"The complete lockdown of the country on account of Covid-19 has effectively wiped out 40 days, of which 32 days have been in 2020-21. Now, with the partial ease on lockdown, our manufacturing facilities at Chakan, Waluj and Pantnagar have opened, but are not working at a full pace," Bajaj Auto said.
In near future, the company expects to continue to witness the impact of this lockdown, it added.
