Tata Motors Standalone Financial Results for the Quarter and Nine months ended December 31, 2014

In the MHICV segment, positive economic sentiment, firm freight rates and improved freight availability, lower fuel prices and improved profitability of truck operators led to replacement demand which supported the Company sales growth in this segment of 42.9% Y-o-Y in Q3 FY 2014-15.
