"We have lowered the volume of vehicles to dealers to have lean inventory and adjusted production to ensure we do not burden them before the shift to BS 6 in April 2020," said TKM deputy Managing Director N. Raja in the statement.

During the festive month of October, the company's domestic sales declined 6 per cent annually to 11,866 units as against 12,606 units in the same month a year ago as demand spiked during the Dassehra, Danteras and Diwali festivals.

"We are correcting inventory levels to liquidate stocks by December and make a smooth transition to Bharat Standard (BS)-6," Raja added.
