Would be happy if you could bring in ICV/LCV/SCV in the same type of Manufacturer and Statewise sales details from next month or from the start of second Half, which will be quite useful. Similarly, Cars and UVs too Statewise data would be very much helpful for Chief Marketing people like us. Thanks and Regards Ravi
