Shriram Automall’s Strong Presence in Tier-II & Tier-III cities

Shriram Automall – India’s largest service provider for exchange of used vehicles & construction equipment has a strong presence all over the country, currently the company operate through 56 well structured Automalls ranging from National highways to even remotest corners. Talking about the Tier 2 & Tier 3 cities we are planning to expand in cities like Agra, Aligarh, Coimbatore, Dhanbad, Mangalore, Nagpur, Nashik & Solahpur, where people from these locations will get benefit through our professional services.

60 inaugurated Automalls is the number the company aims to achieve by the end of FY 15-16 & 70 by the end of FY 2016-17, in both Tier-II & Tier-III cities the strong presence with top performing Automalls like like Trichy, Madurai, Pondicherry, Salem, Tirunelveli, Coimbatore, Vijayawada, Warangal, Visakhapatnam, Hubli, Nellore, Patancheru and Rajahmundry generates majority of the business. We see a good demand for Agricultural Equipment, Passenger Vehicles & Two Wheelers in these cities.

When we talk about cities of different tiers we find huge difference in the mentality of customers. Talking about the customers from metro cities, these people are relatively easier to convince & persuade. They don’t come with a specific vehicle requirement in mind & can opt for other vehicle options in case of unavailability of a specific model. They prefer to communicate in English & takes less time in making a buying decision. Mostly we see they demand for used PVs, Fleet of Trucks etc.
On the other hand the customers from the tier 2 & tier 3 cities are more rigid on the choice of vehicle they want, they prefers to communicate in their regional language, takes time in deciding the vehicle of their choice. They consider price as one of the most important factor before buying a vehicle. Majority of vehicles they demand are tractors & Passenger vehicles.

Shriram Automall aims to strengthen its presence in these areas through our upcoming Automalls in cities like Agra, Aligarh, Coimbatore, Dhanbad, Mangalore, Nagpur, Nashik & Solahpur, where people from these locations will get benefit through our professional services.

Automobiles, all set to cost more in Maharashtra

Automobiles like bikes, cars, scooters, public transport, and auto rickshaw will now cost more in Maharashtra as the government has proposed to hike the Motor vehicle tax on all vehicles in order to fight one of the worst draughts in the state’s history.

Finance Minster of Maharashtra Sudhir Mungantiwar presenting budget on Friday said “the government will revise the existing Motor Vehicle Tax system. “Instead of levying tax on the basis of whether the vehicle is registered as a personal vehicle or company or office vehicle, we now propose to levy Motor Vehicle Tax on the basis of the cubic capacity of the vehicles”

Under the revised system of tax, private vehicles of up-to 99cc will have 8 per cent tax, those between 100cc and 299cc 9 percent while the ones above 300cc will be taxed 10 per cent. In case of a company or any undertaking the vehicles will attract just the double of the new proposed tax. For example a company vehicle above 300cc will attract a tax rate of 20 per cent now.

The state will continue to tax more on petrol & diesel due to draught in state & aims to earn overall net additional revenue of Rs. 363 Cr.

With the rise in the tax structure for new automobiles we will see a positive incline of people to buy used automobiles in order to save them from paying the extra amount. The ratio between new & used vehicle ratio has always been 1:1 most of the times, however with these changes in tax we can expect the ratio to change & used vehicle segment to attract more buyers.

If you are looking to buy a usedvehicle in Maharashtra than Shriram Automall is the right place to come. The company offers widest range of all used vehicles & equipment including construction equipment, commercial vehicles, agricultural equipment, passenger cars and two & three wheelers. 

You can visit the companies Panvel, Aurangabad, Chandrapur and Mumbai Automall to buy the best used vehicles easily.

On the bedrock of additional infrastructure cess, SIAM cuts passenger vehicle growth forecast

Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers the most elite body of the Indian vehicle industry has cut down the growth rate in its forecast for both current & FY 2016-17. The society has earlier forecasted that the passenger vehicle has will grow at 8% this year & 12% in FY 2016-17. However as per its recent update it cut down the growth in this fiscal to 6-8% & FY 2016-17 to 11%.

"Although we had forecast initially in the beginning of this fiscal that we expect growth of PVs to be 6-8 per cent, we have increased it to around 10 per cent when sales picked up during the year. Now due to the infrastructure cess we are revising it back to 6-8 per cent," Siam Deputy Director General Sugato Sen told PTI.

Explaining the rationale, he said, "Usually March is a good month for the auto industry from a sales point of view but this year it may not be after post Budget announcements. This March is going to be a difficult one.”

It’s been two consecutive months where we saw the decline in passenger car sales, latest it fell 4.2 percent in February, lowering the overall growth outlook for the year to end-March.

As an aftermath of the announcement most of the automobile manufacturers have already started revising the prices of all their models.

This announcement is expected to give a push to the used cars segment as more people are likely to get inclined towards a used car. This will help buy the choice of their car by paying fewer price.

If you are looking ahead to buy a used car than paying a visit to Shriram Automall will certainly be helpful as the company offers the widest range of used cars, SUVs & taxis etc. at competitive price.
