With the impending price increase of vehicles and the upcoming of BS-VI norms deadline, "It is your (industry's) demand that there should be a reduction in tax of petrol and diesel vehicles. Your suggestions are good. I will take your message to the finance minister," Gadkari said at annual SIAM convention here.
