Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) has revised prices of its vehicles pursuant to the implementation of GST, with immediate effect. The prices of vehicles for end-customers on large UVs and SUVs have been reduced by an average of 6.9%, while those that come under small car segment have been reduced by an average of 1.4%.
Similarly, end-customer prices have been reduced by an average of 1.1% for small commercial vehicles and 0.5% for LCVs and HCVs. The price changes to end-customers will vary across states or even cities within a state, due to the differing levels of pre-GST local taxes.
The effect of the imposition of GST for tractors, which were not levied an excise duty, should be neutral given the input tax credits that would be available to OEMs. Hence there will be no change for end-customer prices for tractors.
M&M is the flagship company of the Mahindra Group, a multinational conglomerate based in Mumbai, India. Amongst the various business interests of its parent group, the company is mainly involved in the automobile manufacturing. It is one of the leading auto companies of India.
