He said the company plansto open 50 Trust Mark Exclusive stores and 200 Retail Touchpoints by march 2021 and 1,000 Retail touchpoints by March 2022.

He added that the firm is working on franchise models and the cars sold through these stores will be certified by the company and warranty will also be provided.

Jaiswal said the annual market for used cars in India stands at 40-42 lakh vehicles.

Particularly in the midst of the crisis and challenges arising out of the coronavirus pandemic, people are paying more attention to buying their own vehicle and in such a situation, there has been a good demand for used cars in the range of Rs 2-5 lakh, he said.
