Nagpur, the orange city of India, is the winter capital of Maharashtra and the largest exporter of oranges in India. With its strategic location in the central region of India, the city has one of the biggest customs warehouses that demands a lot of freight and logistics to and from the city. Needless to say, the road infrastructure of Nagpur is prioritised by the Government of Maharashtra to keep it slick.

 

Considering the round geography of the city, a more suitable option for local transportation in Nagpur would be the metro which is yet to begin its full operations. Meanwhile, the locals rely on personal vehicles and commercial road transport for commuting, leaving a major source of revenue for the government.

 

As a Nagpur resident, the road tax you pay is a significant amount, and here’s a look into the detailed intricacies of RTO charges in your city.

Why is Road Tax Levied at State Level

Road tax is a compulsory state level tax, i.e., the State Government of each state imposes this tax at their individual level based on different rules and regulations. Hence, the road tax is different for each state. Now the question arises, why do states levy road tax. The State Governments are responsible for the construction and maintenance of the road infrastructure in their respective states. Since they bear the cost of construction of these roads, they levy road tax on vehicles in their respective states.

How is Road Tax Calculated in Nagpur

  • Like Pune and Bangalore, the RTO tax in Nagpur does not depend on the purpose for which you use the vehicle.

  • The components that affect the amount of RTO tax you pay are the type of your vehicle, its age, make, model, capacity of the engine, and the ex-showroom value of your bike, car, or bus.

  • The rate of tax is calculated as a percentage of the ex-showroom value of the bike or car and not the on-road price. The ex-showroom value does not include indirect tax like GST and other payments made towards insurance and registration.

  • Nagpur RTO also charges different rates depending upon the fuel used to operate the vehicle such as petrol, diesel, or CNG.
