  1. Just a request to the author, please concentrate more on Bangladeshi automobile market rather than Indian. I think comparing with Indian automobile market does not make any sense any more. The prices of automobiles in India cannot be compared with ours only through the currency exchange rates. There are lot of reasons like localisation, etc (which I don’t think I need to tell you). These articles just make us think that they are cheap. But the cost of living and dynamics of Indian economy is completely different than ours. We lag in several indicators with Bangladesh, but we are more or less similar in market dynamics (economically). It is practically invain if you keep posting articles of how affordable automobiles are across the border. Please stop these meaningless articles.
