We had planned for a capacity of about 2,000 vehicles per month and are now getting ready to ramp it up to 3,000 by January. This would help us bring down the waiting period to a reasonable timeline,” commented Veejay Nakra, Chief Executive Officer, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd on this achievement.
