HYDERABAD: Commercial vehicles coming from AP to Telangana will have to pay tax from April 1. The Telangana State Transport Department issued orders to this effect on Monday, in a move that is set to result in escalation of transport cost between the two States.

“All transport vehicles, including contract carriages, goods carriages, motor cabs, maxi-cabs, commercial tractor trailers and passenger auto-rickshaws, entering into Telangana State from Andhra Pradesh will be treated as other State vehicles. They will be subjected to levy of Motor Vehicle Tax at the specified rates and periods as applicable to the respective category of vehicles,” the department said in a notification. Deputy transport commissioners and motor vehicle inspectors of Telangana State are gearing up to conduct checks from April 1. Nalgonda DTC M Chandra Shekar Goud said they would be implementing the GO as per government instructions from early hours of April 1.

“We will be collecting taxes from the vehicles as per regulations, from early hours of April 1,” he said, adding the rate of tax depends on the type of vehicle and duration of stay in the State. The tax varies for contract carriage buses, motor cabs, and maxi cabs.

The government decision is in keeping with the orders issued by the erstwhile united AP under the AP Reorganisation Act that the quarterly tax paid for any quarter up to March 31, 2015 is for both States but after that, the successor States could decide the quantum of tax.
