At Mahindra we are happy to have achieved an overall growth of 17% during March 2016 and 6% for FY2016, despite various challenges. The last financial year was significant for us considering the number of new product launches, which were well received by our customers, leading to a positive growth both in domestic and overseas markets. Going forward we hope to see good opportunity with our wide product portfolio. Further, the likely softening of interest rates in the upcoming RBI monetary policy, will help the automotive industry to maintain its growth momentum in FY2017
