 stocks didn't see a major attraction. Several buyers held their purchasing decision towards the end of March, eyeing sweeter deals. The two-wheeler inventory of BS4 vehicles remains a major concern for FADA.
