Commenting on the performance, JK Tyre & Industries Chairman and Managing Director Raghupati Singhania said,"JK Tyre turned out an excellent performance in Q3 - in terms of sales and profitability. This was largely driven by the increased demand for passenger, commercial vehicle as well as farm tyres."
