    Commenting on the January data, Mr Rajesh Menon, DG, SIAM stated “Wholesale sales continue to dip in all segments barring the three-wheelers segment.”

    Mr Rajan Wadhera, President, SIAM stated “Sales of vehicles continue to be stressed due to rising cost of vehicle ownership and slower growth in GDP. We are hopeful that the recent announcements of the Government on Infrastructure and Rural Economy would support growth of vehicle sales going forward, especially in Commercial vehicle and Two-wheeler segment.   The excellent response of consumers to Auto Expo 2020, should also help to build positive consumer sentiments and improve sales in the coming months. We as SIAM are also looking forward to early announcement of an Incentive based Scrappage Policy in the context of the recent assurances of the Government”
