The volumes in the premium segment have declined by 9.23% in FY 15. The company has made efforts to improve the style quotient by modifying the headlamp with twin LED pilot lamps and winkers and has provided a new digital analog console which improves the instrument cluster visibility.

The Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) had banned the production, processing, import, distribution and sale of the 'Maggi' noodles in the country. The ban was imposed as excessive level of lead in the product. Nestle is trading up by 0.2%.
