Delhi Road Tax: Car RTO Registration Charges

Delhi state government imposes road tax on vehicles plying daily on roads to maintain, improve, and build road infrastructure in the national capital. As per the Motor Vehicle Taxation Act 1962, every vehicle owner, who is a resident of Delhi is obliged to pay RTO charges. The road tax charges depend on various parameters (seating capacity of the vehicle, age, vehicle type/category, engine capacity, etc.) and are collected by the Delhi RTO.

The Regional Transport Office (RTO) is the authority responsible for vehicle registration (RC), issuing and renewing driver licensing, and permits, controlling pollution, and implementing road regulations and safety measures in Delhi. There are 14 RTO offices in Delhi, which are controlled by the Transport Commissioner. Each RTO is assigned a unique code that identifies its jurisdiction and location. These RTO codes play a crucial role in vehicle registration, helping streamline administrative processes and ensuring effective governance over the state’s road transportation.
