The majority of the proceeds go to governments at both state and central levels through a wide range of tax components. For example, a vehicle is taxed with two different components under the GST ambit. The tax incidence includes GST at 28 per cent and GST compensation cess at 22 per cent. For the Toyota Fortuner, the amount is more than 5 lakh and 7 lakh respectively. The on-road price of a car includes components such as registration, road tax, green cess for the diesel models and fast tag. All this money goes to the government coffer.

The manufacturer's margin, dealer's commission and government tax on vehicles depend on the vehicle's sticker price and its segment as we. Due to this, the luxury car sales result in more margin for OEMs and more commission for dealers, while the tax incidence on the luxury vehicles too is significantly higher.
