New Delhi, 13thMarch’19.

The Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (F A D A) today released the Monthly Vehicle Registration Data for the month of Februry’19.

Commenting on the February numbers, F A D A President, Mr Ashish Harsharaj Kale said, After a month of spike in PV sales in January which was largely due to year end stock clearance getting extended andFew New Launches which generated some excitement, the Industry is once again witnessing downward trend as February turned out to be one of the slowest month for Auto Retailsduring this financial year.IndianAuto Sales are experiencing a Prolonged Slowdown as its already seen 6 months of Slowing Sales and growth reversaland Positive triggers in the near term appear Few.

Starting with the Huge hike in Insurance costs in September, we have seen a lot of negative factors come together in the past few months, leading to major postponement in purchase decisions and overall weakening ofConsumer sentiment.

Auto Dealers across the length and breadth of the Country are in a High stock Situation across all Categories andInventory levels of Passenger Vehicles and Commercial Vehicles, whichhad seen partial correctionin the past 2 monthsare now back to the unsustainable levels seen in November 2018.

FADA has been highlighting the High Level of Inventory amongst the 2W Dealers and would like to Express Serious Concern that it has now reached Alarming Proportions and in some geographies hasbreached the unheard level of 100 days of stock as per todays retail situation.”

Commenting Further FADA President said, “FADA believes, as does the entire Auto Industry that the dip in demand is temporary and India will continue to be amongst the Fastest Growing Auto Markets in the World. Having said that, navigating smoothly out of the current slowdown is the need and the entire Auto ecosystem, includingdealers, will have to and already are in a cost regulation mode, till the Industry returns to Vibrancy.”

Already facing a substantial increase in operational costs in recent times due to various factors as well as increased working capital needs and that too in a Tight Liquidity Environment, Prolonged maintenance of such High Inventory and its additional costs is unsustainable and with demand continuing to be a challenge,Dealers would be urgently looking to reduce their inventory in the months of March and April

Given the Current Environment FADA urges Our OEMs to take a realistic stock of the Current Retail Situation and Recalibrate their production to regulate Dealer Invoicing in these 2 months to facilitate return to Stock Normalcy for Dealerships to maintain a sustainable business environment till the industry again hits the High Growth Trajectory.
