Says this is a ploy to avoid higher taxation on diesel cars

CSE welcomes and supports finance minister's move to consider removing subsidy on diesel used in passenger cars

  • Will help government cap revenue losses from luxury consumption of diesel

Decision will cut toxic risk from diesel cars and protect public health. The Delhi government has maintained the momentum and evoked the ‘polluter pays’ principle to directly disincentivise diesel cars to protect public health.

Budget skirts the real issues, does not do enough for environmental concerns: CSE

  • Finance minister loses courage to put fiscal breaks on SUVs and diesel cars

  • Budget fails to put forward any new proposal to strengthen bus transport

Front Page Teaser: 

Why is the Finance Minister so willing to allow the rich car owners to mis-use diesel subsidy? Why he wants to forego revenue from this luxury consumption and put peoples’ health and energy security at risk? There is also no support for the bus transport for the masses.

Finance Minister, it is time to take a decision to stop misuse of diesel subsidy by the rich diesel car owners. Any further delay will cost hugely to the nation and our health

Keep the taxes on big cars effectively high and not give in to industry pressure. Link up taxes with the actual fuel use of the car to prevent fuel guzzling

CSE supports Jairam Ramesh on restraints on SUVs and dieselisation of personal cars

  • CSE commends environment minister Jairam Ramesh for slamming increase in SUVs and use of cheap and toxic diesel in personal cars that add to the toxic risks in our cities

  • Trashes auto industry claim that the current fleet of diesel cars was ‘very clean’

Why clean diesel is a myth in India?

Hell broke lose when the environment minister Jairam Ramesh called SUVs criminal for guzzling cheap subsidized diesel. He is right -- The real beneficiaries of the diesel subsidy are the owners of "BMWs, Benz and Hondas'', and not the farmers. He pitched for reforms in diesel prices; penalty on those who use subsidized diesel for luxury use in SUVs.

Snakes and ladder on diesel taxes

It was our usual pre-budget musings -- Will you… Wont you…. free up the prices of transport fuels, or make diesel cars pay the same lifetime fuel excise as petrol cars.
