Known as the first and one of the most planned cities in India, Chandigarh has well- maintained roads. However, to maintain the quality of these roads, the UT Transport Department levies road tax on vehicles plying on the roads in Chandigarh. Road tax is mainly a one-time charge mandated by law to maintain the infrastructure of Indian roadways.
Starting from 11 July 2023, the Chandigarh Transport Department has increased the road tax slab for two-wheelers (up to 8%) and four-wheelers (up to 10%). The revenue generated form of road tax will be used to maintain and develop UT transportation infrastructure.
The Regional Transport Office, or Chandigarh RTOs, administers all vehicle-related activities, including issuing registration certificates (RC), driver’s licenses, renewals, vehicle permits, controlling pollution, and the implementation of road safety practices. One of the key functions of Chandigarh RTO is to assign unique RTO codes to different geographic regions in the Union Territory. There are over 6 RTOs in Chandigarh which helps in maintaining a database of the vehicles in the state.
