Vehicle ownership is a true indication of a families wealth   no comments

Posted at 3:48 am in auto accessories,cars,vehicle

Unlike most other investments or major purchases like a home which appreciate in value over a period of time, a vehicle is a depreciating asset, whose value decreases as the age increases. There are also many expenses related to owning a vehicle , like the annual insurance which has to be paid, and maintenance of the vehicle is also periodically required, and the car owner also has to arrange parking space.
In most cities and towns there is some form of public transport which can be availed of, so while owning one car may be convenient, owning multiple cars and other vehicles indicates that the family is very wealthy, has plenty of black and or white money
So instead of falsely accusing the broke domain investor who does not own any vehicle of having black money, tax evasion, trying to find non existent proof, the ntro, raw, cbi, google,tata employees should check the assets, income and expenses of the raw/cbi employees who actually purchased new vehicles like school dropout cbi employee gujju housewife naina R&AW employees , goan gsb fraud diploma holder siddhi mandrekar, goan bhandari sex worker sunaina chodan

Crude Oil prices, diesel and petrol engine car sales   no comments

Posted at 1:45 pm in cars,precision parts,vehicle

After reaching a low a few years ago, crude oil prices have also increased significantly in 2018, and are at their highest in the last few years. In addition to increasing the exchange rate of the Indian rupee and the us dollar, as India is a major importer of oil, one of the major effects of the increasing prices could be the sale of cars with a diesel and petrol engine.
Earlier many people were preferring to purchase a car with a diesel engine, though it was costlier, as the price of diesel was lower than petrol
When the prices of crude oil fell, there was hardly any difference in the price of petrol and diesel, so the sale of diesel engine vehicles decreased. It would be interesting to find whether the crude oil prices will continue to increase.
Compared to United States, Japan, electric cars are not widely used in India

Parking slot for car should be checked before purchasing a flat   no comments

Posted at 7:34 am in cars,vehicle

Most apartment complexes have a parking slot for flat owners, however the location of the parking slot is important . For some parking slots it is easy to remove the car , reverse it, while other parking slots may be very narrow , or have a narrow entrance.
So the car owner has to be very careful while removing or keeping the car from the parking slot
There is only a clearance of a few centimeters between the entrance of the parking slot and the car, especially if the car has mirrors.
So if the car owner is not alert, he is very likely to damage the car, causing scratches
Also parking and removing the car from the parking slot is very time consuming, reversing the car, the time taken may be 10 minutes or more. A person can take a bus and reach panaji, in less time.

Vehicle seating capacity   no comments

Posted at 3:06 am in cars,vehicle

One of the considerations while traveling long distances is the capacity of the vehicle, the number of people who can be seated in the vehicle.
If a person is invited to go to a place, they cannot get anyone along, as the trip organizer may not be able to accommodate another person.
Usually most vehicles have a seating capacity of 4 persons + 1 driver
So if an additional person is going on the trip, it can be difficult to accommodate,unless there are small children.
Sports Utility vehicles have a larger capacity and may be able to accommodate 7 persons + driver.
The rental charges for larger vehicles are also higher .

Auto Glass Repair Lewisville Texas

Children, celebrities and politicians are most likely to celebrate their birthday with large parties, where they invite their friends, relatives and business associates to enjoy themselves and also network. The success of these parties depends to a great extent on the number of invitees who attend these parties, so the party organizers do everything possible to ensure that those invited are able to attend the party easily and conveniently.One of the easiest way to maximize the attendance at the party is to arrange for one or more Birthday Party Party Bus to pick up the party attendees and drop them off safely after the party is over.

Children’s birthday parties
The requirement for a Birthday Party Party Bus for children is different from that required for an adult, yet more children are likely to require a party bus, as it saves their parents the effort of picking them up from and dropping them at the party location. Many parents have a very busy schedule and are unable to drop and pick up their child, so the child may be forced to miss the party. If the parent is assured that their child will be safely transported by the party organizers, the child is likely to be allowed to attend the party. Most party bus rental firms will make special arrangements for childrens birthday parties to ensure their safety.

Celebrities and politicians parties
The birthday parties of celebrities and politicians are usually high profile affairs with a large number of people from different backgrounds attending the party as it is a form of advertising for the celebrity. So the party organizers will arrange for a large number of party buses so that those invited to the party can conveniently attend the party and reach their home safely after the party is over. In some cases, party invitees may be from other towns and cities in the area, and so party bus rental firm will have to arrange for buses suitable for journeys over a long distance

Number of taxis in goa increases rapidly   no comments

Posted at 3:02 pm in cars,vehicle

According to media reports the number of taxis in goa has increased 20 times in the last 10 years and now the taxi drivers are finding it difficult to get any work. In 2007, the number of taxis in goa was less than 1000, however in 2017, there are more than 20000 registered taxis in Goa, as the government was very liberal in giving licenses as part of the self employment scheme.
Earlier taxi drivers were making two or three trips a day from the airport, However in 2017, at the airport, many taxi drivers have to wait for up to 6 hours to get a passenger. Also due to demonetization the number of tourists in goa is lower, as there is less black money floating around, and so there are fights between taxi drivers for passengers.
If the taxi rates were reasonable, more people would use taxis in goa.

Goa government refuses to reduce prices of petrol and diesel   no comments

Posted at 3:08 am in cars,vehicle

Goa has one of the highest number of vehicles per person anywhere in india and also one of the highest borrowings from the central government. So though the central government reduced the petrol and diesel prices in October 2017, the goa government refused to reduce the prices of the vehicle fuels and the chief minister was quoted in the media as saying that goa has the lowest prices of petrol and diesel in India.
It is a good move of the goa government as the tax collection in goa has reduced by 22% after GST according to media reports and the government requires the money for various expenses. If the prices of petrol and diesel are higher , young people will stop driving their vehicles rashly and without a valid reason for fun.
The RTO office in panaji, goa was burned down after a fire started in a nearby supermarket in October 2017.
Earlier the media reported that there was a slight reduction in the vehicle registrations on Dussehra 2017, compared to Dussehra 2016 at the RTO office, indicating that economic conditions in goa are not very good

Posted at 2:49 am in cars,vehicle

When the indian government increased the prices on petrol and diesel in September 2017, national television channels like times now protested against the move , however the indian government and minister said that those who own a vehicle like a car or scooter are usually wealthy enough to pay a small amount as additional taxes.
A car or other vehicle is fairly expensive, is a depreciating asset unlike real estate and there are other expenses related to owning a car like insurance and maintenance expenses which vehicle owners are aware of before purchasing the vehicle, A person who is not making much money will not purchase a vehicle, they will walk or use public transport to reduce expenses whenever possible.
So only those who are well off, can afford to purchase a car or other vehicle and can easily afford to pay the additional amount as taxes as the prices of diesel and petrol are also increasing internationally
