Small Cars, Anti-AIDS And Anti-Cancer Drugs Would Be Cheaper

Reduced duties for a range of goods including small cars, anti-AIDS drugs, anti-cancer drugs would ensure easy access and increased affordability// . The following is one of the highlights of the annual budget 2006-07, announced by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram.

The prices of electronic items like DVD players and combo drives will also come down, as also those of instant food mixes, ice cream, condensed milk, aerated drinks and footwear. Prices of steel and plastic products are also expected to head south with the excise duty on these reduced.

Excise duty on petrol passenger cars up to 1,200 cc and diesel cars up to 1,500 cc has been reduced from 24 percent to 16 percent, making them cheaper by Rs.12,000-20,000.
