GST on cars

Taxes on cars are almost in line with 'sin products' (those that are heavily taxed, like tobacco, to discourage sales) under GST. We have a cess on so many cars. No wonder auto sales are where they are(attached) more

On one side we talk that city roads are heavily loaded with vehicles and even parking of vehicles is practically impossible.On the other side we talk vehicle sales are dropping.As per statistics vehicle sales were contineously rising since 2003.Probably is this Good for roads and city traffic.On the contrary we should have efficient and fast public transport and that will reduce congestion on the roads. more  
Conclusions I draw:
Drop is minimum in
* Market Leaders in Budget Car segments (sole exception Maruti)
* Drop is lower in Commercial segment leaders
* Both the above have lower GST ( 5 - 18%)
Drop in premium segment is max - perfect implementation of progressive taxation - higher wealth / affording capacity should pay more.
I think Govt Policy is working perfectly ...
The Govt has no reason to encourage an Industry making unaffordable products. more  
It is high time that the GST on vehicles is increased as this will curb the use of individual motorised transport using fossil fuel. more  
All are wait for Electric vehicle. more  
It is good that sales of Automobiles has come down. This will save the country's expenditure on importing Oil from outside, apart from reducing pollution. In addition, I wonder what the lady, Naina Mittal really wants to communicate? Actually reduction in the sales of all items like Cars, large White goods, Costly TV sets, Jewellery, Designer clothes, Real Estate, etc. has come down since the sale of such items was based more on investment of Black Money, rather then real need. The lady does not explain how the sales have reduced due to GST?
Some people really say senseless things. more  
Right. Automobiles business is highly cyclical. There were times few years ago when auto sales were in the doldrums, even commercial vehicles sales were going down -- and there was no GST in sight at that time. For information of Ms. Naina Mittal, taxes on automobiles have always been this high, even more than the present numbers. So to try to find a correlation and cause-effect relationship based on rhetoric should be avoided. more
