Remove Road Tax for Electric Vehicles in Tamil Nadu

This petition made change with 368 supporters!

World over Electric Vehicles (EVs) adoption is taking place rapidly. The aim is to accelerate the shift to plug-in vehicles powered by clean, affordable, domestic electricity to reduce our country's dependence on imported oil and thus improve our cities air quality.

Various governments all over the world like China, Europe and USA are offering generous subsidies to accelerate this change. Government of India too is offering subsidies to EVs through the FAME II scheme. Indian states like Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Delhi and Goa are offering various subsidies including the complete removal of Road Tax on EVs.   

Government of Tamil Nadu however continues to levy a 5% road tax on EVs which makes the registration of EVs considerably more expensive than neighboring states like Karnataka.  

Through this petition we urge the State Transport Authority - Government of Tamil Nadu to completely remove the Road Tax levied on all Electric Vehicles and encourage people to shift to Electric Vehicles.
