The fitment committee, comprising state and central officers, met last week and estimated that of the overall sum, Rs 22,000 crore will be lost if the rate is cut for auto parts alone. She listed out switch over to BS VI emission norms and registration fee related matter (which the government postponed later) as reasons for the auto sector slowdown.

Being in the automobile capital, Chennai, the minister when peppered with questions on the slowdown in the sector, said to be the worst in almost two decades, said, "It is true that the automobile sector in India had a good time till two years ago, there was definitely a good upward trajectory for automobile sector".

"Some studies do tell us, the mindsets of the millennials, who are now preferring not to commit an EMI towards buying an automobile instead would prefer to have Ola or Uber or take the metro", she said. Overall passenger auto sales dropped by a significant 31.57 per cent last month with 196,524 units sold compared to 287,198 units in August 2018. The percentage sale of two-wheelers is at a three-year low.
