  1. HI!

    Is this slash in prices expected from other automotive firms as well?Are these steps being taken as there has been a decline in sales for some of the firms in the last quarter?

    Hey Sonika,

    Yes, other OEMs are also going to slash the prices, and as is much flashed on the tele, small cars are going to experience a cut upto about 14-16K while the cut is as high as 45K for premium cars. This measure is being taken by the auto-makers after the Government’s initiative of reducing the ad-valorem cenvat rates and also the pumping of INR 35,000Cr into the market.
