Ambassador’s reign in Kolkata comes to an end

Unlike the Fiat Padminis in Mumbai, the Ambassadors are not saying adieu. They are simply not kings of the road anymore. With the West Bengal government  recently allowing other passenger cars that seat upto five people as cabs, Ambassador has lost its dominant position as the ‘taxi of Kolkata’. According to the vice-chairman of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA), Sabyasachi Bagchi, the state government has decided to open the market to more ‘technologically advanced vehicles’.

This move is a much-awaited one for many other players in the sector such as Maruti and Tata. In fact, Tata Motors launched a version of its Indigo in July at Rs. 4.97 lakh (instead of Rs 5 lakh) specifically for Kolkata. Despite this attractive offer, Tata had not been able to make a dent in this market until now, as taxis other than Ambassadors are generally looked at with distrust in the city of joy. Now any car with an engine capacity of 1,050-1,150 cc can seek registration as a taxi in the state.

The state government has proposed to extend an incentive of Rs 25000 to buyers of new taxis, this gives an additional push in the direction of the others waiting in line to join the taxi bandwagon of Kolkata. Even lobby groups are accepting of this new move, with the general secretary of Bengal Taxi Association, Bimal Kumar Guha voicing appreciation for the choices the would-be taxi owners will receive.

Nostalgia is associated to Ambassadors, toughness is synonymous with it. Before the sadness of this car disappearing from the roads engulfs us, we must ask ourselves, how has a car without bucket seats, inadequate safety measures, and crawling speed lasted so long in our markets and on our roads? Let us pave the way for the Maruti Dzires and Tata Indigos to take over the roads of Kolkata. They are yours too now.
