Don’t get China-made cars: Nitin Gadkari to Tesla
NEW DELHI: Road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday said that he had told US-based Tesla not to sell ‘Made in China’ ric cars in India. The minister said he has also urged the Elon Musk-led company to have its manufacturing unit in India and export from here. Gadkari’s comments reflect a caution on China following border tensions even as trade in several areas continues.
“Whatever support you (Tesla) want, will be provided by our go nment,” Gadkari said while addressing an event. Gadkari said he was holding dialogues with Tesla offi als regarding the company’s demand related to tax concessions.

Gadbadijee is absolutely . Tesla should not sell China made cars in India. Only "patriotic" MG Motors is being allowed to sell China made cars in India, in addition to random junk scoers straight from China with nice "Made for India" stickers.
Why people like you buy made in China ?If, you don't buy made in China, companies won't sell made in China.
Do not get China make cars - may be thousands in number - but get Mobile Phones from China numbering in millions. Wow !!
Why you buy made in China mobile phones ?
Mobile phones are manufactured in India
Tesla is strong supporter of Chinese, look at the investment made there, but they did not realized that Chinese will copy it overnight and sell under different brand, look at Iphone...it'sdesign is copied and sold before Apple could launch their products
India has taken the initiative. Here is to hope that others follow suit.
But will our markets be rid of Chinese goods?
Great man in Indian po itics.
Good stand taken by the minister/Indian go nment. Don't ask but make it a rule not to allow China made cars.
Tesla has to make a choice, Make in India or forget the India market. Lets see what they do!
Indian armed forces are surviving on spares and components imported from China, the huge volume of imports cant be brought in from any other country due to its cost and other countries will sell India the same stuff with tampered brands.

Training of our drivers to be improved before increasing the speed limit. Drivers should be given one hour training every day at the resting places for 2-3 years after issueing license.
在提高速度限制之前，我们的司机培训需要改进。在取得驾照后的2 ~ 3年内，每天要接受1个小时的训练。
Sour grape India at its best.Indians should ask themselves why Telsa did not choose to make cars in India, rather than ban ban ban. China can also ban all Indians
With the esting speed accidents are taking place. By increasing the speed limit more and more accidents will take place. Further, the esting cars ate not suitable for higher speed.
If you are crazy about Tesla cars,you can import them. Tesla is asking for exemption from import taxes for finished product which cannot be allowed because It is not fair on industries which are manufacturing cars in India.
that should be a policy decision, no request at all
No need of Tesla if it cannot make in India, PM'S vision is all over. Aatmanirbhar Bharat
