The exact amount of green tax for two-wheelers and other categories of vehicles can differ based on your state of residence.
The government has decreed commercial vehicle owners to pay green tax at the rate of 10-25% of their road tax liabilities. For instance, if their road tax is ₹6000, the maximum green tax applicable would be ₹1500.
On the other hand, private vehicles may need to bear green tax at a rate of up to 50% of their road tax liabilities. For example, if the road tax charged is ₹6000, the green tax can be as high as ₹3000.
The exact rate at which green tax is charged depends on the pollution level of your residential city. Therefore, residents of cities, such as New Delhi and Patna will likely have to bear the highest green tax.
