After an amendment in 2007 in section 194I, rent on plant, machinery or equipment is subject to TDS at the rate of 10%. Therefore, crane hire charges is subject to TDS under section 194I.

Also when one or more of the propelling or control elements are located in the cab of a lifting or handling machine mounted on a wheeled chassis, then it would be classified as a crane, otherwise it is a motor vehicle.

Whether used in global trade as a tool for loading cargo, or in the construction of buildings or large technical projects – cranes are among the most important mechanical devices in human development.

Thus it is not a motor vehicle hence the MV act may not be applicable to this machinery
