Bajaj investigates Pakistan alliance

Bajaj is planning to sell two- and three-wheeler kits to the Saigol family of Pakistan, to be assembled in Pakistani factories for the domesic market. Three side notes:

  • The story says Bajaj is “[India’s] second-largest two-wheeler maker.” Did I miss something, I thought they were by far the largest?
  • The story adds new Indian counting vocabulary to the 2sb glossary; “lakh,” which means 100,000, not to be confused with “crore” which is 10 million.
  • The story also asserts that “Pakistan does not have any indigenous vehicle brand,” but we happen to know it’s home to the Sitara City Cart.
