Centre to hike vehicle registration fee
New Delhi: The central government has decided to hike the fee for vehicle registration and renewal. The union ministry for transport has issued a draft notification in this regard.
As per the notification, Rs 5000 will be charged for registering new diesel and petrol cars. At present only Rs 600 is collected as registration fee and renewal charge. With the new notification, renewal charges will rise to Rs 10,000.
Two wheelers owners will have to shell out Rs 1000 for registering their vehicles and Rs 2000 as renewal charges. Current registration fee is Rs 50 for two wheelers.
However, there is no need to pay registration fee if you produce an official certificate of destruction to ensure that your old vehicle was scrapped and sold out.
At the same time, no registration fee will be charged for electric vehicles.
According to the draft notification, fee for renewal of registration will also go up.
