HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday extended the ad interim order passed by it earlier granting relief to the petitioners by way of a conditional stay of vehicle tax on their carriages coming from Andhra Pradesh to Telangana state, till Saturday.
A division bench comprising chief justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta and Justice PV Sanjay Kumar was dealing with a batch of petitions filed by a section of private operators challenging the notification issued by the Telangana government imposing MV tax on AP vehicles.
It may be recalled that the bench while admitting the case on last Thursday has directed the petitioners to furnish indemnity bonds for the tax demanded and copies of vehicle documents to Telangana authorities, and that the vehicles shall not be alienated. The bench also asked the Telangana officials not to collect tax if the operators execute the bond and adjourned the case to Tuesday. The bench now posted the matter to Friday for passing comprehensive interim orders.
