Starting from April next year, vehicle owners will have to shell out Rs 5,000 for renewal of registration of the cars older than 15 years, which is eight times more than what they currently pay.

 

 

According to the notification, renewal of certificate of fitness for a bur truck older than 15 years will cost nearly eight times higher charges than owners of the commercial vehicles currently pay.

 

 

While charges of registration renewal of a 15-year-old car would be Rs 5,000 compared to the current fee of Rs 600, the charges of registration renewal of old bikes would be Rs 1,000 compared to the current fee of Rs 300.

 

 

Similarly, a fitness renewal certificate for a 15 year-plus bus or truck would cost Rs 12,500 from the current fee of Rs 1,500; while in the case of medium goods or passenger motor vehicle, it would cost Rs 10,000

 

Renewal of registration for imported bikes and cars will cost Rs 10,000 and Rs 40,000, respectively.

 

 

According to the notification, these rules may be called the Central Motor Vehicles (23rd Amendment) Rules, 2021, and shall come into force with effect from April 1, 2022.

 

The notification said an additional fee of Rs 50 for each day of delay after the expiry of certificate of fitness shall be levied.

 

 

It also said an additional fee of Rs 200 shall be levied if the certificate of registration is a smart card-type issue.

 

As per the notification, in case of delay in applying for renewal of certificate of registration, an additional fee of Rs 300 for delay of every month in case of private vehicles and Rs 500 for delay of every month in case of commercial vehicles shall be levied.

 

 

Under the the National Automobile Scrappage Policy launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in August this year, mandatory fitness testing for heavy commercial vehicles is likely to be in force from April 1, 2023, and the same will be in place in a phased manner for other categories from June 1, 2024.
