This is getting reflected in recent spike in auto sales numbers. Second thing is Indian auto company's focus on EV segment. This is attracting attention of the foreign investor as M&M and Tata Motors have received FII investment for their EV segment."

The former Deputy Vice President of the HDFC Bank went on to add that current geopolitical setup is making a conducive milieu for Indian auto sector.

So, in such condition, India being a developing economy India suits to such investors as it is providing a big market with more favourable business environment because India enjoys healthy diplomatic and trade relations with the global community.
