The RTO calcluates the lifetime tax according the invoice value of the new car at the point of sale. Not on the IDV value of the car.
For out of state cars or for re-registration, the tax is calucated based on certain parameters like age of the car and it's associated value which is prescribed in the motor vehicles act of Karnataka.

Please refer the following document which is available in the RTO website for calculating the road tax. This was amended in 2010 and the new taxation policy is given below.

I am also aware of this taxation policy but this method of taxation for out of state cars is itself a questionable one, this is what we are trying to highlight that it is not in the interest of common man.

Do you really think the government does anything in the interest of the common man?
But sadly this is the state of affairs in our state.

Recently one of my colleagues got his KL registered santro registered in Karnataka. He had to shell out close to 35000/- for his car.

Mindgrinder,
It will be for example,
Consider ex-showroom price is 8 lakhs,
For a new car tax rate of 14% will apply, which will be Rs.112000,
Your car is more than 2 years old, so as per the table given here the percentage of life time tax levied will be 87% of Rs.112000.
This will be equal to Rs.97440,
An additional cess of 1.4% will be levied on this amount,

So total cost of registering your old vehicle in Karnataka should be about Rs.99000/-

Thanks for posting this.
Makes me laugh at the government for such a thoughtless classification of vehicle depreciated values and tax thereof.
Imagine this hypothetical example:

15 years back, a Maruti esteem may have cost Rs.4 lakhs? Today if I move the car to Bangalore, i would have to valuate the car at 100000 and pay a duty of Rs.15000/- roughly. How ridiculous is that? And this when the 15 year life of the car is over. Even the RC is expired and the car's registration would have to be renewed every three years.
But the Karnataka government wants me to pay Rs.15000/- for unusable roads.

If you are a central govt employee or a defense personnel, you can opt to pay an yearly road tax.
On the other hand, if you are employed elsewhere, get a letter from you HR stating that you are here only for an 10 months or so. Pay an yearly road tax and also keep latest toll receipts, PUC from your home state.

There was a recent ruling that the central govt employees also need to pay the LTT. It was discussed in this thread a few months back. Not sure if it is rolled back.

Anyone has an idea of the time it takes RTO to send new registration details after application has been submitted?

I had filed for a KA-53 number (KR Puram) 6 weeks back and I still haven't got a new number.

The LTT was paid last year, and it took them only 2 weeks, at that time, to send registration (smart card) with updated address.

There is no need to pay road tax if you are staying in KA for 10 months.
You will have to pay once you cross a year's time. I own a KA registered car and stayed in Mumbai for 13 months. Couple of times traffic cops stopped me and asked me to pay MH tax to which i replied them that as per central motor vehicles act (i dont know clause etc), there is a need to pay tax only if you stay for more than a year. They did not question further and asked me to go

Better get a letter from office. It serves as a proof of your entry in to Karnataka.

Also got to know that road tax has been increased for all vehicles by 0.5% starting from 1-Aug-2012. I think KA govt will charge us 50% in another five years

Does any one have latest 2012 taxation structure? I searched on rto.kar.nic.in and it shows tax as of year 2008.

I had been to Bangalore last week ( with my KL regd car)and was stopped by RTO officials in electronics city. The officer was a gentleman and verified my vehicle documents and asked for Karnataka Tax. I replied to him that I am here on a official visit and will be leaving to Kerala next day. He updated my insurance document with a comment as checked on 27/09 and said i can leave.

I travel once in a month for a day or two to Bangalore and asked him whether I need to pay the tax. He said if it is for a day or two it is not required.

While my documents was being checked there were few out of state vehicles which was being checked and was asked to pay the tax next day.

Indeed the officer was a gentleman. However I personally know people who are driving non KA registered vehicles for a long time and have always evaded paying tax. Even if they are caught they manage to wriggle out of the situation "you know how"! I guess it is a simple decision taken by conscience, if one is staying for an extended period and as defined by the RTO if one has to pay tax then so be it. We just cannot change the system overnight unfortunately.
