Thoughts About The Drop In Sales Figures For MSIL During June 2019

Wow! That is a steep drop in sales figures. The industry was expecting things to get better after the elections in the country, but no such thing has happened. We assume that sales and profitability will be hit some more because companies will have to dump excess BS-IV stock, and this may trigger a price war. We think sales will get better starting with the Diwali festivities.
