The ramp-down of BS4 vehicle production has been in line with our plan for February. However, because of the unforeseeable challenges on the parts-supply from China, our BS6 ramp-up has been affected. This has resulted in a high de-growth in our billing volume for February and our dealer inventory is, now, under 10 days. Going into March, we anticipate the challenge on parts-supply to continue for another few weeks, before we get back to normalcy. – Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales and Marketing, Automotive Division, M&M
