Maharashtra govt. hikes motor vehicle tax

04 July 2017 | Mumbai


The Maharashtra government has decided to increase Motor Vehicle Tax (MVT) by 2% for vehicles costing up to INR 20 lakh.

Luxury vehicles are exempt from the tax hike.

The tax increase is an attempt to compensate for the revenue loss that the state treasury will incur due to the abolition of octroi and local body tax from July 1.

The MVT is levied at the time of purchase of the vehicle. The state government hopes to add INR 700 crore to its kitty from the new tax.

The decision to increase the tax was taken at the state Cabinet meeting on Monday.

A press statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office said that for two- and three-wheelers the MVT, which is between 8 to 10, will increase to 10 to 12%.

The statement said, the tax on petrol vehicles will increase from 9 to 11% to 11 to 13%.

For diesel vehicles, the tax, which is currently from 11 to 13%, will increase to 13 to 15%. On CNG and LPG vehicles, the tax will increase from 5 to 7% to 7 to 9%.
