Commercial vehicle sales were up 12 per cent at 15,131 units in June against 13,538 units in the year-ago period, the company said.

M&M President Automotive Sector Rajan Wadhera said the company’s focus has been to minimise channel stocks to reduce the transition losses on account of GST implementation.

“We are closely observing GST and strongly believe that once we tide over the initial uncertainties, GST is set to usher in a new era for the economy in general and the automotive industry in particular,” he added.
