    Commenting on the August 2021 sales data, Mr Rajesh Menon, Director General, SIAM said "Indian Automobile Industry is reeling under pressure due to supply chain challenges. The global semi-conductor shortage continues and now it is having an acute impact on output across the auto industry. In addition, high commodity prices are increasing the cost of production. Against such strong headwinds, SIAM members are working hard to meet customers’ demand and expectations, while ensuring safety of its people across the value chain.


    Looking at the cumulative sales from April to August 2021, Passenger Vehicle segment is still below the level of 2016-17, Two-wheeler segment is still lower than the level of 2011-12, and Three-wheeler segment is behind by many years.
