Any news on TUF scheme for import of new machineries?
It was supposed to be stopped from this financial year onwards. But the PM mentioned in his speech that it might be extended.

I think it is worse now. Anybody having a taxable income higher than ~ 3.4 - 3.5L will shell out more...

Default Eat Pedigree?

The highlight of the budget is the reduction of duty for pet food.

Default Nothing for the auto sector!

Mr. Jagdish Khattar's statement says it all. So much for all the speculation about excise duty reductions, etc.

The Hindu News Update Service

This year's budget is a disappointment. Oh, of course! I'll pay more tax from 2007-08. I hope the additional "cess" actually gets used for education.

I was Hoping that Tax would be reduced on the small car ( from 16 to 8 % ) . That was the reason for me to delay my decision to buy Swift VDi ...

I am loving it. Just got my retriever couple of days back.

That said, there is nothing much in the budget for the auto industry. Except for the extension by 5 years of weighted deduction on R&D spend at 150%. No excise duty on biodiesel is good for a few auto companies, Indian Railways Reliance and Vinod Khosla.

Reduction in peak import duties could help companies like Honda & Toyota who have larger import content. Import duties on plastic and steel seconds & defectives might also have a residual effect on input costs.

Default Auto firms disappointed with budget

Auto firms disappointed with budget
The industry had expected excise duty on larger passenger vehicles would be cut to 16 percent from 24 per cent and customs duty on auto parts would be cut to 5 per cent from 12.5 per cent. Something which never happened

Some response from the auto industry

"We were looking for excise duty relief on larger passenger vehicles, and wanted more on infrastructure creation," said Pawan Goenka, president of Mahindra's automotive unit.

Maruti Udyog Managing Director Jagdish Khattar expressed disappointment that auto sector has been completely ignored. "Nothing is there for the auto sector in the Budget. Presently it is a disappointment," Khattar said, but added that emphasis on agriculture and education were welcome steps.

Hero Honda managing director Pawan Munjal described the budget as populist. "The minister has certainly inflation on mind. There is nothing for auto, steel and industry as a whole but certainly focus on rural and agriculture would help in the long run," he said.

Source: :: AUTOCAR INDIA - CAR AND BIKE MAGAZINE ::
Positives from Budget 2007 pertaining to Auto Sector
  1. FM did cut the peak customs duty from 12.5% to 10%, which could mean a slight reduction in prices of some cars, especially those having a high import content.
  2. FM has upped the spending to over Rs. 10,000 crores in order to further develop the national highway network.
  3. The much anticipated Golden Quadrilateral project is also expected to be completed by 2009
All of these should have a positive impact on demand of cars in the long run

There should have been Price cut policy or Incentive Policy for those running their Vehicles on Enviorment Friendly Fuels : CNG and LPG- Exemption from Road Tax or Better Yet Some rebate on Income Tax.
The country can save big amounts if it gets the Natural Gas Pipeline in place and Launches this CNG RailEngine for Short Distance travel it will go a long way in Better and More Economical Saving for the Exchequer.
