The western state of Rajasthan follows a distinct Motor Vehicles Taxation Act, which was implemented in 1951. Road tax is charged inclusive of the ex-showroom price of a car or bike.
Like everywhere else in India, the responsibility of levying and collecting taxes falls on the state government in Rajasthan.
Road taxes are levied to ensure that the state government can repair and build roads throughout the concerned state.
Also, such taxes can help authorities provide the necessary security to travellers on the roads.
Since Rajasthan road tax is levied by the state government, it tends to vary greatly from the taxation in the other states.
Regardless of the amount, every individual vehicle owner, along with businesses, need to bear these taxes after purchasing a vehicle and registering it at your local RTO.
How is Road Tax Calculated?
Depending on the state, road tax calculation can be based on one or more of the following factors –
● Age of the car/bike
● Fuel used by the concerned vehicle
● Number of seats
● Number of wheels
● Engine capacity of the two-wheeler or four-wheeler
● Purpose of usage
● Cost of the vehicles
RTO tax Rajasthan for two wheelers is based on the engine capacity and cost. Higher cubic capacity vehicles tend to draw increased taxes and vice versa. For four-wheelers, the tax rate is determined by the price point.
To understand the exact rates, you need to look at the different Rajasthan road tax slabs for the different types of vehicles.
