The road transport ministry has come up with new draft rules that will enables all those moving to a new state to re-register their vehicles easily.
The ministry in a statement said it is considering a new system of vehicle registration wherein allocation would be marked as 'IN' series. Further the system shall be adopted on a pilot test basis."This vehicle registration facility under 'IN series' will be available to Defence personnel, employees of Central Government, State Governments, Central/ State PSUs and private sector companies/organisations, which have their offices in five or more States/Union Territories.
"The motor vehicle tax will be levied for two years or in multiple of two," it said.
As per the statement, the new vehicle registration facility shall enable free movement of personal vehicles across any state in the country as and when the individual relocates to a new state. In the case of both central as well as state government employees and upon transfer to another state they confront the hassle of transferring the vehicle registration from parent state to another state.
The proposed rules have been listed on the ministry of transport's website for the comments and suggestions of various stakeholders.
