Rich goans registering their expensive cars in Pondichery, Chandigarh


The media reported that rich goans are registering their expensive cars like Mercedes Benz, Audi, BMW, in Pondichery, Chandigarh to avoid paying high road taxes . In Goa like in most other places in India, the road tax is 10 per cent of the car value for cheaper cars and 15% for high end cars costing more than Rs 20 lakh,
However in Pondichery a flat amount has to be paid and the car owner can save a substantial amount of more than 10 lakh for cars costing more than Rs 1 crore like the high end Mercedes benz cars
There are some agents in Pondicherry who specialize in doing all the paperwork for the wealthy car owners, allowing them to save road tax
