While a few automobile dealers fear the fall of sales on Dussehra, another section estimates that the sales will meet the last year’s figure.
Usually Dussehra is a lucrative season for automobile dealers, this year they are finding it difficult to match the sales of previous year.
The monthly sales in Gujarat stood at an average of about 22000 vehicles in 2018 which slipped down to 16000 vehicles this year, said source. With huge discounts the number are going to match this year, said another source.
People in industry believes that this is second consecutive year when sales of vehicle didn’t rise during the festive season. Also it is assumed by the dealers that this time it is more difficult to achieve targets then the preceding years.
