    I would not use "since" with "till now". The word "since" already includes the meaning of "up to the present".

    Thanks for answering. What about "since" with "till"? I think it's incorrect too. Yes?

    Yes. You can say "Since 1969 the production of cars has increased each year" or "From 1969 till now the production of cars has increased each year".
