The govt. is full of morons of every country, India's situation is worst. Where there is already 100% more taxes imposed on cars than western countries, was there any need to put further taxes? US/Europe level of standard taxation and we would be having premium Compact sedan like Cruze under Rs. 800000. It was understandable during 90's when govt was struggling with foreign exchange reserve, today it's a different story. Instead of passing any tax benefits to the people, impose further tax, the above reason is like spitting on face and telling, hey!! we are the Boss here... I have no idea why people are under the impression that we are in a Democratic country. We may not exactly know who will be the next PM but we surely know among 2-3 options. This is dictatorship as it will continue to be like this forever down the line. Ditto as in the time of Emperors, ruler-ship is passed onto later generations albeit in a smart way. I hate the word diplomacy, it's like kicking you and getting a smile in response. Grandfather-Father-Father's son-Son's wife-Wife's son.... :A. It is happening since last 70 yrs in the name of democracy will be exactly same people after 70 yrs. Where is democracy when we don't have any voice in making foreign policy, business strategies or even the lamp-post in your own street? Did anyone ask you before hiking petrol, FDI, visiting other countries for business relations etc etc? Forget about your view, were you ever shown a media coverage what exactly discussed in conference halls? A DUMB person is biggest danger for himself than a WEAK. Weak knows that he is weak but "dumb will never agree that he is a dumb and hence reason for his demise". This is Dictatorship albeit in a diplomatic way. It is done in bits and pieces which goes UN-noticed but when you join the pieces, it simply states "BIG DADDY HERE".
