Vehicle sales in C’garh up despite Covid

Wednesday, 28 October 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

nDespite the Covid-19     pandemic, compared to the Navratri period last year, Chhattisgarh witnessed a tremendous hike in the sale of vehicles in both urban and rural areas this year.

While in 2019 as many as 417 agriculture tractors were sold, the number has reached 679 this year. Likewise, 28 commercial tractors were sold last year; this year 35 have been sold.

This data reflects the prosperity in rural areas and the self-confidence of farmers, an official statement said on Tuesday.

Similarly, sale of cars      has also increased this        year. Last year, 2,426 cars were sold  during Navratri. This year, 2,795 cars have been sold.

Only one harvester was sold during Navratri last year whereas this year 24 people purchased harvesters.

After the corona crisis, Chhattisgarh's economy is improving at a faster pace. The government's efforts to put money in farmer's pockets can be considered one of the reasons behind this.

The official statement said this is the result of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel's far-sighted decisions.
