Dieselisation of Indian Auto Industry

Govt is thinking in terms of taking the easy way out - increase excise duties on diesel cars.

Simple choice, may be, but surely not the best.

The obvious choice is to increase the diesel price, by say Re.1. But, the political will needed seem to be missing to make such crucial decisions.

Latest reports say, diesel fumes may cause cancer. Some may say, ' no conclusive evidence'. But, if we wait for that, it may be too late. Just like impact of climate change !!

With the fast changing developments at Delhi's political circles, this particular decision may be slightly delayed.

But this is an opportunity for the govt to show some guts & take the correct decision.

We need to stop this dieselisation of our auto Industry !
