A National Permit is a type of registration provided to transporters by the Transport Department of each State Government for goods carriage throughout India. State Governments can issue two types of permit for goods carriage—one being a State Permit and the other a National Permit. A National Permit provides authorisation for a vehicle to ply across India, within the state in which it was issued, within Union Territories, and at least four other states.
To obtain a National Permit, the owner of a vehicle must make an application to the concerned State Regional Transport Authority. The restriction placed on the age of vehicles for which National Permits are sought varies by State.
In some States, there is a restriction on the type of vehicle that may be granted National Permit; however, in most cases it is possible to obtain National Permit for vehicles less than 12 years old.
