The excise duty hike (or reduction) is always with immediate effect, as is the fuel price hike.

I have booked a new car and is expected to be delivered next week. I wonder if I will have to pay the new price. I am sure the price will go up at least by 15k.

If the car is invoiced (Full payment and all) in your name, you dont have to pay the extra amount. If it is not yet invoiced then you have to pay the difference amount as well.

the excise duty on small cars is still the same.
only cars above 4m in length and above 1200cc for petrol and 1500cc for diesel will go up by 2 percent.

Remember that the excise duty was reduced from 12% to 8% for small cars and from 24% to 20% as part of the stimulus package for the auto industry in late 2008

Some portals mentioned the duty will be up by 2% and will be 10% now. So it seems small cars are also included in the raise.

Before the budget, excise on petrol and diesel per litre was 14.35 and 4.60. Post budget, it is 15.50 and 5.75.

Can someone point out the justification behind a petrol automotive owner (from a 100 cc scooter to 800 to Corolla to even bigger cars) paying higher excise duty than a diesel automotive owner (trucks, etc but in particular all the luxury cars).

Not too sure about this Daewood, because I just spoke to the sales guy from whom I purchased my Hyundai i20 last Thursday at Hyundai Motor Plaza, Delhi. He confirmed that the prices for all cars will go up, including the i20 for which the hike is abt 10000 roughly in Delhi. He said he would mail me the new price list by tomm. Lets wait n watch the impact.

this news report updated at 15:35 in ET says small cars are spared,
though earlier reports said all cars will see an increase in duty.

Union Budget 2010: Excise duty on large cars up two per cent, small cars spared- Union Budget-News-The Economic Times

even the official Indian Finance Ministry site talks only about the hike of 2% for big cars

This is exactly what the Finance Minister said,

"Therefore, I propose to partially roll back the rate reduction in Central Excise duties and enhance the standard rate on all non-petroleum products from 8 per cent to 10 per cent ad valorem. The specific rates of duty applicable to portland cement and cement clinker are also being adjusted upwards proportionately. Similarly, the ad valorem component of excise duty on large cars, multi-utility vehicles and sports-utility vehicles which was reduced as part of the first stimulus package, is being increased by 2 percentage points to 22 per cent."

So, clearly that means all cars would attract an excise duty of 10 % & the ad valor em component of excise duty on large cars, MUVs & SUVs would be 22 %.

The government needs to finally work on an expense and not an income budget. An organisation, which the govt. is the biggest is expected to be efficient, reduce cost and add value. But its not happening.
  • They are implementing schemes which are just 20% efficient
  • Implemented the sixth pay commission but the govt. offices operate with the same efficiency
  • Inflation has gone through the roof, not to mention the quality in general because of this
  • How many PSUs are privatised and contribute in terms of increased profits.
  • An advanced country like the US too gives subsidies on fuel and tries to keep it low
  • Fuel price wil affect not only petrol heads like us but everyone and everything.
But we should not blame the government, we ought to be blamed. We again and again vote them to power.
Statistics show that whenever the congress govt. has come to power yes inflation has increased and quality of life decreased.

Well justified (i am a diesel swift owner) as long as you can suggest a method by which the govt can tax diesel car owners and not the trucks...
