Government urge to open authorized automated fitness stations by october 2018 to examine vehicles

Indian automobile industry is one of the key drivers of Indian economy. Since liberalization in 1991 industry has come a long way producing different types of vehicles broadly classified into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles.

Sector is boosting the Indian economy by improving productivity and creating employment opportunities which is great, but on the other hand, out of many reasons automobile sector has become one of the main reasons of air pollution. As many petrol passenger vehicles has been converted to diesel versions which are much more polluting as it gives more mileage and comes cheap.

Among the 20 most polluted cities out of which 13 are in India, Delhi topped the list.
– said WHO (World Health Organization)

While planning to take a stand government has decided to open the authorized automated fitness stations in India by 1st October’2018.

Government is planning to face the problem at hand by verifying both transport and non-transport vehicles in a planned automated way in near future, as according to IFTRT (Indian Foundation of Transport Research and Training) government should focus on road worthiness of vehicles rather than on vehicle scrappage.

Apart from these, the country is planning to be strict on real driving emission tests of new vehicles. As they plan to fix the vehicular pollution by giving CoP (Confirmation of Product) only to those who confirm the requisition tests through automated procedures. This will stop unsafe vehicles from coming on roads and will also stop human interference like motor vehicle inspectors etc. in testing procedures which will stop easy money.

Some states are not yet ready to acknowledge the new scheme, till then idea has been deferred so that states could make up their mind about adequate number of stations in the country.

On the topic Sameer Malhotra (CEO, Shriram Automall ) said “ I am glad that government is so keen about making the country pollution free, and as a capable citizens of the country, we at Shriram Automall would love to play the role in same by accepting and committing to the new schemes and stations in the country.”

Looking forward to bridge the gap and make a deal directly with a person while buying or selling the pre-owned vehicles and equipments. You can stop looking, as if you are reading this you are looking right where you need to look to attain the most informative, transparent, user friendly experience you 

I am Anuj Kohli (32), two years back with increasing demand of crops, I was looking forward to diversify my business in lending harvesters and tractors on rent to land owners. But I was all confused and not so sure about the pre-owned vehicles and equipments in the market. I was not even sure about the sum of money I needed to invest for the same.

That’s the time when a friend suggested me about SAMIL’s vast inventories. And nothing makes me feel better than remembering the day I stepped in SHRIRAM AUTOMALLS because that’s when their team changed my life.

I was amazed to see the vast collection of vehicles and equipments they had to offer and from then till now whenever I visit the Automall, their inventory seems stuffed with all the latest used vehicles & equipments people like me need to grow their business. Their vast range of quality vehicles that too at affordable prices is what makes it my last stop for both disposing and buying pre-owned vehicles.

With such kind of facilities SAMIL always find an edge to be the no.1 platform in the market as their team works in a result oriented culture and their supply and quality of pre-owned vehicles and equipment match the need of customers.

With so many services to choose according to our convenience striking a deal through Private Treaty suited me best as with this service not only I was able to meet the person whose disposed pre-owned vehicle I was buying but I was also able to strike a deal with him in person as SAMIL’s Private Treaty bridges the gap between the buyer and the seller providing complete transparency in the easiest and simplest ways possible while minimizing our troubles and doubts. Once a suitable quote is approved they even helped me with the financial services they had to offer helping me with bulk buying.

As Sameer Malhotra ( Director & CEO, Shriram Automall) quoted that his success is nothing but the direct reflection of a good team and their hard work, as good things in business are never done alone but with the team of people.

2016 was a rough year for the automobile industry; it has gone through a roller coaster ride with some government decisions like diesel ban, GST and demonetization hampering the overall industry growth projected for FY 2016-17. Auto industry contributes 7.1% to the country’s GDP and has been on an evolving note. It is the only industry that took the PM Modi’s Make in India project on its head and contributed the best.

 The industry is currently recouping and hence a lot of friendly announcements are expected in the Budget 2017 to further boost growth.

Relaxation on excise duty - The industry is expecting lowered as well as uniform excise duty structure. This will essentially reduce vehicle cost and boost sales.

Faster implementation of GST - The Industry will be expecting the implementation of GST, proposed to come into effect from July 1, 2017, without further delay.

Clarification on vehicle scrappage policy - The industry will be keeping its ear to the ground for announcements on incentives, timeline and fleet modernisation under the scrappage program.

More incentives for hybrid and electric vehicles – Along with the FAME India scheme, the industry still expects lower taxes and benefits for the segment to grow in the country.

Reduction in interest rates - Indian automobile industry will be expecting government to reduce interest rates on auto loans for passenger as well as commercial vehicles.

All of us are hoping for a favorable budget this year as last year despite all positive scenarios the industry felt short of its projection. This year if all of these announcements are made than there will be no stopping as the industry alone contributes a lot in terms of revenue, employment, Foreign Direct Investment. As the new and old vehicle market go hand in hand, we expect tremendous boost in the demand of pre-owned market altogether. Sameer Malhotra, CEO SAMIL

Wednesday, 1 February 2017


Tractors Industry which was witnessing steady single digit growth for the past three years are all set to post a double digit growth this fiscal even in this scenario of demonetization which has hit the country adversely.

As per several tractor manufacturers, tractor sales is likely to grow by 18-19% to 5.8-5.85 lakh units by the end of this fiscal. If this comes true, it will be the second highest sales volume recorded in the domestic tractor market in a year after sales surged 20% to a record high of 6,34,151 units in 2013-14. Between April and October 2016, tractor sales accelerated 25% over that in the previous year. After falling 14% in November, sales picked up in December to grow 7% over that a year ago.

At the same time the pre-ownedtractor segment is also showing a decent growth in the past one year, organized players like Shriram Automall India Limited are receiving good demand for used tractors thanks to the favorable outcomes this year in terms of decent monsoon and sowing of rabi crops.

Industry pundits are expecting a good demand in the year to come as the new budget for FY 2017-18 is all set to boost the spending capacity of all individuals across the country and with the implementation of GST can make tractors cheaper and easy to afford.

The ongoing year has already created a favorable market scenario for the farm equipment segment and in the next FY we are expecting to have a positive increase in the demand for used tractors are the government is all set to focus more on the agricultural sector. Also people often opt to buy a pre-owned tractor through finance and put their hard earned money in avoiding crop failure.’ Said Sameer Malhotra, CEO SAMIL
