India: No more registration charges for electric vehicles

The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has notified that EVs will ‘be exempted from paying a fee for the issue or renewal of registration certificates and assignment of the new registration mark.’

In May 2021, the ministry had announced the draft notification to further amend the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 proposing to exempt Battery Operated Vehicles (BOV) from paying fees for issue or renewal of Registration Certificate (RC) and assignment of new registrations. The idea is to encourage e-mobility and faster adoption of electric vehicles in the country.

Though many states have waived off registration fees for EVs in their individual policies, the current notification will benefit EV customers across the country and bring uniformity.
