Following the rollout of GST, we have decided to pass on the entire benefit to our customers. We are offering a price reduction of up to 12 percent ranging between Rs 3,300 and Rs 2,17,000, depending on the model and variant," Tata Motors President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Mayank Pareek said in a statement.

The company "whole-heartedly" welcomes the initiative by the Union government for introducing GST and bringing in a uniform tax across the country, he added.
