Now, Mahindra wants to further explore the market of the Northern part of the country by opening outlets in the state of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. Elaborating further on the move, Tarun Nagar, Vice-President, Retail Business, Mahindra Group stated that company has 106 outlets (in North) at present and it will be having 200 plus outlets by the end of this fiscal in Punjab, Haryana, J&K and Himachal Pradesh.
