Commenting on the sales, HMIL Senior Vice-President, Sales and Marketing Rakesh Srivastava, said: "Volumes are under pressure despite attractive consumer promotion as customer and market sentiments continue to be suppressed. The frequent price increase in the fuel price on account of depreciating rupee has further increased the challenge to grow volumes."
