Just over a week ago, MSIL was fined Rs. 200 crore by the competition regulator for a policy under which the brand penalised its dealers and employees for providing additional discounts. The Indo-Japanese manufacturer will introduce the second generation Celerio in the coming months in India while some of the other existing models including Baleno and XL6 are due a mid-life upgrade.
