Pay more for RC renewal of old vehicles from October 1 this year.

If you have a 15-year-old car or any other vehicle, you will have to pay a huge amount for the RC renewal of such vehicles. The Ministry of Roads and Transport has issued a draft notification explaining how costly it will become to own an old vehicle later this year. The notification is part of the broader vehicle scrappage policy earlier proposed by the govt in Union Budget which said passenger vehicles older than 20 years and commercial vehicles which are 15 years old will have to undergo mandatory fitness tests to stay on

According to the notification, a vehicle owner will have to pay 5,000 for the RC renewal of the car.At the same time, for a bike, the owner will have to pay 1000 rupees instead of the current 300.The worst hit would be the bus and truck operators.It would be 21 times more expensive for them to get a fitness renewal certificate for a 15-year-old bus or truck.When the rule kicks in, they will have to pay 12,500 for renewal.
