Tax will increase on old vehicles

The central government is going to increase the duty on all old private and commercial vehicles. For re-registration of a bike, car or bus that is more than 15 years old from April 2022, eight times more fee will have to be paid. However, this policy will not have any impact on the vehicle owners of Delhi.
