The Haryana Cabinet on Tuesday exempted buses from educational institutions in the National Capital Region (NCR) states from paying motor vehicle tax when entering and operating in Haryana, according to an official statement. The cabinet met this evening under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
It endorsed a proposal regarding liability exemptions from paying motor vehicle tax to buses from educational institutions in the NCR states when entering and operating in Haryana in accordance with the reciprocal common transport agreement, according to the press release. The exemption concerns institutions based in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, other than Haryana, which is also part of the NCR.
This will facilitate the seamless operation of buses from educational institutions in other states in the NCR of Haryana, he said. At present, motor vehicles registered in states other than Haryana are required to pay motor vehicle tax when entering and driving in the state at the specified rates. In order to give effect to this motor vehicle tax exemption, an amendment to the notification dated September 29, 2017, issued by the state government, had to be made. Therefore, the current notification change was made as a public welfare measure to promote ease of living for students and ease of business for schools, he said.
