Telangana Road Tax

Indian state Telangana has an extensive network of roadways, connecting it to different parts of the country. Its capital city, Hyderabad, has a sizeable vehicle population. The cost of a new vehicle in the state is determined after factoring in a lifetime road tax on the showroom price. This tax amount is used to improve the roads and infrastructure facility in the state. The Transport Department of the Government of Telangana State is tasked with enforcement of the Motor Vehicles Act and Rules, collection of taxes and fees, issuance of driving licences, registration of motor vehicles and granting permits to vehicles.
