Puducherry government on recent tax evasion controversies took a bold statement to issue vehicle registration to permanent residential only. The Kerala Motor Vehicle Department has recently issued a notice regarding the Mini Cooper Controversy; where the CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has reportedly seen using it for his "Jana Jagratha Yatra" in Koduvalli. The MVD is now preparing a list of vehicles registered under Puducherry to find fraudulent owners.
In Kerala, the tax is levied as per the total price of the vehicle, where vehicles below Rs 5 lakhs attracts 6 percent of the total amount. While vehicles from 5 lakh to 10 lakhs attracts a total of 8 percent and vehicles from 10 lakhs to 15 lakhs attracts 10 percent, vehicles from 15 lakhs to 20 lakhs attracts 15 percent and vehicles above 20 lakh attracts a whopping 20 percent. The high tax rates of the state make people and even celebrities register their vehicles under places like Puducherry where tax rates are considerably low and affordable.
The Kerala Motor Vehicle Department and Puducherry Government are on full swing to catch tax evaders in the state.
