Tata Motors has announced to extend service and warranty periods till July 31.
The manufacturer has also suspended production at its manufacturing facilities, along with closing down the dealerships and service centres due to the nation-wide lockdown. The Coronavirus outbreak could also affect the deadline for the sales of BS-4 vehicles, which is now expected to be extended till May 31. With the pandemic hitting almost 700 people in the country and more than 5 lakh people across the globe, people are hardly thinking about buying a new car.
The car manufacturers from our country are supporting the government in every possible way. Mahindra has asked the government to utilize their resorts as hospitals in this crucial time. Also, the carmakers have said that their production facilities can be used to build ventilators.
