Moving on to the key industry highlights of the quarter, global semiconductor shortage continues to drive down OEMs production. In Q3 FY2022 many OEMs have reported a decline in sales with respect to Q3 of the previous year.

Supply chain issues are gradually getting eased out while the underlying demand drivers still remain intact. Our sales have recorded a growth of 17% in the current quarter from Q3 FY2021 due to our diversified product portfolio and strong aftermarket growth. The company has also been able to post historic high sales for two successive quarters.

As per the data published by SIAM the overall industry production in Q3 of FY2022 was down by 20% from Q3 of FY2021 owing to the degrowth of both passenger vehicles and two-wheeler segment by 12% and 23% respectively whereas the production of commercial vehicles and three-wheelers remained flat.
