Withdrawal of extended excise duty concessions by the end of last year has put many leading carmakers in the country in a tiff, owing to which, almost all leading car-makers in the country have passed on the additional cost to customers. Country's leading car-maker Maruti Suzuki has also been affected with this new move and has hiked up the prices of its trims by about Rs. 32,000. Car buyers may expect an increase in price by about 4%.
