Commenting on the monthly sales, Mr. N.

The Innova Crysta has already received close to 20,000 booking orders within a month of its launch. We would like to thank our customers for placing their trust in our products.
However, we keenly look forward to a favorable decision on the ban of registration of diesel vehicles above 2000cc in NCR which has been affecting the legitimate interests of TKM and its dealers in NCR. We along with a couple of other industry players are the only ones affected. This has been affecting our sales over the last six months and we are hopeful that the Hon’ble Supreme Court will consider our pleadings and lift the ban,” concluded Mr. N. Raja.
