With the section of GST (Good and Services Taxes), there has been a decrease in the rates of new cars. The smaller cars haven’t seen a noteworthy decrease in its valuing, however, SUVs, extravagance autos have unquestionably profit by it. As this isn’t profiting the generally smaller cars purchaser much, there is a possibility of it generally an expansion.
The SUVs and luxury cars will see an expansion in its tax from 15% to 25%. The law was passed on seventh August and the usage has just been finished. On the off chance that you are looking at getting yourself an all new SUV or an luxury car? At that point this is the best time as this has just got an endorsement.
Not to stress over the reality this lead won’t come into picture at any point in the near future as there is a timetable after which it will get into application. The general view is to have higher tax for luxury and higher end vehicles. This can increment as the estimating has descended for a fragment that isn’t about an incentive for cash. Autos are as of now in the most noteworthy GST rate of 28%.
The GST Council has officially set the most extreme require comprehensive of cess at 40%, which is the most noteworthy. The small petroleum cars under 4 meters long and 1.2-liter oil motor have a 1% cess, while little diesel autos under 1.5-liter have 3%. The fair size autos and SUV right now have an assessment of 15%, which is more than the littler autos. There were numerous auto purchasers who chose to sit tight for some time as GST had seen a drop in its cost. Every one of the autos saw a lessening in charges aside from the mixture ones.

The government has seen a decrease in the income and vehicle industry is one of the significant wellsprings of gaining for the administration today. Hence, there hasn’t been an expansion in the duties for reasonable autos. This implies numerous new autos will see an expansion in its valuing. Along these lines, the duty will go up to 51.5% including the tax. This makes it the most costly item in the market. What is amazing is the manner by which rapidly has the legislature actualized this change, by testing it only for a month.
Rahil Ansari, Head of Audi India expressed, “The taxes on this industry are already very high and this increase in cess rate will be detrimental to the luxury car industry as we will be forced to hike our prices to levels higher than a pre-GST period. This is bound to adversely impact sales by possibly a double-digit reduction and will consequently reduce revenues for the company, dealers and perhaps also tax revenues for the Government. While the overall impact will still have to be evaluated in some time, we will be forced to redraw our plans for the Indian market based on future projections in this scenario.
The luxury car industry in India, while small in volumes, still contributes over 10 percent in value. While the segment definitely needs more positive initiatives from the Government to be able to deliver a bigger contribution to the Indian economy, this scenario is clearly a setback.”
