But elections, and the weeks or months it would take to form a government, will cost valuable time in shoring up national finances and implementing a landmark accord between Serbia and its former Kosovo province, brokered in April by the EU. That would likely delay the start of EU accession talks, penciled in for January.

Now, it is up to the customers to go for pre-determined tenure for payment of principle amount. Under this scheme, we are offering repayment tenure of 84 months, against the normal tenure of 36 months in normal finance cases, which allows a customer to pay merely Rs 999 per day, added Anand. Both BMW and Mercedes are providing EMI (equated monthly instalment) schemes known as Bullet and Balloon. Under Bullet finance, the customer has to pay a normal EMI for the 11 months of the year and a comparatively bigger amount at the year-end.
