Overview of the Automotive Industry

The automotive industry is one of the fastest growing industries in India. The total sale of all types of vehicles in 2013-14 was Rs. 1,84,21,538. With the sale of more vehicles there is more work in terms of repair and maintenance. Most people entering the automotive industry can expect steady work resulting from this growth of sales. The sales are further projected to grow in the next year due to new launches and falling fuel prices. Hence the demand for PDI In Charge will grow as the number of vehicles in operation increases.

The PDI In-Charge will be required whenever there is a sale of new cars. As predicted, since the sale will go up, so will the demand of PDI In-charge.
