Veejay Nakra, chief executive officer, Automotive Division, M&M, said, We are glad to report an overall growth of 11% in December 2021. We have seen growth in business segments including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles and international operations, owing to continued strong demand across the product portfolio. The issues around semi-conductor related parts continue to be a challenge for the industry and remains a major focus area for us.

Hemant Sikka, president - Farm Equipment Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra, said, De growth in December has been on account of a combination of factors, including high base of last year and both delayed and very heavy rainfall in some geographies.

We expect momentum to recover in the coming months on account of good progress of Kharif procurement bringing liquidity in the hands of farmers and Rabi acreage showing signs of growth over last year.
