With octroi gone, cars & bikes make a rush for Mum RTOs105% More Bikes Registered. For Cars, Rise Is 42%RTOseva4U.com informs you that there has been a sharp increase in the registration of new cars, twowheelers, minibuses and tempos in Mumbai because of the abolition of octroi collection at the city’s check posts in 2017. Before that, many Mumbaikars preferred to register their vehicles in other municipal areas of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, if not in cities beyond MMR.In just one year, 105% more two-wheelers and 42% more cars and SUVS have been registered in the island city. The number of new registrations in the suburbs too has gone up, though not to as great an extent as in the island city.Octroi comprised a 4.5% additional levy on the purchase of vehicles under the jurisdiction of the four RTOs within BMC limits. This included the Tardeo RTO (island city), Wadala RTO (eastern suburbs), and Andheri and Borivli RTOs (western suburbs). According to an official, a significant number of buyers would prefer to register their vehicles outside Mumbai to save costs, which would be Rs 3, 000-5, 000 for two-wheelers, Rs 18, 000 on an average for a hatchback to around Rs 60, 000 for an SUV. One would register vehicles at RTOs as far as Pen or Panvel.“But after octroi abolition came into effect on July 1, 2017, there is no difference between registering a car within Mumbai or outside it. You have to pay the same road tax and insurance across MMR, ” said a senior official from the Tardeo RTO. “Now, whether or not supported by dealers, buyers are opting for registration within Mumbai.”The Tardeo RTO provided statistics comparing the registration of vehicles in 2017-18 with that done in 2016-17. In the island city, especially south Mumbai, the number of motorcyles and scooters registered in 2017-18 was 105% more (in numbers, a rise of 24, 000) as compared to the previous year, while car registrations shot up by 40% (a rise of 5, 000). In case of commercial vehicles, four-wheeler delivery vans went up by almost 175%, and minibuses by 660%, officials said.“In some cases, we are getting applications from car dealers in Thane who want vehicles to be registered in Mumbai (eastern suburbs RTO) as buyers stay there. In one case, a buyer from Mulund could not find any showroom of his preferred car in his vicinity and went to Thane to buy the vehicle. In his case, the dealer at Thane assured that the vehicle will be registered in Mumbai with an MH-03 number plate (eastern suburbs), ” said an official from Wadala RTO.Also, the process of registrations has become faster because of the implementation of the online system Vahan across RTOs. More than 80% of the job is being done at the manufacturer and dealer levels, including the uploading of buyer’s information, fee paying and providing the vehicle’s technical specifications. An RTO inspector checks the vehicle’s specifications within 24 hours, and within the next 24 hours, an assistant RTO gives approval and also assigns a new registration number. “Now, instead of waiting endlessly for a number plate, you can get it within 48 hours of the file reaching the RTO, ” said a transport department official.Credit: Somit Sen, TimesGroup.Com

Now, Centre to link driving licence withAadhaar to weed out fake onesThe Centre is in the process of linking driving licences with Aadhaar Number to weed out fake licences and a software for this covering all states on a real-time basis is under preparation, the Supreme Court was told on Wednesday.A bench comprising Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta was informed about it by a court-appointed committee on road safety headed by former Supreme Court Judge Justice K S Radhakrishnan. This assumes significance as a five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra is currently hearing a clutch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar scheme and the enabling 2016 law. The committee, in its report filed in the top court, said it had held a meeting on November 28 last year with the joint secretary of Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) to discuss several issues, including procurement of fake licences and how to eliminate it. "On the issue of fake licences, joint secretary, MoRTH informed that NIC (national informatics centre) is now preparing 'Sarthi-4' under which all the licences would be linked to Aadhaar, " the report said. "This software will cover all the states on real-time basis and it will not be possible for anyone to get a duplicate or fake licence anywhere in the country, " it said. The advocate representing the committee told the bench that the panel was scheduled to have a meeting with the MoRTH and other authorities concerned on February 22-23 to discuss compliance of directions given by the apex court earlier. Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand, appearing for the ministry, told the bench that fatalities in road accidents in India have gone down by around three percent in 2017 as compared to 2016. The bench said it was "heartening to know" that number of fatalities and injuries in road accidents have come down. In its report, the committee said it had asked states and union territories (UTs) to forward road accident data for entire 2017. "The committee has since received data from all the states/UTs, except Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram and Daman and Diu which indicates that in the states/UTs which have submitted data, there has been a reduction of 4, 558 fatalities (i.e. 3.0 per cent) and 24, 023 injuries (i.e. 5.0 per cent) in 2017 as compared to 2016, " the report said. The committee told the court that through its November 24 last year letter, it had asked all the states to set up a road safety fund which would be non-lapsable and to have a steady flow of funds by the diversion of "significant" portion of fines collected from traffic violations. It said some states have already set up road safety fund and the committee was pursuing the issue with remaining states in order to ensure full compliance of the apex court's order which had said that the fund should be established by March 31, 2018.The report said at the November 28 last year meeting, it was discussed that since driving licences were now in the form of a smart card, its punching in cases of default was likely to damage the data stored in it. "Joint Secretary MoRTH pointed out that presently NIC is in the process of developing central computerised data base and all the states would be covered under the same. "This data base is likely to be effective from October 1, 2018, " it said, adding, that all the offences committed by the driver would be recorded in this data base and there would be no necessity for punching of driving licences.The committee further said that 20-25 per cent fatalities on roads occur due to non-existence of pedestrian facilities, like footpaths, over-head passes, and under-passes and so it has asked the states to provide pedestrian facilities in accordance with the Indian Road Congress (IRC) guidelines. The court, while posting the matter for hearing on April 23, said that the committee should ensure compliance of its directions given earlier.The apex court had in November last year issued a slew of directions on road safety and asked all states and UTs to set up a trauma centre in each district of the country and make safety norms part of school curriculum. It had also directed that road safety education and counselling be made a part of school curriculum by the state boards by April 1, 2018, and at least one trauma care centre be set up in every district with an ambulance. The court had issued its directions on a PIL raising the issue of road safety in the country.SOURCE: BUSINESS STANDARD | 8 FEB 2018, 4:41 AM

End of the road for Tata Indica and Tata Indigo as production ends: Here’s what makes Indica an iconic Tata carTata Indica and Tata Indigo sedan production has been stopped permanently by Tata Motors. Tata Indica has served the company for 20 long years and was first showcased in 1998. The car has helped the company to grow as a brand and here's why the Indica is an iconic car for Tata Motors.By: Ronak Shah May 23, 2018  1:19 PMIt’s official now! Tata Motors has ceased the production of its Tata Indica and Tata Indigo cars in India. Starting this financial year 2018-19, Tata Motors has not manufactured a single unit of its Indica hatch and Indigo sedan confirms data provided by SIAM. The company has tasted new success with its IMPACT design cars and old styling on the Indica and Indigo resulted in lower sales and this move was expected sooner or later. During the recently concluded the financial year 2017-18, Tata Motors had manufactured 1, 686 units of Indica and 556 units of its Indigo CS sedan. Gradually the company has now completely stopped the production of the said cars.Tata Motors company spokesperson said, “With the changing market dynamics and the evolution of Tata Motors design language towards impactful design, we have decided to phase out the Indica and the Indigo eCS, a common phenomenon in a product lifecycle.”In many ways, Tata Indica has been an iconic car for Tata in India. Ever since it was first showcased at 1998 Geneva Motor Show the hatchback was an aspirational buy for people who were upgrading from small cars to hatchbacks. Tata Indica is also India’s first fully indigenous car and ever since its launch has been the frontrunner in company’s product line-up. Tata Indica became famous with some very interesting integrated marketing campaigns and was introduced with the tagline “More car per car, ” the ad campaign focused on roomy interiors and affordability. Tata Indica became popular right from the word go and received over 1.15 lakh bookings in just one week of the launch and became the segment leader in just two years. Tata Indica’s success gave the company confidence to launch the all-new Indica in its second generation in 2008 and was named as Indica Vista.Interestingly, the company had showcased an electric version of its Indica Vista sedan way back in 2011 but never made it to production.“Establishing itself as a ‘coming of age car’ for India, the Indica has been a much loved and admired brand, ” the company’s spokesperson further added. The Indica was followed by the Tata Indigo launch in 2002. The Indigo too was received well in the PV market and has been much appreciated for its compact design and spacious interiors.To meet the upcoming emission and safety norms, Tata Motors is now streamlining its product strategy and not all existing cars may see a BS-VI future. Upgrading to BS-VI will require huge investments and it is expected that many of the slow-moving products will be discontinued from the Indian market. Tata Motors has showcased its new IMPACT 2.0 design language on its H5X SUV and 45X hatchback at the Auto Expo 2018. We expect the company to roll out a premium hatchback in India by 2020.After Tata Indica and Tata Indigo, we expect Tata Nano to cease production soon. In the month of April, the company only manufactured 45 units of its Nano. However, we might see Tata Nano being revived in an electric avatar. Not just Tata Motors, we expect other companies including Mahindra to discontinue some of its products from its line-up.While from a business point of view it is completely normal to see changes in product strategy, for many born in the Indica era the car has given many fond memories and has an emotional connection with the car. Tata Motors will continue to provide the required necessary service support to its existing Indica and Indigo customers.
