The Indian government levies a charge on the purchase of every new vehicle, known as road tax. Uttarakhand road tax was enacted back in 2019 when the state decided to adopt the Motor Vehicles Act.
Road tax is mainly charged to maintain the infrastructure of Indian roadways. Additionally, the state government utilises this tax to recover funds spent on deploying recovery and safety services on Indian roads.
In Uttarakhand, road tax is levied both on commercial and private vehicles regardless of their sizes. Therefore, every citizen who purchases a motorised vehicle must pay a road tax to ply the vehicle.
One must pay the road tax during his vehicle registration with Uttarakhand RTO or Regional Transport Office.
