US president Donald Trump thinks that India's import duty of 50 percent on completely built foreign bikes is too high. In the US, he claims there is zero tax on imports, and that India is taking advantage of that.
Only the muslim indians are against trump, but hindu indians are slaves to trump.....even if trump wants to destroy india, hindus will support trump cuz they are hopeless and eager for that tiny bit of modernity they never see themselves reaching (except by selling out to another culture like the US)
make your product economic and we will reduce the taxes. if you will over price the product we will make it double. that is all business. harley devidson is costlier and it is not manufacturing locally here. so we don't get any taxes. so we imposed taxes in order to make profit. if you want to impose heavy duty do it fast we don't care because what we sell in usa is not a considerable amount.
America cannot match up to the Consumer base at home compared to that of INDIA. Pricing is the main factor why Harley will not succeed as Indians cannot afford a price tag which is beyond the reach of Middle & Lower ranks of the Indian Market which is the Vibrant consumer base.
Harley represents America and Americans. Trump represents America and Americans..
India attaches 100% tax on a bike coming from the US. Why wouldn't the US do the same.??
And personally I owned 4 Royal Enfields and got tired of walking so I stopped buying them.
I hope Trump fixes a 200% tax on that Indian shit.
indians are most delusional people in the whole world. from my personal experience i know how hard it is to export in india. They will try anything to stop you to export in their country but whenever it comes to import from india you will see the total different scenario! WTO should ban india from international trade. Let them make their own goods for themselves and we also wont buy their product. Let them live in their own paradise!
Everything is charged "duty" and taxes in India. This is from the License Raj days. When even Citizen watches were charged 100% duty to protect HMT watches. Even today every item is duty-ied heavily. Why do you think a Rolls Royce Phantom costs 550.000 US dollars in USA and 1,360,000 in India.
Indians were so happy when the US ditched Pakistan for India .... that made many Pakistanis happy as well !!! Looks like the US is up to its old tricks!! Give a little, expect a lot & then complain lie & threaten!!!
eddieisfiction Yes, if America wants to retain the following:
1.) US dollar to remain the reserve currency of the World.
2.) Ability to fund both a warfare and welfare state.
3.) Keep inflation and interest rates in the US low.
US can definitely impose tariffs, every country is free to do what it likes ESPECIALLY THE USA, just be prepared for the consequences.
Well, he's right isn't he? Taxes are far too high. This is quite strange considering we have a (broadly) conservative government, who are interested in increasing taxes. Taxation, Recirculation, accumulation, liquidation, currency crash, and taxation again. This is not a governmental issue alone (ie, every single government since 1947 has been making the same mistake over and over again), rather one of economic common sense. GST may have been a step in the right direction, but the import/export duty is still too high. Consider this, developed countries develop primarily due low logistical overhead, if fuel alone is so heavily taxed, how is that possible? We should focus on infrastructure and public transport.
Why are these Indian liberal nutjobs spending so much time debunking Trump? English media in India regurgitate #fakenews NY Times and WaPo all day. No mind of their own. Real dumbs asses! Even PM Modi hates them!
Come on buddy. You're not fooling anyone. We all know you're a low class, poor, pathetic white guy who's sad that Indians are taking over America so you had to resort to sucking and riding Trump's dick even though Trump doesn't give a FUCK about you
Dumb Fuck I didn't say that. I can see your tiny white brain struggle with your mental gymnastics from here.
You're probably didn't even go to college. You probably make less than 50,000 a year.
It's a miracle you haven't overdosed on opioids yet.
Don't take on people you can't handle bitch
What's is the point, he wants to increase sales of Harley Davidson motorcycle in India and I am interested in buying. I think any more than 10% duty on any thing is ridiculous and in the end it's the customer who pays the duty not any politician or country.
gaming singh India exports more to the US than vice versa. Do you really want the US to add tariffs to your goods in return? That would not work in your favor if that happened. You are advocating for trade war when you have tariffs
Yes but that money goes to America supporting american workers but if harley manufactured in india that would creat jobs in india.
So govt wants us not to choose imported things over Indian manufactured goods and want harley to come manufacture in india..
KTM is also an exporter and so is BMW which exports the g310r
And about the emission norms you talk of at 3:28 they did not exist in India and secondly India has its own emission laws not the Euro standards although the BS are copied from the Euro specs
You guys don't know what you are talking about and yet you just post videos to rant about it, and at 3:40 when you talk about why we impose duties wtf do you even know why it is there you completely fuck up the facts give wrong information about everything and complain and blame the American president about it F you
Too much custom duty, on every imported product,, but also in india, many company makes same type of product but in a duplicate manner, means if any food product contains a tag of 25 % vitamine, they actually add only 5 %,, and our govt says make in andia, its ok but quantity but not of quality... Every time their is politics in goods also, and hike in every product but no development...
I challenge you to name one bike from hd which didn’t meet norms and was allowed to be sold in India (and got registered for use on road) , why the hell should people shed their hard earned money to money sucking government if we want to buy n use a product of our choice?
I ordered 10 ics weighing less than 100 grams and costing 3000rs, can u believe i had to pay 2750 rs just on taxes and custom duties?
Governments are to serve people of a country and not be served by the people of the country.
I believe the sole reason behind Trumps outburst is that he wants India to do things according him like many other countries do (like India use to do) but India is doing things in its own way. This pissed him off, so this is his an attempt to put pressure on PM by making fun of him. But he will fail for sure.
@master blaster BTW the platform you are using now to post this comment is also an American brand probably everything that u use in not all made in India.
Coming to the point... People with thoughts like you always create hatrade comments and bring negative thoughts for few... But not everyone are like you. I'm an Indian. Being Indian I feel proud that a person at his level is desperately want to sell his product in India. We don't see the sales or promotions of our products done by our PM or President...
Indian Government's logic of putting duties, is that it will force foreign companies to manufacture in India and thus generate jobs for the poor. They also insist on foreign companies having joint-ventures with Indian companies to help industrialists. The middle-class is ignored. We have to buy sub-standard products from substandard Indian companies in the name of creating jobs. The Indian middle class is the most abused and over-taxed middle-class in the world. Indian politicians, instead of creating a more business-friendly environment, which will help everyone, want to take short-cuts. We have a corrupt bureaucracy, over-burdened legal system and dismal infrastructure. Fix this three things and Indians will be able to complete with anyone. Short-cuts like tariffs will eventually hurt us (our manufacturing sector lags way behind most Asian countries). Wait till Trump starts targeting our IT and Service sector. Then it will be a double-whammy for the middle-class.
Though import duties in India is for protecting the Indian businesses but as a customer i feel very bad when i have to pay almost double the price for every product that we Indians buy... take all the electronics for examples.. they cost almost double in India.. i recently bought a dell XPS 13 for 88k and the same was available in US for 46K.. all the cars cost more than double here.. the cost of phones ia really high.. Indias per capita income is very low and the cost of all goods be it electronics apparels cars cost much higher in india.. whereas in US its quite opposite.. their per capita income is among the highest and the goods there are much cheaper.. unless we indians dont have access to the latest technology how are we suppose to progress? The Indian companies havent done much.. TATA makes the worst cars ever.. their Nano was a complete fail.. nobody wants to buy a Tata car... inpspite of government supporting our indian companies by imposing such high duties the Indian companies havent been able to do much and it is the end customer who bears the burden of tax and ends up paying a huge price.
Arik Stoops idk why ppl feel like india need to justify its policies.
Did anyone ask american to justify them electing an orangutan into the whitehouse ?
And harley assemble its motorcycles in india to reduce that import fee. Almost all the harley motorcycles sold in india are assembled in india.
Harley isn’t complaining neither are its customers in india ... trump is just being a fool
Very poor nd biased report. Business has terms. It is like give nd take. If u dont agree, dont do business. Trump is doing what is good for his country. U may dislike his way of business. India should do what is good for herself.
These channels r deliberately created to use emotions of indians. Which i think is a part of propaganda.
Mr. Whom ever you are , I do not who you are but please let it be known to all of us there is difference between "you and me" By your words you want to justify that Royal Enfield meets euro 3 norms and there for it is untaxable . Hope fully your words justify what's your knowledge . Justifying on behalf of others weakness doesn't proove you as more powerful . Hope you would try to understand .
eddieisfiction go ahead do whatever you govt. want we don't care. we can't give special treatment to any country. we know USA is dictating country. and i think you didn't watched this video carefully. every country should respect the law of other country. you bike didn't meet the emission requirement of our country but we still considering it for you. and if same thing happend with our bike you will ban it immediately.
eddieisfiction, because you overpriced your product here. for example apple in USA is cheaper then what we pay here in india. one more thing in order to promote local manufacturing and to reduce the cost of product to make it available for people. it is necessary. every country follow the same rule.
if we don't support local manufacturing inflation rate will become high. hope you understand
Enfield is bullshitting on the numbers it sells in US. I am an indian but i totally support Trump's views. Stop this crazy import duties which only benefits indian corporates and doesnt benefits consumers. If we are weak manufacturers then we have no right to be there in open markets. Let the strongest survive. Protectionist policy weakens a nation.
A 100% tax is still a daylight robbery man. Who pays that tax on Harley Davidson bikes, its either a hard working bike enthusiast or his father. Exast is the problem look at your corporation buses and lorries they emit tonnes and tonnes of black smokes.
Gaurav if you want to help India please go ahead and give ur entire wealth. 50% tax is applied in a dictatorship. So u sell anything u ll get 50₹ and govt gets 50₹. In some cases our govt is worse than a dictatorship accept it or disagree it. People life can never ever be improved by taxing, my life is only when make something, or work, learn something new. Anyways thanks for your time n effort, I appreciate it. I'm just a random guy. Our banking system is horrible.
The rate of interest when u deposit is probably 6-8% max. The rate of interest when you borrow is 13-16% per annum, but taxing 28% to 100% per transaction is wrong. We might as well whack the rich and make them poor. By the way you don't have to be rich to buy HD bikes some of my friend's friends have it, they're just normal people like you n me. Peace.
Where do you stop taxing, ripping rich won't make poor better. We tried it b4 1990. What we need is more production, better banks that help middle income and lower income group people. Is govt effecient. Are they going to do that for us. At the end of the day govt is going to do whatever it wants to do.
Daddy Government We have lower import duties on CPUs which are mostly prepared by Intel and AMD bcz they help in Making Computer which are essential for Country and it's people. All these luxury Items should be taxed that much high.
we are not ripping off any country ...
we need our rich Indians to pay more taxes ... that's it ...
we are developing country with lot of challenges we need taxes so that we can feed our hungry educate poor children. trying control our end of global warming.
do you think that is ripping off American companies.
please check what amazon is doing by moving there packaging and head office to several states just for avoiding taxes and that is some rich business. think who is robbing off Americans ... check this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bl19RoR7lc
And custom tax is so damn high in India
Sometime it goes up to freaking 41%.
So if i purchase a machine that don't manufacture in India. And that cost around lets say 10 lakh i have custom charges of around 4 lakh something.
Why it is so high. I am not bring machines in bulk or neither i will use in commercial business.
Why so high. Anyone....
gaming singh gaming singh i know taxes are suppose to use for our good only. I am fully aware of what you said . And i am all down to pay any sort of tax. My problem here is the high amount of tax.
You may be cool with suffering till things get well. Certainly i am not. Because i know India is a big country and it does take long time to implement something. So Coughing up little bit cash will be coughing up lots of cash.
abhijit das it took apple a while to come.. if apple was able to sell products at the price they like and there weren’t any import duties it sure would’ve make a lot of its customers happy but they wouldnt have the need to start manufacturing in india ...
these things take time so till then ppl like us suffer, we cough up extra cash..
U see coughing up extra cash isnt the problem for an individual the problem is as I originally said when u dont see that money being put to good use.
Govt. is not using the taxpayers money on giving taxpayer facilities like improving public transportation, heath, education etc etc..so the money we paid feels like going to waste.
What i am trying to say is import duties are necessary(in case of india)so dont ask govt. to reduce them(as now not only we have apple selling their products at original prices but we also created jobs)that wouldnt be good in a longer run, ask govt. to use the money, the extra money we paid be used on us in various form of facility.
gaming singh i know bout apple. Starting to manufacture their product.
And i know How India is trying to build indigenous product and trying to bring foreign manufacturer to manufacture product here in Indian. And if this happen price cut is definitely going happen. Things are going to get cheaper. But it not happening now. Like you said this are targeting business. But individual like you and me have to pay custom taxes up to 41%. This should lower for individual importer.
abhijit das and since when purchasing ‘made in India ‘ tagged products is patriotism? How is that even patriotic?? This BJP and its blind supporters have reduced the whole definition of patriotism to such a low level... its simply disgusting especially for someone with military background.. bloody civilians, they save a cow and say they r patriots.
Its just so we can boost our own industry which would result in creating jobs and make country more self reliant. Thats why countries put on heavy import duties. It is one of the methods which is used to boost up industry when u have a lot of workforce and a place to set up industry
If u dont have a huge workforce you dont use this method like arab nations who dont have such import duties, they use other methods to develop their country. Pakistan use this method to generate revenue as they dont have suitable conditions to setup industry so they have like 100%+ import duties on cars and other items.
Yes it sucks to pay that extra cash.
But in india’s case its not to target individuals but to target giant business houses and reduce our dependence on other countries.
Apple is a good example of it they finally will be manufacturing part assembling their products in india, apple get to increase its customers by not making them pay import fee(reducing the price)and india gets an industry which will create jobs.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
