    One Country One Road Tax

    Hi

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/driv...rders/?fref=nf

    This is something which will appeal to many/most/all of us - single road tax for the whole country, such that one can keep the car when transferred out of state... or buy a car which is registered in another state!

    Of course, it is anyone's guess when/if it will see the light of day... as there is nothing in it for the policy makers of the country.

    The Goal is good but not sure this will be achieved. Looking forward to have such situations.

    If it does, it will take a long time for sure.
    Mainly because of system lethargy, and road tax is a 'state' issue not central issue.

    But I am hopeful...
    Few years back, we could not think that mobile number portability would actually be possible.
    And now we have free in-coming while roaming... we would have thought it impossible 5 years back.

    We should try and strengthen the movement in whatever way we can.

    All of us for sure would like to have the option of buying from out-of-state, and sell too...

    A couple of years back GST was not a possibility, nobody thought the states would give away so much of revenue but well its closer to reality now.

    I really do hope that this happens atleast within this governments tenure as there were some rumblings about some such thing.

    The real reason this group came about is because of the unreasonable stand in KA where one needs to pay Life tax for the vehicle if the vehicle is used more than a month, the argument being that the folks should be able to pay yearly tax if they intend to stay for a short duration.

    I find it ironic that states which collect more tax usually end up having the worst infrastructure and pathetic roads.

    each state wont leave their control over vehicle registration and the revenue over road tax. may be central can bring a new system where all vehicles will be registered in a centralized system and the tax paid will be allocated to state govt end of the year. if the person plan to move other state then He can apply in the system and the tax money is adjusted and transferred to the intended state without hassle to the owner.

    anything can be possible but will the current scenario let us have such systems? At least each states should have annual tax system for outside vehicles so that they can pay annual tax even if its little higher.

    KA asking outside vehicle to pay life time tax by the same time NGT bans cars more than 10 year old. there isnt any clarity between all these.
