  • Road Tax in Maharashtra

    Maharashtra, the state (Capital City: Mumbai) of big celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi and boasting of the finest Indian wines has its own interspersing network of roads and pathways that connect its regions effectively. It boasts of the best cities for lifestyle in India, as well as having a well maintained traffic system. But then again, it is one of the busiest states concerning motor vehicle population too. Cities like Mumbai and Nagpur have a vehicle count that is steadily on the rise. The cost of a new vehicle in Maharashtra is determined after adding a lifetime road tax on the showroom price, with the road tax being used to improve the roads and infrastructure facility in the state. The current road tax in Maharashtra falls under the purview of the state’s Motor Vehicles Taxation Act of 1988 (latest amendment of 2001).

    Calculating the Road Tax in Maharashtra:

    Age of a vehicle, make and manufacturer, fuel type, length and width of vehicle, engine capacity, purpose (personal or commercial use), place of manufacture and many other factors come into play when the payable road tax in Maharashtra is calculated. It’s worthwhile to mention that seating capacity and number of wheels of a vehicle are also used to calculate road tax. The transport department levies a road tax equivalent to a certain percentage of the original vehicle cost, ensuring that taxation is standard across different vehicle categories.

    Taxation on Vehicle Categories:

    The Motor Vehicles Act of 1988 (2001) specifically mentions certain schedules that provide the taxation amounts of categories of vehicles. The schedules of taxation as per the recent amendment of 2001 are mentioned below.
