Hi All,

Me and my 6 friends are planning to go to GOA. We talked to a Transport agency and he told us that he is going to give us a Qualis(with All India Permit) for the round trip from Bangalore-Goa-Bangalore.

But, he is telling that apart from the Cab hiring charge, we will also have to pay some tax of around Rs 1800 for getting into Goa state.

Can someone please tell me :
1. What kind of tax is this?
2. Is this correct to take this tax from the passenger? I mean to say, if this what is followed or is this guy trying to trick us in someway?
3. Is there any way to avoid such kind of tax?


I have traveled before in cabs but have only paid for TOLL taxes on the way. What kind of tax is this and do i actually have to pay this.

Please help.

Kind Regards,
KK

Yes, you do have to pay a vehicle tax to enter Goa, the amount depends on the size of the vehicle. For private cars it is nominal.
For a cab, whether passenger pays or it is added to the fare it comes to the same thing.

The amount you quote seems high, but maybe because of the size of a Qualis. You could query this.

I don't know the precise cab amounts as our regular taxi from Karwar has a Goa registration for his vehicle. (The only way to avoid the tax).

The "entry tax" was introduced by the BJP government after it's election success in March 2012. Even when this was announced in their subsequent budget, no details of figures or collection were mentioned, probably as they added it in at the last minute.
However, even the idiots running Goa would be astonished by rs1800!
Here are the budget details;

Until then there was none, the previous Congress government announced one but as with almost everything, absolutely nothing was done about it.

Since the recent introduction, the levy has been judged to be illegal, so presumably should not be charged?

So unless your regular taxi driver has ferried you across the border since the recent election, he was giving you a load of old coo-poo about evading any tax, little devil!

J5, you are getting confused. The entry tax is something totally different to what the OP is asking about. All taxis registered outside Goa have had to pay a tax while entering Goa. This is not something new and has been in place for a long time and neither is it unique to Goa. A taxi registered in Goa has to pay a tax to enter Karnataka.

The amount of the tax is dependent on the carrying capacity of the vehicle. A 5 seater taxi will have to pay less as compared to a 7 seater.

J5 Haven't been there since March of this year.

Tax was always payed at Karwar/Goa border, whether legal or not. Possibly corruption, but certainly charged and you don't argue when the barrier is down. Might lead to searches when going in the other direction!!!!

Our taxi driver we have known for years, his father ran the firm before him. He got his cab registered at his brother's address in Goa a few years ago. He does not do "old coo-poo".
When we go in September will find out from him if any changes in practice.

Just seen the above post which clears things up. Presumably the charge to go into Karnataka is less, will find out, next time, why worth it to register in Goa.

I think people just get confused about this since indeed quite often you won't notice you're paying any tolls or state border taxes, as indeed it's all just incorporated in the fare. I think buses, and so you as the passenger, pay them too, no? I guess indeed registration details may matter further, I think it further explains regional limitations as to where bus companies or taxi drivers can take you to, so cross-state borders. It's also quite often you'll scarcely be aware that there are any state border checks, it's only at some borders that I've really noticed that there's a booth and the drivers have to stop etc. And of course that company is not going to pay it for you, why would they.

The finesses of it I don't know about, not being Indian nor living there, but I do think this is all very common. Whether that quoted price makes sense I similarly can't tell you (could be helpful to some to know how it comes out in the overall quoted price, indeed?), and these taxes will just depend on that state's regulations, I do believe, just as their other taxes and Maximum Retail Prices etc. will vary, again as far as I know.

Not sure if Goa levies entry tax on private vehicles not registered in Goa.

If a commercial vehicle enters another state they have to pay a road tax and an entry tax. This depends on the size of the vehicle and number of days spent in that state.
