Customers, however, are not the only priority for Honda. Concerns of its vast network of dealers and suppliers too have reportedly been addressed to the maximum extent possible. "In order to tide over the cash flow issues for dealers that has emerged due to the nationwide lockdown, HCIL has ensured that all pending payments of dealers were cleared with March," the company has stated, adding that advance payments have been released as well to help dealers with cash flow. "HCIL is also ensuring that payments of the company’s suppliers are being done on time. HCIL is continuously monitoring the situation with close communication with dealers to ensure that its dealer channel remains healthy."

Rajesh Goel, SVP & Director, Sales and Marketing, Honda Cars India, has said that customer service and a health dealer network remain top priorities. "“In these trying times, it’s our responsibility to take specific measures to mitigate stress of our customers. Service and Warranty are two of the most important factors that concern customers and we are addressing all of them during the lockdown period," he said. "Our dealers are the company’s interface with the customers and it is important that they stay healthy and viable financially. We understand that due to the lockdown and no business activity, they will face cash flow concerns and measures are being taken to address these issues."

In addition, Honda's CSR wing - Honda India Foundation - has pledged 11 crore to central and state governments for relief and prevention efforts.
