The Delhi authorities has exempted all battery operated autos from registration payment below its electrical automobile coverage, Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot stated on Friday.
Earlier this week, the federal government had waived street tax on all electrical autos.
“Congrats once more, Delhi! Subsequent in record of breakthrough incentives promised by CM @ArvindKejriwal, Delhi govt exempts Registration payment on Battery Operated Autos. Delhi leads once more, the EV means!,” Mr Gahlot stated in a tweet.
The Transport division in a notification issued on Thursday said that the registration payment prescribed (as per Rule 81 of Motor Car Guidelines, 1989) won’t be relevant on battery operated autos as outlined below Central Motor Car Guidelines, 1989.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had in August launched the Electrical Car Coverage, asserting incentives of as much as Rs 1.5 lakh on the acquisition of four-wheelers, Rs 30,000 on two-wheelers, auto-rickshaws, e-rickshaws and freight carriers, moreover promising waiver of street tax and registration payment.
The registration payment of a automobile is calculated as 4-12.5 per cent of its ex showroom value.
