Mr. Manish Raj Singhania, president of FADA, commented on the October performance and said, "The month commenced under the shadow of the inauspicious Shraddh period, persisting until the 14th.

Compared to MoM, Auto Retails flourished, achieving a 13% increase, with contributions from all categories. Two-wheelers, three-wheelers, passenger vehicles, tractors, and commercial vehicles expanded by 15%, 2%, 7%, 15%, and 10%, respectively, underscoring the sector's robust growth momentum.”
“Navratri 2023 marked a milestone, with retail sales soaring by 18% year-over-year, surpassing the figures of Navratri 2017. Except for tractors, which saw an 8% decline, all categories exhibited commendable growth. Two-wheelers, three-wheelers, commercial vehicles, and passenger vehicles experienced increases of 22%, 43%, 9%, and 7%, respectively," he added.
