MUMBAI: Maharashtra government on Tuesday issued an order giving a 50% waiver in road tax payable by goods and commercial vehicles for a year from April 2020 to March 2021.
Transporters who have suffered huge losses due to lockdown demanded a complete waiver for six months of lockdown from April 1 to September 30, which if not granted, they will launch an agitation.
The GR will ensure that vehicles will be back on roads, but private bus and cab operators told TOI there was confusion. A delegation of transporters will go to Mantralaya for a clarification.
Malik Patel of Mumbai Bus Malak Sanghatana said, “We do not want to pay 50% taxes for six lockdown months as our vehicles were not used.” More than 11.4 lakh vehicles registered in the state will benefit from the GR.
