AC industry sweats on high GST rate 5.8.2018 DNA: Top News
The cooling products (room air-conditioner and refrigerator) market in India witnessed several challenges during fiscal 2018. While implementation of goods and services tax (GST) resulted in a market frenzy to liquidate pre-GST stocks, industry players faced another issue of a change in energy efficiency ratings. The former forced cooling product makers to heavily discount their unsold inventory while the latter resulted in a pricing issue between old and new (energy labelled) stocks in the market. The overall market has gradually stabilised post the two challenges even as cooling products taxed at the highest bracket still lingered in the minds of Indian and multinational companies. While the recent decision by the GST Council to bring refrigerators in the 18% tax slab brought cheers in the market, players in the room air-conditioner (RAC) industry have been left high and dry as they are still taxed in the 28% bracket. Adding to the woes of RAC makers was the uncertain weather conditions that lead to ...

Government working to boost Air India's operational efficiencies: Piyush Goyal 25.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The government is giving a new thrust to strengthen Air India's management practices and operational efficiencies while the disinvestment plan would depend on various circumstances, Finance Minister Piyush Goyal said on Monday. The strategic disinvestment plan for debt-laden Air India did not take off after it failed to attract any bidder when the deadline for submitting preliminary bids ended on May 31. Against this backdrop, Goyal said there is a new thrust being given to further strengthen management practices and improve operational efficiencies of the airline. "In the next 18 months, you will see the visible change," the minister told reporters on the sidelines of a conference here. About the failed disinvestment proposal, a senior government official said the rise in oil prices has stressed out a lot of companies in India as well as internationally. "If you see the balance sheets of all airline companies worldwide, (they have) suddenly taken a turn to the worse in the last three to four months. In ...
