Given government focus on infrastructure activities, expected re-bound in economic activities and possible strict implementation of overloading ban, truck demand in India will likely grow at healthy rate in the next 2 years. ALL's EBITDA margin performance is expected to witness gradual improvement on account of operating leverage from volume growth, further improvement in HFL's EBITDA margin and possible reduction in discounting levels.
