In excess of and over this substantial sum of funds also gets blocked as GST refund with the taxation office and we are unable to bear this economic stress. For that reason, we ask for the central government to not disregard the vehicle parts companies and minimize GST on our field as well along with the reduction on vehicles.”

Later on, when GST was imposed on us, we had been saved in the highest slab of 28%, whereas there are some sectors exactly where only 5% GST was levied. Put together with this the higher price of electric power and now the labour lack are killing our industry. The only key aid which can show to be a gamechanger for us is if the GST on our market is diminished from 28% to 18%. With the 10% reduction there will be a lot less capital involved and most importantly it will guide to enormous reduction in the charge of auto parts, which will give a press to our industry. Thus, we request the Centre and GST council to lessen GST on the vehicle pieces as perfectly in addition to minimizing the identical on automobiles.”
According to Nitin Sharma, another automobile sections maker, “I consider alongside with reduction of GST on the auto elements by the centre government, our state authorities need to also engage in its purpose in uplifting of the auto areas production marketplace. The most immediate aid which can be presented to us by Punjab authorities is the reduction of level of electrical power to Rs. 5 for each unit which currently is pretty much double. If each GST reduction of 10 p.c and electricity tariff reduction are applied then there will be substantial increase in our industry”
