* Mr Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director, Bajaj Auto Limited, stated that demand is being witnessed from both the urban and rural areas, driven by an increasing preference for personal vehicles. Production at the plant and vendor levels has completely geared up, and the company has responded to almost 90-95% of demand, with some hiccups in niche areas such as high-end bikes and electric scooters. In the Exports segment, demand in Africa and South Asia has recovered to 80%, ASEAN is at 60-65%, and LATAM recovery to around 50%. The company expects retail to return to normal levels by July; however, shipments are expected to normalize over Aug-Sept as in-transit stocks are high, and recalibration to the low demand witnessed in 1QFY21 is needed.
