Maruti used to sell 7,000 cars a month in the National Capital Region alone. Now it can't sell even one.
Only 1,250 Euro I petrol vehicles can be registered per month in the NCR.
These 1,250 cars will be registered on a first-come-first-served basis. How do you implement this over 21 registration centres in the NCR?
Delhi registration centres have stopped registering all vehicles, including two-wheelers! But other centres are continuing and may have already hit the 1,250 mark.
NCR Maruti dealers are sitting with Rs 26 crore of inventories they can't sell.
Rs 236 crore booking money is lying with Maruti.
Car makers can produce Euro-I and Euro-II engines, but oil companies will have to invest Rs 15,000 crore to produce the right fuel for these engines!
