Double digit growth figures are again reflecting in India’s auto industry figures. Nearly every car maker has posted double digit increase in their sales figures for the month of November 2009. After a rocking festive season, sales were expected to come down a little but the latest figures reveal that Indian car industry is bullish for the rest of the fiscal year.

November 2008 had been specifically the gloomiest month for auto makers when the economic scenario including the sales figures were extremely bleak. Car sales had dipped nearly 19.38 percent last year in the same month. November 2009 comes with pleasant smiles and healthy sales momentum in the market.
