Under the passenger car division, the company sells small car Nano, hatchback Indica series and Indigo family of sedans.

The company, however, did not specify the model-wise break up of the price increase.

In case of utility vehicles like Safari, Aria and Sumo, the hike will be from Rs 8,000 to Rs 35,000, he said.

"Regarding the commercial vehicles, we have decided to pass on the additional burden of two per cent to consumers. We have a wide range of products in this category," the spokesperson said.
