In a surprise move, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led (BJP) Haryana government today lowered road tax rates on vehicles used for both professional and personal purpose.
Following a state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, the government also decided to implement a simplified taxation structure to generate reliable database and save public from harassment and problems of red tapism.
According to the revised road tax structure, cars priced up to Rs 6 lakh will be taxed at rate of 5% , whereas cars priced over Rs 20 lakh will be taxed at 10%. Hence, those who wish to purchase cars up to Rs 6 lakh are likely to benefit most.
Similarly, in case of two-wheelers above the value of Rs 2 lakh, tax at the rate of 8 per cent of the value of the vehicle would be charged.
