The irony is Road Tax in Karnataka (which the also the highest in the country)includes VAT amount as well.

The road tax charged in Karnataka is 2.5 the national average of 6% and many states exclude VAT component while calculating VAT.

Waseem.....

I think they should just rename the taxes instead of these weird names

Buying a car for personal use tax - 10%

Using a car for personal use tax - 5%

Since You are rich enough to afford a car tax - 5%

Road for which we used your money but we want to just take additional money tax - 5%

Enjoying the Bangalore weather tax - 2.5%

Enjoying the Bangalore traffic tax - 1% (Silk Board / ORR / Whitefield - 2%)

For others to hit you anytime and you can pay us tax - 5%

Just because we wasted all the money we need yours tax - 2%

We want to look good for noble causes like education tax - 1%

Since we have so many taxes we just want to add one more tax - 1%

Is the road tax calculated on factory tax invoice or on ex-showroom price?

Example if factory invoice is 8 lakhs and ex-showroom price after discount is 10 lakhs. How would road tax be calculated?

Its calculated on ex-showroom price (inclusive of VAT) and discount does not come in to play for calculating road tax.

Road Tax is calculated on the ex-showroom price before the discount. My expectation was that the road tax is calculated on the total invoice value (after discount), but as per RTO, discounts provided by the dealers are not considered.

RTO was asking, if you get the vehicle for free, does it mean that you don't have to pay the road tax..?

Wow, thanks for the information.

I am sure the dealers have a different arrangement with RTO.

As an end customer, we have to pay tax on money we did not spend.

The chart it right but does not show all the additional cess. That 14% ends up as 15.4%

Yes, One has to include 11% cess on the tax amount calculated. Thanx for the pointer.

I can tell you my experience. The tax for cars above 20 L is 18.65%, below 20 L is 16.5%. The Jetta TDI Elegance DSG will cost you 20.51 L. There was a loyalty bonus of 20 K and exchange of 20 K. So post discount the vehicle would be 20.11. Then there was a corporate discount of 7 K. In total the ex-showroom would have been 20.4. This was interesting, as I asked the dealer to give me a 10 K discount so that the car falls below 20L and I could avoid the 18.65% tax.
As it turned out, this is exactly the situation the Govt wants to avoid. Circumventing the 20 L mark. Irrespective of the final sale price, the govt will always go with the value of the car that the company informs the Govt. Which is the MRP and not the discounted amount. I guess there is no way around this.

Guys if you buy a new car in Maharastra and then register it in Karnataka, what are all the things that need to be considered for road tax?

I know there is additional VAT of 2%

Is there any entry tax, I am being told there is an additional 2% entry tax?

Also if an agent claims he can register on dealer invoice, will there be a problem in the future?

Thanks
