Bajaj Auto had stopped taking bookings for the Chetak within 48 hours of it opening on April 13 due to high demand. In its annual report for 2020-21, Bajaj Auto said it "expects to start delivering this iconic model in the course of the second quarter of FY2022".

"When booking for the Chetak was first rolled out in early 2020, it had to be stopped on account of Covid-19 related supply chain disruptions. Thereafter, your company reopened online bookings on 13th April, 2021 but had to stop just 48 hours later, owing to an overwhelming response," former Bajaj Auto Chairman Rahul Bajaj said.
