Governments plan to retire old vehicles of 15 years and above is a news of past, it is currently working on planning an incentive scheme to excite owners to voluntarily retire their old vehicles. Now the auto industry is also baking the government’s decision by offering direct discounts over above government’s incentive scheme.

Government as per latest reports is awaiting a final plan of action from its authorized agency for retiring old vehicles. A person who opts to retire his vehicle will get a certificate from registered scrapyards, which could be used to avail incentives (such as tax rebates) from the government.

Meanwhile respecting the demand from the government the automobile industry will also be offering additional benefits over and above the government incentives like discount on purchase of new vehicle if a person provides the certificate of scrapping to the dealer.

This new move is intended to enable the entry of cleaner vehicles on the roads that emits less pollution when compared to the old ones. Also the move when implemented will also increase the demand for new vehicles all around the country as large number of people will opt to change their old car amid the incentives they will be getting.

As per the words of the ministry officials the policy will still take around 6 months to get implemented in full swing.

Tips on how to maintain a tractor

A tractor when purchased has to be maintained really well in order to get the maximum out of it and increase its life by couple of extra years.

Step 1 – Study the Manual
The manufacturer has already laid down basic steps on how to take care of your tractor, read those expert steps to begin with. Here are the points to look out for in the manual:
·    
     
  Maintenance Schedule – This will give you the exact time for routine interval including engine, transmission and hydraulic oil change.

       

  Specification – a table format arrangement to give you the detailed information about the type of fluid for transmission, hydraulic system, brakes, and engine coolant etc.

Step 2 – Protect the Tractor Well
In case of small farms & gardens they do not have the cabin to protect the seats, instrument panel & other metal components. It’s a good idea to park your tractor under shade or at least protect it from rains.

Step 3 – Check Fluids Regularly
Tractor usage is always measured in hours not in miles, so the actual amount of use may be deceptive. Check the user manual on how each fluid is checked. Check the engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant in the radiator, hydraulic oil, and battery electrolyte.

Step 4 – Keep an eye on belts and hoses
Your tractor may be fitted with hydraulic system & it may have high pressure hoses and failure of this fluid instrument can cause component (hydraulic pump) failure. If fittings or connections are leaking, tighten them or replace the seals.

Step 5 – Obtain the tools
Tractor maintenance requires numerous wrenches and other tools in larger sizes than for automobile maintenance, so plan to buy or borrow the tools you need.
With this effective tractor maintenance tips we are sure your tractor will live the extra life & give you good returns.

Meanwhile if you are looking to buy a used tractor, you may visit Shriram Automall the company offers widest range of used tractors at competitive price.

Check for Rust – this one is common but it is also easy to ignore, make sure you are vigilant in checking for any rust on the truck as it can make your investment worthless. Surface rust can usually be fixed but structural rust, for example around the frame, may spell inevitable doom for the truck.

Check the service records – these records can tell you a lot about a truck, check the repair history to analyze any repeat problem which can turn out to be expensive later. And be extra cautious of trucks with no service record at all.

Inspect the suspension – Make sure that the used truck you are going to select is having a smooth suspension in working condition. Due to the critical nature of suspension, as well as their custom design, repairs can be costly

The Odd-Even Formula Phase II

Delhi government in its bet to combat the rising air pollution in the city announced the odd even scheme for 15 days taking cues from those implemented in Beijing. The scheme allowed only odd number vehicles on odd dates & even on even dates. The result was a sharp decline in city traffic even at the peak hours & significant reduction in pollution percentage. Though many studies have shown different results on the pollution reduction, the CM is positive about it as the sale of crude oil dipped to 40% less during the period.


Now the government has decided to implement the scheme again from April 15 to April 30 amidst the positive response received by the people of Delhi. The scheme is to be implemented with same rules & regulations; bikers, single women drivers, important people of government including VIPs, Lok Sabha speaker etc. & CNG cars are exempted from the rule.

Speaking about the second phase of the scheme Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, CM of Delhi said that “we are thinking to implement the scheme every month however not decided it yet as it will help lower pollution and congestion both at the same time”

The government is taking other measures to check air pollution in the city including introduction of luxury buses with increased frequency to popularize public transport and vacuum cleaning of the roads, he added.

On the contrast as per a study conducted by School of Planning and Architecture (SPA) several commuters are ready to buy a new car if the scheme is fully implemented in Delhi, however majority of commuters will take public transport and help lower both pollution & congestion.

It remains unclear to see what will happen if the scheme is implemented in full force in Delhi. 

However Shriram Automall has come up with an interesting solution for people to escape the low like a boss. The company offers easy exchange of your used patrol or diesel car with a used CNG car option. Visit the nearest Automallsat Narela, Manesar or Sohna locations for more details.

Supreme Court Extends the Diesel Car Ban in Delhi

The ongoing diesel car ban which was enforced in December 2015 to March 31 2016 has been further extended to end of April now. The three-judge bench led by the Chief Justice of India, TS Thakur, said that it would lift the ban only if carmakers agree to a one-time environment cess.

The Supreme Court of India has banned diesel vehicles of more than 2000 cc in the national capital region as a measure to combat pollution in the city. The bench also asked the Central & Delhi government to examine the claim by automobile companies that modern diesel engines don’t cause more pollution than petrol engines since they work on superior technology.

The bench in December 2015 also banned the entry of large commercial vehicles like trucks, lohry etc. in the city after which 400,000 trucks had been diverted from Delhi and Rs 152 crore collected as cess which will be used to combat pollution & make greener roads.

LCV Segment Back on Track in FY 2016-17


The light commercial segment that was hit badly due to the economic slowdown & low rural demand is now showing the signs of revival in last few months.


In February the segment grew by almost 10% when compared to the same month in 2015. The sales stood at 33,324 units, whereas Feb 2015 sales were 30,382 units.

As per the ICRA rating agency the growth is here to stay. According to a report on Indian commercial vehicle industry, the outlook for the LCV segment is improving on back of low-base and improving viability. "We expect that the demand is likely to pick-up in FY 2017 on back of expectation of replacement-led demand (i.e. three years of declining sales), some pre-buying ahead of the implementation of BS-IV norms (by April 2017) and gradual improvement in viability on back of lower diesel prices," the report said.

Contradicting the earlier prediction of decline by 2-4% now the segment is all set to grow by 10% approx by the end of FY 2016-17. The overall commercial vehicle segment is showing a positive outlook & growth can be seen in all segments. The M&HCV (Truck) segment has registered a growth of 30.6% in the first 11 months of FY 2016. ICRA also expects the domestic industry volumes to recover in the near-term on back of expectation of fresh permits by some of the key states like Maharashtra in Q4 FY 2016. Accordingly, industry volumes are expected to recover and grow by 8-10 percent in the domestic market in FY 2017.

Meanwhile the industry is hopeful of achieving the desired growth the outlook for used commercial vehicles also ride high as the segment continues to perform well even in the bad day. Now when we have the industry pundits predicting growth in new CVs the used commercial vehicle will outgrow the numbers significantly.

In conclusion if you are looking ahead to buy a used Commercial Vehicle than visiting Shriram Automall will turn out to be a good decision as the company offers a wide range of used CVs under one roof at competitive price.

“Budget of Delhi aims to boost the public transportation system, The Delhi government is all set to introduce 1000 new non-ac busses. It will invest a significant amount of Rs. 325 Cr. towards it which will translate into lesser use of personal transport for daily commuting leading to less congestion on roads” said Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) in a statement.

The budget also paid attention towards welcoming more electric vehicles in the state as it exempts the road tax on registration of electric & hybrid vehicles & also reduce the VAT rate from 12.5% to 5% on battery operated transport means including e-rickshaw, battery operated vehicle and hybrid automobile.

Welcoming the state government's plans to acquire new buses, it said: "These steps in totality would lead to a more robust public transport system. SIAM believes that these steps taken towards strengthening the public transport system would go a long way in addressing the issue of traffic on road."

With these new initiatives by the government we are certain that the people of Delhi would love to reap benefit out of the new rule & buy more electric vehicles to trim down the pollution which is today a major life threat around the world.
