This was a difficult situation for the traders. Production limits were fixed. The industrialists could not fulfill the demand even if they wanted to. In that era, there were stories that if someone booked a scooter, the delivery was received after many years.

In conditions that made it difficult for other manufacturers to operate, Bajaj reportedly produced autocratic production and succeeded in making itself one of the largest companies in the country. From a turnover of three crores in 1965, Bajaj reached a turnover of about ten thousand crores in 2008.
