Indian official denies tax exemption for  Elon Musk's Tesla

Indian authorities are not considering a duty waiver for Tesla contrary to some reports

Tesla's plans for India had previously stalled due to the country's refusal to lower import taxes on its electric vehicles, which can be as high as 100%

Despite the duty waiver denial, India is still keen for Tesla to manufacture vehicles domestically.

Elon Musk recently suggested a significant investment in the country might be announced soon.
