Chandigarh to stop registration of non-electric 2-wheelers

Registration of petrol-powered 2-wheelers will be halted from February 10 to March 31, 2023.

The Chandigarh administration has announced that it would stop the registration of non-electric 2-wheelers from February 10, 2023.

The Chandigarh administration aims to discourage the use of non-electric vehicles by putting a cap on their registration. Under its new EV policy, the city hopes to reduce the number of 4-wheelers and 2-wheelers by 10% and 35%, respectively. Since the registration of non-electric 2-wheelers has already been achieved for the current fiscal year, their registration is being stopped immediately.

The administration has notified that non-electric 2-wheelers sold on or after February 10, 2023 will not be registered by the office of Registering & Licensing Authority, UT, Chandigarh, in the current financial year, that is, till March 31, 2023 in pursuance of Electric Vehicle Policy 2022.

On the other hand, the city is offering a waiver on road tax on electric and hybrid vehicles to encourage electric mobility.
