Festive spirit seeping in 17.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
New Delhi The duty cut on petrol and diesel and some relaxation in personal insurance cover (PAC) rules have lifted the spirit of auto dealers during Navratri. Though it is still early to draw conclusions about festive cheer in the market, a marked improvement in sales and dealer sentiment was witnessed in the initial days of the nine-day festival, according to a report. Earlier dealers were worried about rising fuel prices and the increase in PAC robbing them of festival sales during Navrati, an auspicious time to buy. Moreover, it has become mandatory to buy third party insurance cover for three years for new cars and five years for two-wheelers under a Supreme Court order. With the Centre cutting fuel prices by Rs 2.5 a litre and some states making a matching reduction in duties, the concerns over fuel prices has eased to an extent. Similarly, though the insurance regulator has prescribed a compulsory PAC of Rs 15 lakh for Rs 750 per annum, it has given auto companies time till October 25 to file ...

Why free parking is (a) right 6.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Parking vehicles seems to be the most debated topic in Ahmedabad nowadays. It is being argued that free parking by Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) means ordinary citizens paying for services given to car owners, which is unfair. It may be free for AMC, but the user has actually paid for it. Most residents buy cars and two-wheelers, as the civic body has failed to provide a reliable, affordable and accessible (it should be comfortable as well, but let's not be so optimistic) public transport. Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Service (AMTS), once a reputed name (for its service) even nationally, is in a pathetic condition, quality-wise and quantity-wise. The much-hyped Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) is route specific and not accessible to all as last mile connectivity is not provided.
