    HONDA to ramp up motorcycle production and triple sales in INDIA to 5 million units annually.

    REUTERS - Honda Motor Co. plans to ramp up motorcycle production and triple sales in India to 5 million units annually in five years as its partnership with the Hero Group nears end, the Nikkei business daily reported on Tuesday.

    Honda decided last December to sell its stake in joint venture Hero Honda Motors Ltd to Hero Group, the paper said.

    To offset the expected decline in its local market share, Honda plans to boost production at subsidiary Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. from the current 1.55 million units a year, the business daily reported.

    The unit's second factory is to begin operating in the state of Rajasthan in the second half of 2011 and lift Honda's production capacity in India to 2.2 million units by around 2012. Plans are also afoot to build a third plant in the state of Andhra Pradesh, the Nikkei said.

    Honda's overall investment to increase production in India is estimated at 10 billion rupees, or roughly 18 billion yen, the newspaper said.

    Honda plans to begin production on a 250cc sports model in India in March. Honda also plans to open new sales locations in regional cities and rural districts, the paper added.

    not exactly from automobile industry still related to transpost sector hence posting it here instead of making new thread.

    New Delhi: State-owned Air India Monday reported a cash profit of Rs.21.66 crore for November 2010, owing to significant improvement in efficiency and better management strategies.

    The operating surplus was a record of sorts in recent times given that the carrier has been ailing with accumulated losses touching nearly Rs.14,000 crore over the last four financial years and struggling with a debt of Rs.18,000 crore.

    Air India said that November's performance was 'largely due to significant improvement in efficiency parameters, coupled by better yield management strategies and a mushrooming number of passengers showing faith in the national carrier'.

    Of the 194 flights on the Air India network during November 2010, 108 made cash profits.

    'The peak season for air travel would continue and our employees' commitment to meet the challenge is evident' said Arvind Jadhav, chairman and managing director, Air India.

    In the period April-November 2010, Air India recorded a network revenue of Rs.7,250 crore, compared to a revenue of Rs.5,911 crore during the corresponding period the previous year, a growth of 22.6 percent.

    The airline registered an overall passenger load factor of 66.3 percent during April-November 2010, up from 63.1 percent achieved in the year-ago period.

    The government last month cleared fresh equity infusion of Rs.1,200 crore but asked the airline to rationalise its wage bill, an issue which has been the bone of contention between the company's management and unions.
