Manipur Road Tax

Manipur, also referred to as the “Jewel of India,” is surrounded by forests and hills on all sides. The mountainous terrain makes it difficult for the state government to build and maintain roads. Further, like many other states in northeastern India, Manipur is also prone to landscapes during monsoons that make the task of maintaining roads difficult.

The state government has been trying hard to boost the road infrastructure in Manipur, but these challenges have been making the task difficult.

Apart from the topographical challenges, building and maintaining roads in Manipur is also expensive. Hence, the state government levies road tax in Manipur to manage these costs. As per the traffic rules, all vehicles registered in the state have to pay Manipur RTO charges. The tax is calculated based on numerous factors like the type of vehicle, its engine power, weight, cost, etc.

On this page, we will discuss everything that you need to know about road tax or RTO tax in Manipur, including the calculation of tax and steps to help you pay it online/offline.

What is Road Tax?

India is the most populous country in the world. Also, in recent years, the number of vehicles in India has grown exponentially due to a range of factors, resulting in the development of additional road infrastructure and frequent repair and maintenance requirements.

If the national highways require upkeep, then the central government takes care of it. However, if the state highways or internal roads require upkeep and maintenance, then it is the responsibility of the state government to cater to it.

To manage the expenses associated with building and maintaining roads, the state government levies road tax on all vehicles registered in the state. When you purchase a new vehicle, you are liable to pay road tax at the time of registering it. However, if you already own a vehicle and are planning to move to another state for a long period, then you will have to register it and pay the road tax. This is because every state has its own road tax rules and rates.
