Taxes in Nagaland for all types of vehicles are the lowest in India. Lower than Meghalaya also, where we are paying 3000/- for the registration of a private vehicle, 1500/- for a 2 wheeler and 5000/- for a commercial vehicle, irerespective of the cost of the vehicle.

For registration in Nagaland, the company only needs to have a registered office in the state. I know of a few people who have an office in the state and they their address is the address of more than 300 companies and individuals. This is the legal way for duping the govt. of taxes.

Just drove back to Hyderabad on NH9 and the number of trucks on this highway is just

Honk, Honk, Honk, Flash, Flash, & Flash! Because he will be trying to overtake one at 43kmph while the other is at 41kmph! Happened to see this just few hours back and I wish I could replicate the stunt from Transporter 3!

Don't brake and even if you have to, keep a watch on the RVM and accelerate!

One Theory is that that is the only State which does not require physical production of vehicle for Registration as it does not have the roads to accommodate them.

In addition to what SumitB said, another major benefit (don't know to whom) NL has a very lax RTO which is why lot of imported dubious vehicles get registered in NL.

NH9 Hyderabad to Vijayawada is an absolute mess. Too many trucks and too many volvo's. The road definitely needs four laning.

One thing that I learned through my years of highway driving is that the majority of the truck drivers are nice and will give you way if there is space. But at the same time one should be careful of the trucks with no load as they are generally driven very rashly

Once stuck for 3 Hours in a Jam near Suryapet, I was surprised how one road can have infinite trucks and Trucks. After seeing so many trucks coming one by one from the opposite side for hours, you feel giddy.

Some of the pictures I posted are on that stretch.




The NH9 will be very difficult to widen as there are vested interests from the local political angle along side the highway. No one wants to cede in space at all.

True about the NL thing.

And yes I too believe 'truck drivers are nice and will give you way if there is space'. They must have seen so many mishaps in their life that that can understand the value of casualty more than anybody else.

Nice photoblog you have here.

One thing I observe is that on highways if there is a jam most of the truck guys park in a line and it is the bus and car guys who try and jump queue and create much more mess. Double lane (and even triple lane) from both directions creates a further bottle neck even when the original cause of jam is removed!

Studying you pictures shows love and affection showered on the trucks by their drivers.

Have not clicked pictures yet but note to self have camera ready on the road.

Yeah, better not follow them, else it would be 'sh**stream' instead of 'slipstream'

Sales tax is ridiculously low in Nagaland. That's why people buy it officially from there.
Nice thread. Some brilliantly hilarious shots. I think that Bengali caption "ager moto aar sukh nei" needs a translation for the benefit of non-Bengalis, because that's the main point of the picture.
Some of the pics are a bit repeatitive.
