  • Market Watch: Hemang Jani Motilal Oswal Fin Services on HeroMotoCorp

    “Because of the entire EV disruption and because the demand environment has not been good, some of the two-wheelers had gone through a lot of correction and now we are seeing a technical pullback. Our view on two-wheelers is very clear that these companies will have a combination of demand challenges as well as a possible disruption because of EV. So it makes sense to focus on passenger vehicles or a CV player like Ashok Leyland or a pure EV focused player like Tata Motors rather than trying to get into the two-wheeler space.”

  • Real Estate will require support to chart a sustained recovery: Shishir Baijal - Chairman, Managing Director, Knight Frank India

    The real estate sector was adversely impacted by the onslaught of the pandemic.  Improved sense of homeownership and some state government incentives have rekindled demand.  However, the prolonged pandemic implies that the sector will require support to chart a sustained recovery.

    Currently, there is a GST of 5% on under-construction residential units and 1% on affordable housing, but without Input Tax Credit (ITC). No GST is charged on completed units. The GST on cement and steel is 28% and 18% respectively and the tax outgo has spiked along with the rise in these commodity prices.

    As the developers cannot claim tax credits for GST paid on input items, this amount gets added to the construction cost and leads to higher apartment prices for homebuyers. Further, it also negates the purpose of GST which was to remove cascading impact of taxes. If ITC were allowed, the tax savings will be substantial and allow developers the room to lower prices. 

    The Government can use this budget session to assuage this concern and assure for restoration of ITC in the upcoming GST council meet. The government should also look at reducing the GST rate on cement to give a boost to construction activity in the economy.
