The auto maker reported operating loss of Rs. 13 crore, whereas in the same period last year it earned profit of up to Rs. 27 crore. With the announcement of its quarterly results, the share of the company show declining interest from investors.

The company had expansion plans to extend the dealership networks by adding 50 more dealerships. With slipping market share and profit of auto makers, Force Motors too is struggling to cope with tough market conditions.
