  1. GST Council has proposed a revision in tax slabs for motor vehicles. Now, all cars were taxed at base rate of 28% and levied an additional cess based on factors like dimensions, engine size and ground clearance. The cess slabs of 25%. If this slab is passed, then the maximum rate at which cars could be tax increase from 43% to 53%. Luxury cars will be taxed under the newly proposed highest slab. The GST on luxury cars will be set 53% of the existing 43%. The implementation of GST has some good news for new car buyers.
