Over H114, passenger car sales fell by 0.5%, to 1,280,699 units, according to information on the Focus2Move website. This marks something of a recovery for a new vehicle market which declined by 9.8% across FY13/14 (April-March), to 3,134,204 units, according to figures from the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM).

Breaking down the sales figures for the April-June period (the first quarter of FY14/15), passenger car sales were up by 1.3% year-on-year (y-o-y), whereas commercial vehicle sales were down by 16.1% y-o-y. Three-wheeler sales were up by 11.64% y-o-y and two-wheeler sales were up by 13.7%, boding well for a strong performance from this sector over the full year.

Looking forward, BMI believes the stage is set for a continued recovery in new vehicle sales over the remainder of FY14/15, targeting 3.3% growth, to reach 3.24mn sales.

Moreover, the lack of a cutback in subsidies could impair the country's longer term growth trajectory, as these subsidies would hamper resource allocation, with growth in subsidised industries coming at the expense of other more productive sectors.
