The two-wheeler segment too, showed a positive graph during the month with a 16.3 per cent increase in sales to 14,02,830 units from 12,06,173 units in the year ago period.

In the commercial vehicles segment however, a drop of 15.28 per cent was registered in sales at 46,986 units, when compared to 55,458 units sold in May 2013.
