Abstract

Signatory to the World Trade Organizations, India could no longer apply quantitative restrictions on the import of used cars. As the used cars are very inexpensive, they would pose a serious threat to the Indian car industry. To counteract the threat, the Government of India has built tariff and non-tariff barriers. In this study, an attempt has been made to understand the attitude of car buyers towards the import of used cars by using information system. Result reveals that one third of the respondents show interest in the imported used cars. Also, it is found that the demographic factors such as age, monthly household income and the number of earning members in the family have significant impact on the positive attitude towards the imported used cars.
