Just called a Honda dealer here and asked him about the price hike. He told me the hike was effective immediately and that new prices would come in by tomorrow. Can this be some how confirmed? I was thinking they might delay this till 1st April as a March offer.

The increase in excise duties is for the new financial year (announced as a part of budget for next financial year). Unless the govt issues the notification to the effect, the new excise rates are no applicable.

but always there is a confusion and us-suspecting aam aadmi (common man) is taken for a ride.

Yes, there is a way to do that

Just levy a flat tax of 1 lacs (or some percentage, say 10%) on all new diesel cars brought. Infact if I recall correctly, this proposal is already being discussed. Since you cannot have different diesel rates for cars and trucks, this could be the only way out. I hope this is implemented. Its insane that a poor man pays more tax for his scooter's petrol than a BMW owner pays for his diesel!

Yep this was exactly what was proposed by the Parikh committee Parikh's flat tax deflates diesel car makers' plans

They propose a tax of Rs 80000 on all diesel cars. One tax for all cars may not be the best idea however and a percentage of the car price sounds like a better idea. For example an extra tax of 5-10% can be imposed on all diesel cars. Fuel subsidy has to be eliminated in the long term and currently it is diesel which is the most subsidised

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

Government of India : Union Budget and Economic Survey (http://indiabudget.nic.in)

Which all cars got spared? Is it cars with 1.2L or smaller engine?
Any notification on the same available?

So it seems small car prices are also going up, excise has gone up to 10% from the earlier 8%. Polo prices are set to up go then, and we'll have to see how much of an effect this will have on figo prices

The allies (TMC & DMK) have joined the opposition in demanding rollback of diesel prices at least.
... Looks like diesel prices going down soon. Diesel cars will soon be more attractive.

P.S.: I would like to get Chidambaram back to the Finance Ministry. He was best FinMin we had got in recent times, instead of the Bengali Gentleman.
Soinaji, please pay heed to the request!!!

I would want otherwise. At least got a off cycle hike of ~4500 Rs due to this Bengali gentleman and who knows if the government can push the DTC in time we can even see more than 15K hike in our net incoming amount without even our employers involvement ( except TDS )

So, even if the car prices are going up and fuel prices are also likely to be increased , he had shown some gesture to compensate that monthly.

These are purely my opinion based on the tangible benefits it provides to salaried people.
