Haryana Government Streamlines Motor Vehicle Tax Penalty, Auto News, ET Auto

To provide relief to vehicle owners in Haryana, the state government has decided to streamline and change the motor vehicle tax penalty rates to be levied on different categories of motor vehicles. The State Cabinet, which met on Friday under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, approved a proposal in this regard, an official statement said.

After rationalization, if the tax due in respect of a motor vehicle has not been paid by the owner or person in possession or control of it, within the time allowed, then in addition to the payment of the tax due, he is also liable to pay a penalty at the rate of 3% per month of the tax due.

The actual amount of the penalty must not exceed the amount of tax due, said an official statement after the cabinet meeting.

Currently, a penalty at the rate of 0.5% per day for each day of delay on car tax arrears, which amounts to 15% per month, together with simple interest at the rate of 1% per month on the tax due and a penalty is imposed.

In order to make the tax administration streamlined, simple and efficient, the issue was re-examined and it was found that the amount of the penalty is higher and needs to be streamlined to ensure better tax compliance. Therefore, the streamlining was approved by the state cabinet, he said.

In a separate decision, the cabinet approved a proposal regarding the acceptance of the Haryana Targeted Public Distribution System (Licensing and Control) Ordinance 2022.

Under this, 33% reservation will be granted to women for licensing fair price stores.

The Fair Price Shop License will be granted for a minimum of 300 ration card recipients. Whereas in rural areas, a village will be treated as a unit for this purpose. The fair price shop license will also be issued for less than 300 village ration cards.

Essentials will be distributed after Aadhaar biometric authentication under PDS via POS device at fair price shop.

In a major boost to the real estate sector and to ensure that the benefits of affordable housing projects reach end users, the Haryana Cabinet in a separate decision removed the freeze provision from 50% of salable area in the Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojna- Affordable Housing Policy, 2016.

As a security measure against possible delays in the completion of the project, the colonizer will now be required to mortgage residential plots covering a salable area of ​​10%.

Pursuant to the amendment, the developer will obtain an additional option for the construction of a needs-based community site at its own expense for the use of residents of the settlement as a whole and the provision of a community facility at a early stage.

Also, the colonizer will not be allowed to make any profit such as membership fees/membership fees from this community building, the statement said.

The settlers are required to obtain the certificate of occupation of the community site before the granting of the certificate of final completion.
