India’s license plate industry is growing, but is not growing at the same pace as its domestic industry.
The country has seen an explosion in the number of cars and other vehicles registered, which is increasing the demand for licenses and plates.
In 2017, India’s gross domestic product grew by 5.4% to $10.47 trillion.
The auto industry in India grew by 18.6% to 6.3% in the same year.
But this growth was not matched by an increase in the demand of vehicles and plates, which the Indian government wants to see.
The government has said it will impose tariffs on imported cars to boost the country’s export revenues.
The Indian government has announced a total of 10,000 new licences in the last two years, according to the ministry of road transport and highways.
The government has also been promoting its drive to encourage manufacturers to make India the European destination for cars.
The National Vehicle License Authority, the regulatory body in charge of issuing and registering car plates, has also set a target of increasing sales to 5 million cars by 2022.
