Speaking on the monthly performance, Pravin Shah, chief executive, automotive division, M&M, said, “The festive season coupled with new product launches as well as moderation in interest rates has seen the auto industry post a positive growth during the last couple of months. I believe speedy implementation of GST will help and have long term impact on the competitiveness of the auto industry. At Mahindra, we have been buoyed by our new product launches such as TUV3OO as well as growth momentum of existing products like the Bolero, Scorpio and XUV5OO. Our exports have been very encouraging, showing a 28% cumulative growth fir the current fiscal. We are happy to be in a positive growth phase at the end of November 2015.”
