The administration has decided to start the process with the 4 selected agencies before moving ahead with all automobile companies. There are 52 automobile agencies till date who are dealing in different cars and two wheelers manufacturers in Chandigarh. These 52 agencies in Chandigarh are spread throughout, starting from the Phases I and II and moving ahead to Industrial area.
