According to Prabhudas Lilladher, with volumes declining around 2 per cent YoY (up 225 per cent QoQ) coupled with growth in expected realization by around 11 per cent YoY, TVS Motors’ Q2FY21 revenue is likely to grow 8.7 per cent YoY to Rs 4,724.6 crore. The bottom line is seen growing 19.5 per cent YoY to Rs 213.9 crore.
