  1. MSTC is not consistent with profits, that’s why only 10% for small investors. But things will be better in future as MSTC is in the growing e-commerce field. The car shredding joint venture with Mahindra is also in sunrise industry.

  2. e-commerce business has grown at >40% yoy on that basis this is available at ~0.01x GMV!!!
    If analyst view that provisions are for prior periods and there will be limited provisions going forward are true, this is available at less than 10 time historical earnings!!!
