If you are planning to buy a sports utility vehicle (SUV), it might be advantageous to wait for a few days. Finance Minister may amend proposal to raise excise duty as per The Hindu Business Line.

According to the article, the Government may modify its proposal to increase the tax on such vehicles, introduced in the Budget for 2013-14. Even the Heavy Industry Ministry had pitched in, suggesting that a threshold limit be introduced, so that budget utility vehicles are not taxed at the same rate as luxury SUVs.

Threshold of value means a model priced below a certain level will not attract the additional three per cent duty.

Bringing such a threshold may benefit SUVs such as Mahindra Scorpio, Mahindra Bolero,Tata Sumo and Tata Safari.
