Road Tax FAQs

I have brought my vehicle to Bangalore from another state. What should I do?

The most important thing to do is to pay the Karnataka road tax at the earliest. This has to be done within one month of moving to Karnataka. It is good to preserve toll receipts or any other evidence of the date when your vehicle entered the state however these are not mandatory. The govt. trusts that the date of entry you declare on the tax payment forms is correct. In case you have already arranged an NOC from your home state, the date of NOC is considered as the date of entry. If this date is more than a month old, you have to pay a late fine. After paying road tax, one has to go for re-registration (Change of Address and Number Plate).
