Sellers are offering their cars for sale due to job losses, work from home routines and end of moratorium period on 31st August 2020— as car loan industry is huge in India and growing at a rate of 18%-20% per annum. As per the Co-founder and CEO of Car-Dekho, the market will witness more supply of used cars after moratorium period gets over by August-end 2020. The company is also planning to invest $20 million in the used car business in FY2020 to tap the opportunity by boosting its operation. Hence, increasing car sale in India would help to narrow the supply-demand gap in the used car market. Post moratorium period will boost the supply of used cars from both commercial and private sources with a nature to surrender assets due to weak financial profiles.
