Default Re: Karnataka Road Tax, Crack down announced.EDIT: High Court Judgement on Pg 36 atta

I do not understand why cant the other state govt transfers the amount to the new state. Why is the common man getting punished for govt's inefficiencies. The difference amount can be paid by the owner of the car.

Bhpians,

Need a piece of info from you on the following

I got a new Swift delivered from Kerala last week. I got the temporary registration done from there and brought the car to Bangalore to register it here. I took the car to Indiranagar RTO office, made a dd payment of Rs.98643/- towards road tax and paid a couple of thousands to the agent towards the registration charges and his commission. I colleceted the tax payment reciept and took the car for inspection the next day. After the vehicle inspection the agent told me that he will call me back in the evening and tell me what the car number would be and when I can collect the RC.

He called me in the evening and demanded Rs.2000 more and told me if I am not willing to pay I will have to wait for another week to get the registration done(yes, this is the same evening after the vehicle inspection). I was surprised and asked him what this payment would be for. He says as my vehicle's temporary registration is from Kerala, the RTO officer will have to get an official confirmation from the Kerala RTO that the registration is genuine (I was surprised to hear from the agent that the temporary registration certificate from Kerala RTO is not official enough!!!) and if I am willing to pay the extra amount they will get it done faster.

My question is, if I buy a car from a dealership outside the state and want to get it registered in Bangalore, is any other official confirmation required from the RTO than the temporary registration certificate?

Sir ,

Re registration procedure of a temp or permanent RC is same. RTO needs a official communication from the host state.

Paying extra money cant be commented. If i would have been, at your place, would have done directly.

Quotes what agents gives, mostly are hyped and non existent which goes to his pocket only, but claims in the name of RTO.

Ridiculously enough, brand new goods carrier trucks pay a paltry 10-20k as life time road tax in Karnataka. http://rto.kar.nic.in/KMVTA%202010.pdf

So - those who contribute to maximum road deterioration, occupy maximum road space and above all - buy vehicles to make money on them - pay the least tax!

Those who buy a car for their own use and lose money on them -pay the most tax!

By the way, off late I have been hearing from alot of people - that they no longer need to pay KA road tax for long term use of cars from other states. Is this true?

Doesn't Karnataka have something called an entry tax ?

Maybe , but I am shortly moving from Pune to Chennai and was thinking of the same. Buying the car on temp registration in Pune and registering it in Chennai. I came across some points talking about this entry tax in KA & TN and hence dropped my plans. Do you have any info on this ?

I don't think there is anything called entry tax for private vehicles. I got my car on temporary registration to bangalore and got it registered here. As it is evident I did not pay the road tax in kerala but in karnataka which is nearly 9% more. Only thing is that you need to inform the showroom guys that you plan to get it registered in so and so RTO such that they can mention the RTO office name in the temporary registration.

I got it done in November 2012 and am not aware of any change in rules after that. But i really dont think you will be facing any issues.

The RTO guys seem to starting their campaign in full force again. They have been camped out below Krystal Beryl Apartment on Bannerghatta Road in the mornings for the past few days and flagging down all outstation vehicles.

KA & KL have done away with entry tax. It's applicable in TN. But as with everything else, you are expected to pay a bribe and get away with paying some 3 or 4k as entry tax instead of 30k or so.

I am thinking of getting my 2011 Ritz car VXI Genus to Bangalore,Karnataka from Ranchi,Jharkhand.
Should i pay up the taxes or wait for the cops to catch up.
How about getting a PUC Certificate getting done from Ranchi every 6 months and then getting it couriered.Any pointers/suggestion will be much appreciated.
Also, approximate road tax amount that i may have to shell.

I was in the same situation. But peace of mind is more important than the money IMHO. So bought a new car in Bangalore and left my car back home.

Also, as far as I know, there is no problem in using your vehicle for a year in Karnataka, after that you need to pay the Road taxes. So, I think you can wait and watch.

But if you purchase a car in KA, where the taxes are higher, and bring it to TN where the taxes are lower, would the entry tax still need to be paid? I assume that the entry tax is a net off against whatever is paid in the state of purchase (as against state of registration). Especially if it is a new car and road tax registrations haven;t happened as yet.

Does the car not require to be present in order to get the PUC certificate? Or is it because it is the 'United and Autonomous States of Ranchi', that you can have it done ' in absentia ' so to say? Jokes apart, as a responsible forum member and citizen, I don't think you should even be suggesting what you've suggested above.
If you plan to migrate to another state along with your car, then I suggest you be prepared to follow the rules in that state. Else, you will have to just sell your car in your home state and buy another one in the state you migrate to.
