Speaking about the demographic of sales, Pawan Munjal said, “A major part of the market demand is emanating from the rural and semi-urban markets, which have been helped to a large extent by the various stimulus packages rolled out by the government. With that, a combination of multiple factors like the forecast of a normal monsoon, a bumper Rabi crop and the upcoming festive season are expected to keep the momentum going over the next few months,”

The company has also stated that it has increased production in all eight of its manufacturing facilities, six of which are domestic while two are international. The company has also reopened a majority of its dealerships throughout the country, with strict health and safety precautions in place. With most of its supply-chain operation, its no wonder that the company has reported such strong figures.
