Vehicle sales in India, one of the fastest-growing auto markets in the world, grew a record 30 percent in 2010 as the burgeoning middle class in Asia's third-largest economy spurred demand. That growth is expected to halve to 12 to 15 percent this year. REUTERS/Parivartan Sharma (INDIA - Tags: TRANSPORT BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT IMAGES OF THE DAY) - GM1E7621GLH01
