Commenting on the performance, SMIPL Vice President Devashish Handa said,”As we enter the festive season in India, the good news is that the demand is back in the market.” However, he said before catering to this increased demand, the two-wheeler industry has to battle with a set of challenges brought by the pandemic. ”These challenges include longer than expected supply chain disruption and consistent rise in input cost. We are hopeful that the situation will improve soon and we shall be able to fully cater to the demand,” Handa added.
