By : |June 20, 2019 0

The Ministry of Road Transports and Highways has suggested abolishing registration fees for battery operated or electric vehicles (EV’s), as part of the government’s plan to develop an ecosystem to allow such cars to be adopted. Two, three or four-wheelers, which are battery operated would not be required to pay fees for issuing or renewal of registration certificate.

According to the Ministry, “In order to give a boost to battery-operated or electric vehicles in the country, the ministry of road transport and highways has initiated steps for providing for differential registration fees under the Central Motor Vehicles Rules 1989.”

Due to which, the Central Motor Vehicles Rules will have to be amended and the government has issued a draft to receive comments from the stakeholders regarding the same.

“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 the new registration mark,” the Ministry added.
