Default Driving rental car out of state - What taxes & fees to expect?

I have taken a sedan on rent from Mylescar. The car has a commercial vehicle registration in Haryana. I plan to drive it out of state, specifically to Delhi and Rajasthan. Having never taken a commercial car out of state, I have the following queries and I would be most grateful if someone could help me out. (Basic search of the forum did not turn out any matches)

What tax/ fee/ permit should I procure from the authorities at the state border?

If fee/ tax is to be paid, what is the amount where should I pay it? Is it possible to do it online?

It depends from state to state. In last 4 months I have travelled to Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab in a Delhi registered selfdrive rental car.

State Entry tax that I paid:
  • Uttarakhand - 250₹ for 24hrs.
  • Punjab - 250₹ for 24hrs.
  • Himachal Pradesh - 600₹ for 3 months.
I did not pay state entry tax for Haryana, as instructed by the selfdrive rental agency. I paid the tax on the state border while entering into the state. Not sure what is the procedure to pay the tax online.

As soon as you come to the border of the state you will see RTO, that's the place to pay it. Sometimes it gets hidden by vehicles but the amount of trucks standing is something which will be a good indicator

When i traveled from Bangalore to both Delhi and Rajasthan, i paid the following

Delhi - about Rs.1500 for a month (they didn't have weekly or daily stuff) the highest i paid among the 6 states i traveled

Rajasthan - about 300-400 for 4 or 7 days

How much time consuming is it to pay state entry tax? Cab drivers generally take around half an hour to pay this tax.

How is the experience of paying this tax?

I am planning to hire a self driving car for an upcoming interstate trip.

A more convenient option is to go online to the RTO website of the particular state and pay the tax for the number of days you have to stay in the state. If you have to just pass through the state, pay the tax twice, once while going and once when returning. DO remember to take a printout though.

eg. for Rajasthan, visit

http://www.transport.rajasthan.gov.i...transport.html

This would save you from the hassle of looking for tax payment centres, save you time also.

The timing depends, for me Delhi took about 45 minutes it was noon time and Rajasthan about 25 minutes (late at night). Another example is for Maharashtra I had to wait for 1 hour since the tax inspector had gone for lunch whereas in Gujarat it hardly took 7 minutes since everything is well organized.

My suggestion keep 30-45 minutes timeframe

You can get around the number of days thing. there is an option available on certain sites. Eg. https://vahan.up.nic.in/upcheckpost/...eckposttax.jsp

On the Rajasthan site also, you can calculate the tax for one day, multiply it with the no. of days you will be staying in Rajsthan and pay the tax.

I am planning to hire a self driving car for an upcoming interstate trip.

Again, I would say that it depends from state to state. I never took more than 10 mins, just hand over the RC, permit and give your mobile number. On 3 occasions I took just 5 mins.

While entering Uttarakhand from U.P I could locate more than 5 places where one can pay state entry tax.

I have never driven a commercial / self-driven rented vehicle across state borders. I am planning to hire a self-driven car for an upcoming interstate trip.

Usually, I see cab drivers take around half-an-hour to pay state entry tax.

Does it take this long? Also, how is the experience?

I would be crossing state border late in night. I assume these RTO offices are open round the clock.

Thanks a lot guys!

I had gone to Jaipur and the procedure to pay and the timeframe involved was very convenient with regard to Rajasthan RTO. It costs me Rs. 160 for one day and it took only 2 minutes to make the payment at the RTO post.

My only grouse is that the authorities can put up big boards signalling an RTO post. It is easy to miss them at highway speeds if one is not specifically looking out for them.
