In news from the automobile sector, carmakers such as Tata Motors and Maruti are looking to leverage subsidies extended by the government to sell more electric cars to cab operators even though the fleet market is struggling due to the impact of Covid-19.

Learn: How to Potentially Accumulate Rs 7 Crore in Wealth Over the Long-term

Electric cars come at a hefty premium over their CNG or diesel variants, but for cab drivers in states such as Maharashtra, Gujarat and Delhi they cost only marginally higher due to a number of sops extended by state and central governments.

If one combines sops extended by the centre in the form of lower GST and faster adoption and manufacturing of electric (FAME) incentive and those offered by some states, like zero registration fee, an electric compact sedan to be used as a taxi will come at 25-30% discount.

In rupee terms, a benefit of Rs 3-3.5 lakh.

For example, a Tata Tigor EV in Delhi would cost Rs 11-12 lakh without incentives. However, after deducting state and central subsidies along with benefits on zero registration fees, it may cost Rs 7.5-8 lakh on road.

Comparable with a Maruti Suzuki Dzire CNG, that would cost Rs 6.8 lakh to Rs 7.5 lakh in Delhi.

Tata Motors said it plans to launch a range of CNG cars under the brand very soon.

Tata Motors share price and Maruti Suzuki share price have opened the day up on a flat note.

Moving on to news from the retail sector, Titan is among the top buzzing stocks today.

Ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala has reduced his stake in Titan for the third consecutive quarter.

Titan is one of the widely known stocks in Jhunjhunwala's portfolio.

Jhunjhunwala cut his stake by 0.25% in the company in June 2021 quarter.

He and his wife together held 5.5% stake in Titan as of September 2020, which they reduced to 5.3 percent in December 2020.

Further, it was cut to 5.1% in March 2021. Now, after the June 2021 quarter, their stake in the company stands at 4.8%, according to BSE data.

As per the shareholding pattern June 2021, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala reduced his stake in Titan to 3.72% in June 2021, from 3.97% in March 2021.

His wife's stake remained unchanged at 1.09%.

Meanwhile, LIC raised its stake in Titan to 3.96% in June quarter, from 3.91% in March quarter.

Titan share price has opened the day down by 0.9%.

Speaking of the country's largest watchmaker, here's an interesting data on Titan...

Even a tiny investment of Rs 1,000 per month in the stock of Titan, since 2002, would have led to mouth-watering returns.

Take a look at how the power of compounding has gone wild here...

Here's what Co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Tanushree Banerjee wrote about it in one of the editions of?Profit Hunter:

  • It's possible to accumulate a few crores by investing small amounts in good businesses. Especially when the business is in distress and comes with margin of safety in valuations.

    Like the stock in my latest special report - First Stock to Potentially Rs 7 Crore Long-term Wealth.

    Business headwinds and macro and regulatory issues have kept the stock out of favour in most of 2020.

    Given its pedigree, balance sheet strength and cash flows, the stock has a very high chance of rerating once the temporary clouds of uncertainty disperse.

    In fact, I believe that 2021 could be for this stock what 2004 was for Titan.
