Tamil Nadu government rolls out 100% tax exemption for e-vehicles

Tamil Nadu government rolls out 100% tax exemption for e-vehicles

The Tamil Nadu government has rolled out 100 percent tax exemption on electric vehicle in a major boost to the adoption of electric vehicles in the State; the Tamil Nadu government has passed on order for 100 per cent exemption of motor vehicle tax for battery-operated vehicles (BOVs). The State government had earlier issued orders for a 50 per cent concessional rate of lifetime tax in respect of battery-operated two-wheelers and four-wheelers of non-transport vehicles. However, after careful examination it has decided to grant a full tax exemption for all BOVs.

All BOVs, both transport and non-transport (EVs), are exempted from payment of motor vehicle tax under the Act from November 3, 2020 to December 31, 2022, said the government order dated November 2. The Tamil Nadu government has been making several efforts to emerge as an attractive center for electric mobility. Last year, it launched a separate policy for EVs, paving the way for fresh investments by several players into EV manufacturing and associated areas.

In March 2020, the State government announced it would also plan a futuristic EV charging station using solar power at a government campus. This EV charging station will offer slow and fast charge features. Depending on the success of this model, the government is all set to ramp up the number of such stations in the city.
