Bajaj Auto's MD Rajiv Bajaj told CNBC-TV18 that the company had not offered any incentives to dealers or any discounts to customers last month. The decline in two-wheeler stocks post the Dassera-Diwali festivals had helped the company boost inventories, he said. Three-wheeler sales were aided by fresh release of auto permits by various states, he added.

Bajaj, however, remains cautious of the two-wheeler industry in 2013.

So far this financial year (Apr-Dec), the company has sold 32.56 lakh units down 2 percent year-on-year. Motorcycle sales are down 1 percent to 28.97 lakh and CV sales are down 9 percent to 3.59 lakh. Its exports have declined 4 percent to 11.82 lakh units.
