One interesting observation: "Motor cabs having cubic capacity below 1500cc and having purchase price value upto rupees 20 lakh", tax is 6% against a regular tax of 15%.

So if you buy a Jeep Compass 1.4 AT (O) at 19.4L ex, you can save a cool 1.75L on road tax if you register it as a motor cab.

Of course you will have to live with the yellow board and the frown on people's faces.
