    I think in India is more of man made problems and not a global slowdown perse. We are actually doing well everywhere. The only industry which is in bad shape is the automobile and that too the CV business. I attribute this to the ban on mining and hence the retaliatory effect. I understand the ports are all empty without the stocks of Iron Ore and they are contemplating whether they can offer these places to the automobile sector to park their export cars there.

Sir,
Kindly Update Three Wheeler Q3 data analysis.

I see the two wheeler industry will grow flat in 2014 – 15, where as market will see a 8 – 10% growth in passenger car and commercial vehicles may see a 12 – 15% growth in this period. Our major concerns are going to be 1) the vehicle stock in dealer and OEM end, 2) financier portfolio. Commercial vehicle will see a good jump in view of 1) revised market sentiment due to (anticipated) higher allocation in planned expenditure in new budget, 2) latest clearance on projects made by UPA II, 3) change in interest policy in view of better inflation data .
