While everyone dreams of owning a car, it is important to know that vehicle owners are required to pay road tax to their state government. Road tax is a one-time charge and is levied on private vehicles at the time of registration. The state of Gujarat imposes a road tax on all vehicles registered with the state’s Regional Transport Offices. The revenue generated through road tax contributes to the maintenance and development of road connectivity in the state.
Gujarat RTO serves as the administering and regulating authority for overseeing vehicle- related services in the state, including vehicle registration, issuance and renewal of driver’s licenses, granting permits, vehicle fitness certificates, collection of road tax, and controlling
pollution. The system also allocates unique RTO codes to various functional zonal within the state. There are around 36 RTOs in Gujarat that carry out all transport-related activities. These RTO codes are used to identify and register vehicles in a concerned jurisdiction. It also plays an important role in the maintenance of the vehicle database.
