In news from the automobile sector, India's automobile industry has urged the central government to reduce taxes before the festive season to counter the price increase on Bharat Stage-VI vehicles and support demand revival.

Representatives of leading automakers, including Toyota Kirloskar Motor India, Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra and Mahindra and Hero MotoCorp, said a cut in goods and services tax (GST) on automobiles will help the sector, which had been struggling for more than a year even before the covid-19 outbreak.

Yesterday, a report quoted Shekar Viswanathan, vice chairman, Toyota, saying that high taxes on cars keep companies at bay from building scale in India.

Later in a statement, Toyota said the auto industry has been requesting the government to support the industry through a viable tax structure. Toyota's cars, including Innova and Fortuner, attract 43% tax at the current GST rates.

The Union minister for environment, forest and climate change, had also suggested that the Centre was evaluating the possibility of GST cuts for two and three-wheelers to revive demand.

Earlier this month, auto stocks were in focus after Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said that a vehicle-scrappage policy was in its final stages of approval and could even be rolled out by month-end.

Reports stated that the vehicle scrappage policy aims to provide customers incentives to exchange old vehicles, which in turn will be used in recycling clusters - ultimately cutting costs of raw materials. It is also expected to boost demand for new vehicles in a Covid-hit economy.

Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) estimates vehicle sales to decline 25-45% in FY21.

During April-August, passenger car and utility vehicle wholesales fell 54% and 38%, respectively, year-on-year.

Speaking of the automobile sector, note that the sector has rebounded sharply from its March lows.

Have a look at the chart below:

Healthcare sector is at the top, followed by the automobile sector.

As per Apurva Sheth, the auto index entered the greed phase in September 2019 and will stay there until December 2021. This means there is still a lot of fuel left for auto stocks.

How automobile stocks perform in the coming months remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more updates from this space.

Moving on to stock specific news...
