Umm, not sure of this. I recently bought an i10 in Bangalore and Road Tax was paid on the ex showroom price, net of discounts. Even items like loyalty bonus and the additional discounts I extracted through some haggling were excluded from the amount on which road tax was paid. Looks like there is a high level of discretion on this !

I think I mentioned this elsewhere but VW Palace cross in Bangalore reduced the ex-showroom price to 9.98L so that road tax was calculated on 9.98L and not on 10.13L. Anything above 9.99 means the road tax goes by 4% in KA so that's a good 40K saving.

Other dealer was offering 40K higher price and giving some discount on that.

The reason I ask is while buying my vehicle I was told that it varies from RTO in different states as each one has its own dictates.
Motor Vehicles Act or Central Motor Vehicles Act is what you should be looking for and most RTO authorities and many dealers have these in stock.

The tax amount , at least in Karnataka , as per rules, is on the final price paid by the customer.

The problem is that most RTOs insist on computing on the 'listed' price . The ARTOs have their own revenue targets and promotions to meet and they conveniently choose to flout the rules, assuming that they're aware of them fully.The lower level clerks simply follow the diktats of their seniors.

The RTOs know that most customers wouldn't know the rules , and even if they knew, get into an argument or take resort to legal measures.

Has anyone got there car registered in Delhi on the discounted price? I have to get my 3 series registered and will save some money if this is possible. Its apparently possible in neighboring Gurgaon.
