Road Ministry Proposes Exemption of Registration Fees for Electric Vehicles: India

The government has issued a draft inviting comments from the stakeholders

Pushing ahead for a greener nation, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has proposed to exempt battery-operated vehicles from the registration fees. Two-, three- and four-wheelers, which are battery operated, will not have to pay fees for renewal of the registration certificate.

The government has issued a draft inviting comments from the stakeholders. The ministry has to amend the Central Motor Vehicles Rules before making the proposed changes.

“The amendment proposes to exempt battery-operated vehicles from payment of fees for the purpose of issue or renewal of registration certificate and assignment of new registration mark,” the Ministry said.
