The first essential thing for a discussion to start is that we know what the budget brings with it, that will start in another 7 hours and a discussion about how it to death with start as soon as news arrives.
I believe there is another thread started in mid February about this topic.

OT Ans : 95% of it.

Once Rajiv gandhi had himself admitted that only 10 paise reaches the masses out of the 1 rupee allocated.

And now with all this inflation and increased greed expect only 5 paise.

Lets look at it this way, it the present gov's last year of the term, they are going to do as much good as they can to brag later to get elected again, so probably more is gonna reach the target, still relatively more not phenomenal more.
The pocketing has been finished with in the first 2 or 3 years to satiate them.

from a cars perspective...i dont see any large scale changes to give a big boost. But yes, there may be a marginal increase in sale of small cars due to more money in hands of small taxpayers...

hybrid cars - there is no change in customs duty so imported components will remain costly as ever. Since there is a 10% reduction on excise so i am guessing a 1 lakh reduction in cost of honda civic hybrid whenever it is launched...final price maybe 19lakhs...

Short term Capital Gains raised to 15% :(

Income tax slabs have been readjusted.

That would mean more money in hands to buy cars/bikes.
