  2. It is not only the Passenger Vehicle Segment but the entire Automobile Industry is passing through the testing time thanks to the Political Leadership which for sure is advancing only towards their self set Objectives and Goals totally ignoring and neglecting the National Interest. The Nation grows only when there is overall development in the Infrastructure but today every development has come to a halt as no one has the time, energy and will to focus on these core issues every one is busy in self Development.

  3. This is also related to the GDP growth of the state and directly to nation’s?.Has the primary sector grown and remained efficiently and competitive in Export market?But the white goods have not fallen much as per previous year figures? old vehicles are to be banned? Special parking facilities at Railway station also at public bus stop o increased and status improved (so a person might use methodology- pool car sharing or may buy 2 set vehicles -keep one on each side of the destination station ?Also more roads? Then buying power of the rupee has not grown robustly (as expected or compared ).Then pressure on the OEMs to build new smaller & efficient & more differently styled vehicles?
