Maruti’s new Swift is already a run away hit and it has not even been launched in India as yet.  It is believed to have clocked over 40,000 bookings and dealers are still taking new bookings.  Thanks to the sky rocketing prices of petrol, the focus is on diesel cars and a big majority of the bookings are for the diesel engined variants.  Maruti has decided to cut the export of the diesel engine numbers so as to clear the long waiting list of Indian customers.  In the last month Maruti showed negative growth and it would like to correct that anomaly at the earliest, and hence this move.
