New Delhi: Commercial vehicle maker Ashok Leyland on Tuesday said it will increase prices of its entire product portfolio by a minimum of 2 per cent from next month to partially offset the impact of rising input costs.

The company would be increasing prices of its entire range of vehicles by a minimum of 2 per cent, the Hinduja group flagship firm said in a statement.

 

"This increase in price is owing to rising input costs and implementation of AIS 140 regulation. The proposed price increase will be effective April 1, 2018," it added.

Auto makers are required to install a tracking device and emergency buttons in new and existing public service vehicles from April 1, 2018 under the AIS 140 regulation.
