Kerala tourism bodies flay road tax ‘hike’


The ‘Tourism Professionals Club’ has come out strongly against the hike on road tax for tourist vehicles.

The Club in a statement to the media said that the press note issued by State Finance Department stating that there is no hike does not reflect ground reality.

The club claimed that the government action of hiking tax for tourism vehicles is unjustified. “The road tax for Tata Aria (6 plus driver seat) was `1160. This is now `6000. The government has also made it mandatory to pay two years tax together, therefore `12,000 has to be paid per vehicle at a time,” said George Scaria, President of the club.
