India is currently reeling under the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic with the capital New Delhi including states like Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh etc under a lockdown. Health authorities in the country have already warned about a possible third wave in the coming months.
So, coming to the question ‘is it a good time to buy a car now in India?’, the answer is Yes, there was other time truly a personal vehicle, especially a car which can ferry a family was of such importance in one’s household. While public transport services have taken all the safety measures, it still cannot be safer than travelling in one’s own vehicle.
With that said travel is largely permitted for essential and emergency purposes only. Most public transport services like buses, trains, metros including auto rickshaw & taxis services are not operational (some of the states permit taxi & autos for emergency travel) – All You Need to Know on Travel, Driving, E-passes, and More.
The biggest issue faced by millions across the country is that of transport. In these turbulent times, more and more people are turning to the comfort and safety of their own private vehicles to commute. Foregoing public transportation seems to be a wise choice as it not only helps maintain social distancing, it also prevents exposure to infected surfaces.
