“Demand continues to be robust, fuelled by an excellent festival season with retail being strong during Dhanteras and Diwali. Rural sentiments remain positive on account of higher kharif output and rabi sowing. Procurement operations for kharif are in full swing, which would keep the rural cash flows healthy. The government’s focus on rural growth continues and outlay under Atmanirbhar Bharat 3.0 will provide further fillip to the industry,” said Hemant Sikka, President - Farm Equipment Sector, Mahindra.
