India auto sales fall in November as consumers curb spending

Industry group calls for tax reductions to spur demand

MUMBAI (NewsRise) -- Passenger vehicle sales in India declined in November after a blip in the previous month, prompting the nation's main auto industry group to call for tax cuts to spur demand for cars and motorcycles.

Sales of passenger vehicles fell 0.8% to 263,773 units last month, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers, or SIAM, said in a statement on Tuesday. Sales had risen 0.3% in October on the back of festival demand.
