KERALA ROAD TAX REVISED WEF 01 April 2014.

Hi everyone from KERALA,

Happened to see a message/thread in this forum discussing about possible change in cost of bike with effect from 1st of April; which is based on a message posted in Team-bho by some one in kerala who have booked his S750 in Kochi HD.
The discussions happening in above thread is about possible hike in Ex-Showroom price of the bike. Actually, what the guy who posted in team-bhp meant is about the road tax hike from April 2014 in KERALA.

Below is the pdf files pertaining to the Tax Revisions.

For Finance bill 2014-15

(Read page 14, clause - 3)

Circular (This IS very important)
http://www.keralamvd.gov.in/images/m...2014/02-14.pdf
(Read clause 13, for taxing method)

Hope these helps and eliminate all the speculations and apprehensions.

So basically, we have to pay 10% of Purchase Value (this is NOT Ex-Showroom Price); ie, of BASIC PRICE of the bike. Basic value is the figure WITHOUT tax elements (less VAT & Cess)

NOTE - Ex-Showroom Value = Basic Price + VAT + Cess

Hope this will be useful to all who plan to puchase a vehicle after this financial year. (end of march-14)

Am yet to get the breakup of Ex-Showroom Price from HD Kochi. Will post as soon as I get it.

Nope basuroy, tax revision is effected ONLY in KERALA. People who have booked the bike in pther states dont have to worry about any difference in committed OTR cost.

Those who have booked the bike can rejoice. 99.9% the tax revision wont affect commited price from Spice Coast H-D. If there is any, it wud be tad low figure mostly.

Cos, earlier the road tax were fixed on certain percentage (6% I guess) of Ex-SHOWROOM PRICE. But as per the latest taxation method, road tax is Fixed at 10% of Ex-FACTORY price. So the difference wud be almost negligible.

VAT is charged at 14.5% of Ex-Factory price. So hereafter this will have to be reduced from current Ex-Showroom price to find the new road tax which will be 10% of that value.

Hope all are clear
