Dear All Participants ,
As NV.Vanaraj said, payment of Road Tax is sate subject. Even though we pay life tax in one state and in case if you wish to move to another state, for the remaining life of the vehicle you have to pay Tax.
Example If you have vehicle of 2001 year with LIfe time Tax Paid, and in the year 2005 if you wish to shift to another state, in the new state you have pay life tax for the remaining life period of the vehicle.
Act says aftre gtting the new registration, you can ask refund of the unsued portionof the life tax of the Original State.
I can say all these laws are bullsh*t and only to loot common public. I have suffered a lot . Motor Vehicle Act says the Registration is valid to drive the Vehicle in India. on the other hand it says you cannot use the Vehicle more than 12 months in any other state. In such case you have to change the Registration Number.
The big problem we face with traffic police. the moment another state name plate appears, it will be a festival for them to celebrate. No RTO follows rules and Government also not ready to amend the rules.
Diversity in Unity. No state police allow another state vehiccle and really treat the vehicle onwers as criminals. It is utter nonsence.
