Industry needs to forget its First Love “Wholesale” and focus on Life Partner “Retail”

Industry needs to forget its First Love “Wholesale” and focus on Life Partner “Retail”

by Anuj Guglani, CEO, World Auto Forum

• The Automotive Industry’s obsession with Wholesale

• Almost like the College Crush who is hard to forget and keeps coming back ! 

• It’s time to embrace the life partner called Retail! 

 

The year was 2018. The Industry had prepared for the festive season in a similar way, pumping inventory down the dealers’ necks. We all know what happened. The inventory got stuck and had a domino effect, all through the subsequent year. It eventually led to the biggest sales drop in 20 years in 2019.

The reasons cited for low demand back then were : 1. High Insurance Cost 2. High fuel Prices 3. Rise of Shared Mobility Options.

The reasons in 2020 are far more serious and we know it.

In Short, we can’t afford to repeat the mistakes of 2018 in 2020

We need focussed thinking and absorption of consumer sentiment and Industry stakeholders’ feedback

These 5 Basic Questions can be a starting point :

Remembrance and Prayers for Ashesh Dhar, Tata Motors : A Big Loss to Industry

Remembrance and Prayers for Ashesh Dhar, Tata Motors : A Big Loss to Industry

by WAF Editorial Team 

This sad and shocking news came late last night. We lost Ashesh Dhar, Head Sales, Marketing and Customer Care EV Business at Tata Motors to cardiac arrest.

The Industry has been pouring its heart out to this horrid news.

Ashesh had been a great friend and a supportive colleague to many across his long and diverse work experience in the Automotive Industry.

He went to National High School at Srinagar and thereafter did his Mechanical Engineering from BITS Pilani.

In 1991, he joined Bajaj Auto as a GET where he served for 7 years. He then moved to TVS Motor Co and enjoyed a great stint of 10 years there.

In 2007, he joined Mahindra First Choice Wheels ( MFCW) as Vice President.

In 2011, he moved to Tata Motors where he had yet another great stint across sales, marketing, customer care. The company elevated him as head of EV Business.

He was instrumental in the creating a brand for Tata Motors in the EV Space.

WAF Gurus Live 15 : Employee Health and Safety in the Covid Era
Auto Industry has its Doors & Arms Wide Open during Covid Era

Auto Industry has its Doors & Arms Wide Open during Covid Era

by Anuj Guglani, CEO, World Auto Forum

The auto industry is one tough industry to crack. As in, enter for business or work. Most join the Industry as interns and retire as CXOs!

The Suppliers and the Dealers are also a close knit fraternity. They compete and cooperate!

Co-opetition in the Truest Sense

Whether its the technical thing or the passion or both, surely works as an insulator as well as an adhesive here!

Last 3 months + of Covid have changed a lot of things especially the “Tough to Crack” part. The industry has opened up!

Supply Chain Shift Shocks make Auto Makers look for Alternatives

The Procurement Teams at Auto Makers are a worried lot lately. Till the time there was a complete lockdown, everything was shut and it was still ok, well less worrisome!

Since the production resumed, their supplies suffered shocks almost every week. Most Auto makers follow Lean Manufacturing, Direct on Line or Just in time concepts. Now when suppliers location gets proclaimed as a Containment Zone at drop of a Hat, their supplies get stuck.

The situation exacerbates as Tier 1 Suppliers are dependent on Tier 2, Tier 3…Tier N Suppliers. Any one getting contained down the chain, the final supply to Auto makers gets affected. That vehicle booking gets cancelled at the Dealer end and thats trouble!

Resilient and Dynamic Supply Chains 

They become a need of the hour. There have to be back ups and redundancies at different locations as the Show Must Go On! This needs rethinking and fine tuning not just with the auto maker and Tier1 but across the supply chain. It goes beyond redundancies and covers automation, digitalisation, resource allocation & real time coordination and sharing.

Coming together and working as “One Industry, One Family” thereby becomes a pre requisite.

Migrant Workers Exodus: Whose fault is it Anyway?

Migrant Workers Exodus: Whose fault is it Anyway?

by Anuj Guglani , CEO , World Auto Forum

 

•The Great Migrant Exodus

•How Many Affected : 10 Million or Much More ?

•How many killed : Hundreds. Major causes : Dehydration, Starvation, Fatigue & Road Accidents

•Could it have been prevented ?

The lockdown was announced unannounced on 24 March. Overnight everything was shut. Factories, Offices, Trains, Airports, Ports. Yes thats what Lockdown is! Never seen in India’s history. So no precedence, no reference!

The Quasi Federal Structure of our country could empower the Central Govt to do it. USA took a while to go in lockdown as they are pure federal. There, each state governor needs to ratify. Here it was just one Man’s speech and its done.

So what pushed the migrant workers to leave. The straight answer is No Money, No food, no shelter. They are the first to bear the axe. They have no Permanent employment, No EPF, no nothing. Living for the day, day in and out.

Corona and Zorba the Buddha

Corona and Zorba the Buddha

by Anuj Guglani, CEO, World Auto Forum

 

Corona means different things to different folks round the world.

On one hand, you have a few defiant industrialists who complain India got the strictest and an unwanted lockdown so early on, just to be opened up and eased out with rising cases. On the other, we have Mukesh Ambani raising US$ 7 billion from Global Investors during the same Period. Period!

There are developed nations of the west emulating Anti Covid measures of the Govt of India, of which many we began more than 2 months back.

You have the upper middle & elite class go overboard on cooking, baking, partying, binge netflixing, zooming and you have migrant workers walking 200 km without food and much water and collapsing on the roadside to die, including pregnant women.

There are companies donating to PM Cares fund and the same ones also firing their own employees citing, ‘No Money’. The law of the land allows these companies to donate their CSR Fund but stops them to use the same funds for paying salaries and if done, company directors can face arrest, prosecution and ouster! Ha ha ! Do we really need Kapil Sharma to make us laugh?

IIT Delhi researchers develop test affordable test kits for COVID-19

IIT Delhi researchers develop test affordable test kits for COVID-19

PTI 

New Delhi: Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology here have developed a method to detect COVID-19 which can significantly reduce the test cost making it affordable for large sections. The National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune is in the process of validating this test on clinical samples. The “probe-free detection assay” developed by the researchers at the prestigious institute’s Kusuma School of Biological Sciences has been optimised and tested for sensitivity at the research laboratories of the Institute.

According to the team, considering the scale of the ongoing pandemic, development of indigenous kits is the need of the hour. The central government on Saturday recommended that the maximum charge for each COVID-19 test by private laboratories should not exceed Rs 4,500. All private laboratories which have NABL accreditation for real-time PCR SA for RNA virus will be allowed to conduct COVID-19 tests, according to the guidelines issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for COVID-19 testing in private laboratories, which were notified by the Health Ministry on Saturday night.

Why it’s Grossly Unfair Not to Move BS6 Deadline to 31 May 2020

Why it’s Grossly Unfair Not to Move BS6 Deadline to 31 May 2020

by Anuj Guglani, CEO WAF 

 

Stop Selling BS4 Vehicles on 31 March 2020 even if its Janta Curfew ?

2 Months Extension can save from an ‘Economical Collapse’

There won’t be any extra BS4 vehicles sold, just the vehicles which didn’t move in Feb and March due to Covid19

 

Indian Automotive Industry has seen one of the biggest slowdowns in last 20 years which has been “On” for last 2 years. As most industry pundits comment, it is a ‘Secular Slowdown’. No Vehicle type or Industry fragment has been spared. It is across Dealers, Makers and Suppliers.

WAF CHRO roundtable organized by World Auto Forum on Friday, 28 th February 2020 brought together top CHROs, HR experts and CXOs. It brought into focus, the core issues related to HR, people management, compliances and lots more.

labour reforms.

Anuj Guglani, CEO, World Auto Forum, speaking on the aims of the program explained, “the whole of last year was a real challenge for the Auto sector.

We at World Auto Forum felt the need for a dialogue on HR best practices, especially during such
turbulent times. We plan to use the insights gathered here to create Automotive HR Action plan 2020.”
