At least the total VAT collected data would be available in the Karnataka State Budget documents. Will check once am at home. Now on mobile.

Is this what you are looking for, or something else?

An excellent start. If nothing else comes out of this, at least the public will become more aware of the cascading taxes imposed on us.

Time was when road tax was just that. You paid it monthly. quarterly or annually where ever you drove the car.

Will any judgement on this by the Honorable Karnataka High Court be effective on other states too? TN too charges road tax on the cost of the vehicle which loosely translates to the ex showroom price. Can any order passed by the Honorable Karnataka High Court be used as a means for fighting against this practice in TN too?

I think the judgement will not have automatic applicability in other States (since the current petition is specific to the Karnataka MV Act), but it will surely have a persuasive value and based on this judgement other States might also take up the issue.

Default Road tax in Kerala ; Should road tax be based on vehicle value?

In the earlier pages of this thread, I came to read that KA is the only place where road tax is calculated on ex-showroom price (tax on tax case) and not on ex-factory or before state VAT prices. However, for all our vehicles in Kerala, the road tax was indeed calculated on the invoice value of the vehicle - effectively the ex-showroom price.

For an intermediate period, in one of the KL state budgets (2014 or 2015, I can't recall nor find the correct document), it was changed that the road tax would be calculated on the amount without the state VAT component. However there was soon a circular which reversed this, i.e to continue charging road tax on the ex-showroom price of the vehicle itself. The circular had also clarified that discounts offered by the dealer will not be factored into LTT calculation. I will get back to this thread once I find these documentations again. I had to read through all these while trying to understand the cost of re-registration LTT for our Superb (MH to KL).

Secondly coming to the question on what basis road tax should be calculated on: Ideally a road tax is intended for the upkeep of the roads and general traffic infrastructure. Hence in my opinion it should not be based on the value of the vehicle. The tax component based on value of vehicle is already included in the central excise duties, Octroi and state VAT.

Road tax rather should be based on weight of the vehicle, fuel type/emissions as these directly influence the cost of upkeep / development of traffic infrastructure as well as environment/public health. And why should it be mandatory that one has to pay LTT, why not annual road taxes? I came to be familiar with such practice of road taxes here in the Netherlands and I find them to be more logical. Here it is a quarterly road tax, based on vehicle weight primarily & fuel type (diesel vs petrol vs hybrid vs pure electric etc). So one would be paying less road tax for a BMW 2.0L diesel than a Scropio 2.2L, and logically so, as the heavier and less efficient Scorpio cost the exchequer more towards upkeep of roads.

So, IMHO, if road taxes are being calculated and levied based on the value of a vehicle, it is not really a 'road' tax alone anymore. If the objective is also for making vehicle affordable to everyone across the income strata, there should be differential VAT component based on ex-factory price of the car (incentives here based on size, efficiency and emissions are also welcome), than different road taxation based on value of the car (which invariably is compounding on excise duties/octroi/state VAT etc).

And last but not the least, good luck and all the best wishes to you Sir Waseem.
