AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURES ALL SET TO LAUNCH BS-IV COMPLIANT TWO-WHEELERS

Bharat Stage emission standards are the emission standards that were introduced in 2000, by the Central government to regulate the output of air pollutants from internal combustion engine equipment, including motor vehicles.

Under these norms, each stage specifies a certain limit on the pollutants released, which is controlled by the type of fuel made by the oil companies and the up gradations and modifications made by the auto firms to their vehicles to control the pollutants released from the vehicle.

In April 2010 Bharat Stage IV emission standards came into existence in India. These norms are supposed to come into effect nationwide from April 2017. After that Indian government is even thinking of upgrading BS-IV norms directly to BS-VI norms by 2020 while skipping BS-V norms, which will put a lot of extra pressure on the oil refineries that will need a substantial investment to upgrade their refineries to supply fuel types that can match the BS-V and BS-VI standards and automobile manufacturers that now need to progress gradually.


Though there are already some manufacturers in the market that are all set to go with their vehicles that are BS-IV compliant to hit the Indian Automotive market. BS-IV now being mandatory for two wheelers as well, has made manufacturers to produce two wheelers that are compliant with these norms. You can have a look at some of them below:

        
        
   

With this country wide implementation of BS-IV emission norms, government is striking for the pollution free India.

Shriram Automall India Limited (SAMIL), while following these norms and playing its part in the National Development by supporting government in every way possible has successfully unfurled vast Automalls in every nook and corner of the country. Through their vast inventories filled with used vehicles & equipments of every make & model compliant with current emission norms, company serves all kind of vehicle requirements of its customers in India.

INDIA ABOUT TO SKIP THE STEPWISE UP GRADATION OF “BS EMISSION NORMS”


Indian Government due to the increasing amount of pollution in the country instituted emission standards in 2000 known as “Bharat stage emission standards”. Progressively stringent norms have been rolled out since then. After the implementation of these norms every vehicle in the county manufactured has to be compliant with the regulations including motor vehicles.

Time & again, these emission standards upgraded. Bharat Stage (BS-III) norms were enforced across the country, in October’2010 & since then it is followed across the country. Under these norms, each stage specifies a certain limit on the pollutants released, which is controlled by the type of fuel made by the oil companies and the up gradations and modifications made by the auto firms to their vehicles to control the pollutants released from the vehicle.

All of the northern India has been using BS-IV relevant diesel & petrol from quiet long now. But in southern India, BS-IV fuel availability was made sure in 2016, which leads to supply of BS-IV fuel in Goa, Kerala, Karnataka, Telangana, Odisha, Union Territories of Daman and Diu, Dadra-Nagar-Haveli and Andaman & Nicobar. Now, the government is focused to supply the BS-IV fuel to the rest of the country by 1 April’2017. With this country wide implementation of BS-IV, allowance on registration of BS-III applicable vehicles in the country is on hook & yet not decided.

With always increasing amount of air pollution in the country has now decided not to follow the stepwise up gradation norm strategy i.e. From BS-II to BS-III & then to BS-IV as now the Oil Ministry, is looking forward to considering the proposal of switching BS-IV to BS-VI auto fuels directly, thereby skipping BS-V by 1 April’2020.

Although initial plan included up gradation of the norms to BS-V by 1 April’2020, as skipping an entire stage of emission norms will put a lot of pressure on the auto firms and even the oil companies, which have supported skipping of BS-V stage.

As under BS-V emission norms, vehicles have to be fitted with a diesel particulate filter, which needs to be optimized according to Indian road conditions, whereas under stage VI, selective catalytic reduction technology has to be optimized, where at each stage, the technology would be validated over 6lakh to 7lakh km. Given the complexity of the process, direct up gradation from BS-IV to BS-VI is going to be quite difficult, though Indian oil companies had told the government that they would be in a position to make BS-VI fuel ready by 2020 .


According to a PTI report, oil refineries will need huge amount of investment for up gradation of these norms, as over Rs 80,000crore was needed to upgrade BS-IV TO BS-V, and for direct up gradation to BS-VI, oil refineries might need more.

What will be GST (Goods & Services Tax) Implications?


GST (Goods & Services Tax) Law which is to be implemented in India by July’1, was made public in November 2016. GST provides for maximum rate of tax under the new regime i.e. at 14 per cent (14 per cent central GST and an equal state GST, taking the total to 28 per cent).


The peak tax rate will rise up to 20 per cent, from the current 14 per cent, in the model goods and services tax Bill, which will preclude the requirement of approaching Parliament for any change in rates in future.

The change in the peak rate, under GST bill will not tinker the 4-slab rate structure of 5, 12, 18 and 28 per cent agreed upon last year, GST council has only kept the upper cap higher at 20% so that in future in case of need of hike tax rate, there is no need to approach Parliament for a nod and the GST Council can raise it itself.

Decided 4 tier structure will hold for now, this means the central GST and state GST can be up to 20 per cent each, leaving the scope for a maximum levy at 40 per cent.

Like the model GST law, the CGST, SGST and UTGST law will be firmed up by the Centre, states and Union Territories, respectively.

Forthcoming session beginning from this March’9, Centre plans to introduce in parliament the Central GST (CGST) bill. After its ratification, the state will look forward to introduce State GST (SGST) in respective legislative assemblies.

Which goods & services will fall in which section is yet to be taken care of & after that’s done same will be taken to the Council for approval soon. So, we can assume that final approval will come by mid March only as next meet for GST will held on March 16.

While it’s still not sure which goods & services will fall in which segment, it’s almost quite that “Real-estate will come under GST, lots of black money finds its way in real-estate & everybody knows that. For curbing that, this step will be taken.”

Healthcare sector will not come under GST. As this sector caters the health needs of people, it should be kept aside from the purview of GST; otherwise it would be impossible for common people to access medical care which will be expensive & unaffordable. Currently Healthcare is out for service tax & similar will be followed even after its implementation as if GST levied on Healthcare, country will never reach the much avowed goal of providing Universal Healthcare coverage will not be possible. So, currently even Healthcare premium will be exempted from GST, in fact there will be a raise in tax exemption of 5,000- 20,000 on preventive health checkup to reach the goal of Universal Healthcare coverage.

Large number of items like food & other essential household items will be exempted from purview of GST. New amended GST bill will also affect the automobile sector positively while boosting the demand in the market as with the GST in place, taxes levied by the centre like excise duty and state levels taxes like sales tax, road and registration tax would all be subsumed into one. While following the 4 slab system the lowest slab tax rate will be implicated to the smaller cars making it easy to buy for common people.

As India aspires to evolve from a developing country to a developed nation, Indian economy with fastest growth rate is making an impact globally. The steps taken will change the pattern substantially of how Indian’s have been living and spending till now, while affecting present & future lives of people for better.

SameerMalhotra (CEO, Shriram Automall) said: “With implementation of GST in near future, I can see Indian economy grow with a boom, while delivering uncommon results to the citizens. Being in the used automobile industry, I always focused on evolving people from being a driver to an owner of the asset & with GST implemented I can see that dream coming true for many.”

Developing Scrappage Eco-system in India

Indian government while actively tracking development in automotive space, has introduces quite many new rules and advance technology processes to improve vehicle quality making them both road worthy & less polluting.

It is understood that, scrapping a vehicle involves not only shredding of parts but also setting up a mechanism that can, in an environmental-friendly manner, dispose of the scrap which includes segregation of metals, non-metals, rubber, and other materials.

Each one of these materials undergoes predefined recycle method, which implies that Scrappage policy can only be implemented only after setting up an eco-system wherein polluting and old vehicles can be duly collected and transferred to authorized dismantling facilities. These facilities would then safely and environment-friendly dispose the old scrap, recovering the reusable metals and materials that can go back into the production-cycle, which will also relieve India of unnecessary imports.

This Voluntary Vehicle Modernization Programme (V-VMP) or the Scrappage programme announced by the transport ministry can boost Commercial Vehicle (CV) sales by a cumulative 65 per cent between fiscals 2018 and 2020.

"The V-VMP scheme can also lead to incremental sales of 4.4lakh CVs (primarily MHCVs) worth Rs 66,000crore, a cumulative growth of 65 per cent during this three-year period". -Crisil Report.

If this scheme gets implemented which most probably will, over 2lakh CVs would get scrapped and replaced in the normal course through the three fiscals, given the current junking rate of around 67,000 units annually. Therefore the total vehicles opting for the scheme will be 6.4lakh.

Sales of medium and heavy trucks will face the increment of over 85% because of their lifespan of 20 years. But, pick-ups, upper light CVs and MHCV buses, which have a lower lifespan of 15-17 years, will have a smaller share in vehicles being scrapped.

 Government will also consider the fact that Transporters scrapping old CVs will not be the buyers of new CVs, since their business is viable using only an older truck. Considering this government may provide a cash discount to those who will be junking old vehicles or make the V-VMP incentive certificate issued to transporters tradable.


A cap on the engine cubic capacity stating the difference between scrapped and new CVs bought under the scheme will be considered by the Government.  Alternatively, the government may provide different incentives, based on engine cc of new CVs bought versus that of the old one scrapped or offer lower benefit for higher differential in engine cc.


Government is efficiently taking all the steps to make today a better tomorrow. SAMIL as a whole with its core values will play its part while providing used vehicles under these schemes to its customers in good quality, that too at minimal prices.  To register all you have to do is click the link below. 

BS-IV – TO BE COMMERCIAL VEHICLE’S GAME CHANGER


With the growing demand of commercial vehicles in India, we can consider that commercial vehicles (CV) play quite a vital role in growth of Indian Economy. Rules & laws do play an important role in their growth, but not that much as no matter what, commercial vehicles are going to be in demand for import and export purposes, as they are the best choice in disguise for transportation especially in areas where no other mode of transport could easily reach.

Because of the important role that, commercial vehicles play in Indian Economy, government can never put them off roads, though CV also plays the major role in air pollution. So, government has made it mandatory for all Automobiles including Commercial Vehicles of all types i.e. small, medium and heavy to be BS-IV compliant from April’2017 in India which will specify a certain limit on the pollutants released.

Engine of a commercial vehicle in layman’s term is synonymous to that of the human heart. So, it needs to be healthy and fit, so that it could work wonders for the rest of the body. But due to the peak load & base load, engine of a commercial vehicle becomes the most abused part of the vehicle body.

Therefore, engine has become the part, which since its existence has kept designers, manufacturers, integrators and testers busy, so that they could help this specific part to develop with time & speed. However, Modern diesel engines are lighter and more powerful, fuel efficient and environment-friendly.

Still with BS-IV coming in, there are two proven approaches to gear up for the change of CV. They are:

  • Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after-treatment approach
  • Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) with diesel oxidation catalyst or open filter

To keep the engine affordable, components are to be kept simple. Further complexity comes into play with the combustion chamber and maintenance of temperatures, charge cycles and electrification.

But BS-IV, being mandatory for CV vehicles will turn out to be a game changer as it will both increase its on road worth & will also make it last long with benefits like reduction in fuel consumption and more mileage.

Sameer Malhotra (CEO, Shriram Automall) said: “Commercial Vehicles being an important automobile invention play an important part in all the efficient segments in India i.e. construction, agriculture, import-export etc. Government has taken an effective step by updating them to BS-IV emission norms, which will increase both their engines life & worth”

Shriram Automall India Limited (SAMIL) being the no.1 service provider of used vehicles & equipment has updated their vast inventories with used vehicles & equipments of every make & model compliant with current emission norms.

2017 SET TO BECOME A BENCHMARK FOR TRACTOR SALES



The India Tractor Market is all set to witness a double digit growth of 16-18% in FY 2017 says CRISIL. However the growth in February & March to only be in single digit number as farmers still cope with the note ban and shifting towards using digital payment modes.

The sales were revived as the south-west monsoon came in normal. Rains were 97% of the long-period average, timely and well-distributed, resulting in Kharif production increasing 10% on-year (according to second advance estimates), and Rabi sowing also 5.7% higher on account of sufficient reservoir levels.

Farmers had a good sowing season, however due to the demonetization effect sales in November took a toll with de-growth of 13% in November, a modest growth of 7% in December and 5% in January. However the impact is expected to be short-term and sales should recover by the first quarter of 2017-18.

With faster acceptance of non-cash transactions in the states like Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, going forward demand for tractors is projected to see healthy growth.  Tractor sales would also benefit from favorable budget announcements such as record farm credit disbursal of Rs 10 lakh crore and other rural development initiatives.

Based on this, we see tractor volumes picking up in coming quarters, though, for lack of a low base as was the case this year, fiscal 2018 could close with a relatively sober growth of 8-10%.

If you are interested in buying pre-owned tractors than Shriram Automall is the right place to be at. The company offers widest range of used tractors & other farm equipment at optimal price to choose from.

INDIA URGING THE NEED TO DEVELOP POLLUTION FREE ENVIRONMENT

Image Source - https://c.slashgear.com/

To address the issue of national energy security, vehicular pollution & growth of domestic manufacturing capabilities, India unveiled “National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020”in 2013.

Not just that, India is looking forward towards the major shift to electric vehicles by 2030 after implementation of this plan. The “National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020” has the potential to bring a transformational paradigm shift in the automotive and transportation industry as it is one of the most ambitious & important initiative that Indian Government has taken for better road transport with no air pollution at all.

India is looking forward to the planned collaborated promotion of electric or hybrid vehicles by 2020, as through combination of policies, government is looking forward to bring population of about 6-7 million hybrid/electric vehicles in the country.


With certain level of indigenization of technology, India ensures global leadership in some vehicle segment. Plan is a composite scheme made up of different policy elements like:

  1. Demand side incentives to make acquisition of hybrid/electric vehicles easily accessible
  2. Promoting R&D in technology along with battery technology, power electronics, motors, systems integration, battery management system, testing infrastructure, and ensuring industry participation in the same
  3. Promoting charging infrastructure
  4. Supply side incentives
  5. Encouraging retro-fitment of on-road vehicles with hybrid kit

Around Rs.14000 crore has been estimated as an outlay amount for 2020 road map during the span of the scheme. India, with the urge of being the Developed country, is looking forward to provide to provide a clean and gasoline free transportation option to the people in a significant manner, while making this plan a reality which will also reduce oil import burden of the country eventually.

Under the broader theme of promotion of alternate fuels, India has already launched FAME - 'Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid and) Electric vehicles' in 2015. Till 2020, the scheme "intends to support hybrid/electric vehicles' market development and its manufacturing eco-system to achieve self-sustenance".

Connected Cars – Upcoming Technology Marvel

Connected cars being the latest buzz word has increased the pressure on the automobile industry to bring connected-cars in the market, which is going to make “Connected Cars” a reality soon.

Internet today is in everything and is everywhere: being known as a machine learning set or artificial intelligence, has made internet the centre around which all enterprises & world works today.

“Connected” vehicles as well are going to embrace all of these new-age technologies & are going to change the way how businesses and life runs today. The technological aspects of a connected car will involve multiple devices inside the car which will connect with the computing and application servers, which will help in computing power to access real time information and data.

Do you know? That our car, yes our today’s car, features about 100 million lines of programming code as it has the computing power of 20 personal computers which processes up to 25 gigabytes of data per hour.

Yet, Today’s Automotive Digital Technology focuses on optimizing upcoming vehicle’s internal functions. As now their aim is to turn developing car’s ability to connect with the outside world while enhancing the in-car experience.
