Anant J. Talaulicar, Chairman & Managing Director, Cummins India Limited, said, 
“Our domestic growth story continues based on momentum from the Government’s increased investments in infrastructure for the economy.  The company remains optimistic about its growth prospects in the domestic market.  Exports markets continue to disappoint based on the global economic scenario.  In particular, the demand for our low kilowatt generators has continued to soften based on difficulties that some of the economies are experiencing in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Asia.  Our product mix was unfavorable in the quarter which has had an adverse impact on profitability.  However, Cummins India remains well positioned to maximize emerging opportunities based on its ability to leverage Cummins Inc. technology and tailor it for the Indian market, its strong OEM and supplier partnerships, best in class service support and a diverse, stable leadership team.”
