The 40-50 HP segment accounts for around 50 percent of sales in the domestic tractor industry. Swaraj manufactures tractors from its two manufacturing plants in Mohali, Punjab. “A third plant is also under construction,” Chavan said. It is likely to arrive by the third quarter of this year. We will commission it in the fourth quarter. The plant is in the final stages of implementation.” The new tractor range is priced at Rs 6.9 lakh for the base variant (42 HP) and goes up to Rs 9.95 lakh for the 50 HP top-end model.
