After ban­ning the im­port of ve­hi­cle for al­most two years, from yes­ter­day the ban was lifted. Ac­cord­ing to the no­ti­fi­ca­tion is­sued by the Depart­ment of Trade un­der the Min­istry of Eco­nomic Af­fairs, the re­stric­tion on im­port of ve­hi­cle is be­ing lifted with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

So the ve­hi­cle deal­ers in the coun­try have started re­ceiv­ing the order and en­quir­ing about the prices of the ve­hi­cle from the cus­tomer who wanted to pur­chase the new car.

Till yes­ter­day, Bhutan Hyundai mo­tor re­ceived order for twelve num­bers of ve­hi­cles after the tax re­vi­sion was for­mally an­nounced, ac­cord­ing to the Sales Ex­ec­u­tive Ms. Sonam Pel­don of Bhutan Hyundai Mo­tor.

To­day, Bhutan Hyundai mo­tor com­pany, they deal with In­dian made ve­hi­cle and also from Korean made.

The In­dian made ve­hi­cles in­cludes Eon, I10, grand I10 and Santro cars. While, the Korean made cars are Santafee, Tuc­son, Ac­cent, Veloster and H1 car.

Ms. Sonam Pel­don said that while re­ceiv­ing the order they are ask­ing the cus­tomers to de­posit an ad­vance of Nu. 2 lakhs at the time of plac­ing the order and rest at the time of de­liv­ery of the ve­hi­cle. The de­liv­ery sched­ule for the In­dian made ve­hi­cles are two months and it will take around eight months to de­liver the Korean made cars.

The other ve­hi­cles deal­ers in­clud­ing the State Trad­ing Cor­po­ra­tion of Bhutan Lim­ited could not be con­tacted for their com­ments.
