FADA President Manish Raj Singhania said that the total retail sales of vehicles in January has increased as compared to the same period last year, but it is still eight percent less than the pre-Covid i.e. January, 2020. On the business outlook, Singhania said with factory activity in China picking up again, global supply conditions for components and semiconductors are expected to improve. This will improve the supply of vehicles and reduce the waiting period. (agency)
