The next six months are expected to be volatile for the auto sector on account of the shift to BS-VI emission norms. The tyre industry would have to align its production in line with this requirement, says tyre major MRF's Chairman and Managing Director, K M Mammen.  

He added that the current year is expected to be a tumultuous one for the auto sector on account of various regulatory changes, especially the transition from BS-IV to BS-VI. The uncertainty is further compounded by lower consumer sentiments resulting in inventory build-up, and all OEMs are aligning production in line with demand.
