Indian auto industry is going through a pathetic phase and April has been a really tough month for the auto sector and as it's about to record zero sales for the first time in history. While some auto giants have announced relief packages for dealers and customers, Okinawa, the electric two-wheeler maker on Tuesday announced that it has hiked its dealer margins from earlier 8% to now 11% on each sale.

The company mentioned that the decision to increase the dealer margin comes in the view of the Covid-19 pandemic which has crippled the auto industry not only in India, but worldwide. It mentioned that this step will strengthen its dealer network and enable its retail partners to make slightly larger profits.
