Festive season production, Focus on increasing sales: Siam
The entire focus of the automobile sector is on increasing production and sales during the festive season, while fighting the Corona virus. So that the demand can be met. Siam, an association of domestic vehicle manufacturers, said this on Friday. The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) said that in addition issues like reducing GST rate on two-wheelers will be looked into later.
SIAM President Kenichi Ayukawa said that everyone is currently fighting the corona virus nationally and globally. We must unite and integrate our efforts to combat the epidemic. This is our priority right now. He said this while answering questions related to another effort by SIAM to reduce the rate of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on two-wheelers. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had said that the two-wheeler is neither a luxury item nor harmful, so its GST rates can be revised. But no decision was taken at the GST Council meeting held on 27 August. Two-wheelers attract 28 percent GST.
Manufacturers demand to reduce GST on two-wheelers to 18 percent. Ayukawa said that the current priority of the automobile industry is to increase production and sales by taking safety measures from Kovid-19 in the festive season. That is why our focus is on it right now.
