The Indian Automotive sector presents an attractive opportunity as domestic demand and auto exports have been drivers of growth.

The SBI Automotive Opportunities Fund is a wonderful opportunity for investors who would like to benefit from the growth of the entire automotive ecosystem as this sector is poised to take India to new places.”
