    Chandigarh, June 1- Haryana government has decided to rationalize the rates of tax on the vehicles used for personal or special purposes by reducing the number of slabs and simplifying taxation structure which will improve tax compliance, create reliable database, reduce workload in offices and also reduce harassment of public as well as chances of corruption. A decision to this effect has been taken in a meeting of the State Cabinet held under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal here today. In case of vehicles for personal purpose, two wheeled vehicle upto the value of Rs 0.75 lakh, tax at the rate of four per cent of the value of the vehicle would be charged, whereas two wheeled vehicles above the value of Rs 0.75 lakh and upto Rs two lakh, tax at the rate of six per cent of the value of the vehicle would be charged. Similarly, in case of two wheeled vehicle above the value of Rs two lakh, tax at the rate of eight per cent of the value of the vehicle would be charged. Aside car drawn by the vehicles mentioned above and invalid carriage would be exempted from the tax. In case of vehicles other than two wheeled vehicle upto the value of Rs six lakh, tax at the rate of five per cent of the value of the vehicle would be charged as tax, whereas such vehicles above the value of Rs six lakh and upto Rs 20 lakh, tax at the rate of eight per cent of the value of the vehicle would be charged. Similarly, in case of vehicles above the value of Rs 20 lakh, tax at the rate of 10 per cent of the value of the vehicle would be charged. For vehicles for special purposes, six per cent of the value of vehicle would be charged as tax in case of Excavator, Loader, Backhoe, Compactor Roller, Motor Grader, Mobile Crane, Dozer, Fork Lift Truck, Self Loading Concrete Mixture, Vehicle Fitted with Rig, Generator, Compressor etc., Tow Truck, Break-Down Van, Recovery Vehicle, Tower Wagon, Tree-Trimming Vehicle, Mobile Workshop, Mobile Canteen, Cash Van, Mail Carrier, Fire Tender, Fire Fighting Vehicle, Mobile Clinic, X-Ray Van, Library Van, Ambulance and Animal Ambulance. Likewise, one per cent of the value of vehicle would be charged in case of Fire Tender, Fire Fighting Vehicle, Mobile Clinic, X-Ray Van, Library Van, Ambulance and Animal Ambulance owned by Boards, Corporations, Public Sector Undertakings of State or Central Government or by Red Cross Society or any such Charitable body registered as such under the Income Tax Act, charging nil or nominal fee for use of such vehicles. In case of vehicles used for personal purpose including camper van and caravans but not covered under category I or II, 12 per cent of the value of vehicle would be charged as tax. On the basis of above rates, an estimated additional revenue to the tune of Rs 120 crore per year is expected on account of road tax from the vehicle used for personal purposes only. The tax from the vehicles designed and used for special purposes will further add more revenue to the state exchequer. The interests of working class families and persons with disability have been taken care of in the new proposal and hence the tax rates of vehicles of affordable value have been kept lower as compared to costlier vehicles.
