The rising conflux of technologies in the automobile industry provides a platform for various stakeholders to offer a solution-based operating model

Advancement of purchases owing to BS-VI norms will partially be balanced by the liquidation of BS-IV inventory in fiscal 2020; Dealers rising fiscal 2020 at elevated levels of inventory are expected to reach lower levels, as dealers liquidate BS-IV inventory and thus leading to lower wholesale offtake compared to that of retail sales.
