However, M&M reported 32.9% sequential increase in sales volume at 3,812 units (primarily E-3W portfolio) while Atul Auto posted 21% MoM decline at 1,365 units. TVS posted 11.4% MoM growth at 14,089 units. M&M's tractor sales declined 27.4% YoY to 20,437 units, with Escorts decline placed at 45.6% YoY to 6,114 units.
