Earlier reports said that the sales of Tata have dropped for the ninth consecutive month. The sales drop has been haunting all the car manufacturers of India, because of the surprising and the rapid economic downfall and the brisk increase in fuel prices. Amidst of all this, Tata has somehow managed to keep up a decent figure of sales and exports for this year and for the month of August. Even though the sales are not exactly in the brand’s ballpark, it is pretty respectable in an economically fragile environment.
