Diesel Cars May Become Costlier In March 2011 After Union Budget 2011

Posted: 21 Feb 2011 01:59 AM PST

Government of India consults a lot of Economic experts and other eminent experienced people before formulating the guidelines and rules in the annual Indian Budget. As per one of these reports, the recommendations make by "Kirit Parikh committee", there are many suggestions related to the Oil industry. The report talks of proposals to reduce economic burden on the Govt. by increasing Kerosene and LPG prices and deregulating Petrol and Diesel prices. The most striking recommendation in the report is to increase the prices of Diesel engine vehicles


An additional excise duty on a diesel vehicle to bring it at-par with petrol driven cars. At the current levels of  usage, an additional excise duty payable amounts to about Rs.80,000/year.

This recommendation is enough to make the major carmakers in India worry about the Diesel car pricing and sales. Most of the small diesel cars in India are sold because of their low running cost. If the initial cost of the car is increased by a big amount (amount may be announced in this budget), the economic factor for low running cost will be automatically offset. This will mean a drastic drop in the sales of small cars powered by Diesel engines. Lets keep our fingers crossed and see if these recommendations will actually be implemented in the budget of year 2011 or not.

Tata Indica DICOR To Be Revised In March 2011

Posted: 20 Feb 2011 11:20 PM PST

Tata has been the ultimate small car manufacturer after Maruti Suzuki as Tata Indica remained the one and only choice of buyers for quite an appreciable amount of time. Later the Indica was promoted at times and again by launching new models like Tata Indica Vista and Tata Indica V2 Turbomax , but the original Indica was somewhere left out.

Main reason for the ignorance was the lack of BS4 compliance which eventually led to its fall and now the company is planning to revise the old Tata Indica Dicor and will be rebadged as Tata Indica CR4. This will lead to higher sales volumes and capture a larger market share, if the car becomes a success.


Mr Ramakrishnan, Tata Motors Vice President (Commercial-Passenger Car Business Unit) said,"We will be introducing a Tata Indica BS IV variant (diesel) with CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection) next month"

Playing safely the company will price the new BS4 compliant model well above the BS3 one as the new CRDI diesel engine will incur some extra cost while it will marginally lower than Indica Vista so as to avoid any conflicts between the customers.
