So a total of 95 auto components and auto OEM companies are going to invest around Rs 75,000 crore,” said Goel.
He further said that the Indian auto industry is very strong with regard to volumes. “These investments will make our industry produce with at least 50 percent of local value addition, which will help them achieve volume,” Goel said.
