Karnataka announces tax concessions for switching to electric vehicles after scrapping old vehicles

The concession for two-wheelers ranges from Rs 1,000 to Rs 5,000 and Rs 10,000 to Rs 40,000 for four-wheelers.


Introduction to the Incentive Scheme

The Karnataka government has taken a bold step in promoting electric vehicles (EVs) by introducing a tax concession for those who scrap their old vehicles. Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister H K Patil recently announced this cabinet decision, unveiling a range of tax benefits for new EV buyers.

Details of the Tax Concession

The tax concession varies based on the type and cost of the vehicle. For two-wheelers, the concession ranges from Rs 1,000 to Rs 5,000, depending on the vehicle’s price. The scheme is more lucrative for four-wheelers, offering concessions from Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000. This initiative is part of the Registered Vehicles Scrapping Policy 2022 and includes provisions for electric transport vehicles as well.

Additional Government Initiatives

Alongside the EV policy, the Karnataka cabinet has also focused on the welfare of motor transport workers and educational reform. The introduction of the Karnataka Motor Transport and Other Allied Workers Social Security and Welfare Cess Ordinance 2024 aims to generate a substantial welfare fund. Furthermore, the government’s plan to establish a Unified University and College Management System signifies its commitment to modernizing and streamlining educational administration.
