Bajaj Auto said on Monday that it commenced the reopening of dealerships and service centres in various parts of the country from May 4.

This re-commencement of facilities is as per the various guidelines by the Central and State government with the dealership taking permission from the respective local authorities, the company said in a statement.

“India is gearing up for the new normal post the Covid-19 pandemic and so are we at Bajaj Auto. The opening of workshops and dealerships is another step towards making a fresh start.

All the facilities have been sanitized prior to the restart of business, the company said.
