Folks

Has anybody driven into TN from karnataka and knows how long the queues are to pay the RTO tax? I'm presuming the tax has to be paid by both chauffeur-driven and self-driven cars. Right?

Also do you have to come out of the car to pay the tax or sit in and you pass a toll-booth kinda thing to show all your papers?

Thx

Why would there be a tax on a private vehicle? There is an entry tax on commercial number plate (taxi / yellow plate) cars for sure.

Sorry I meant that I'll be renting - either with a driver or self-drive. My concern with self-drive is the process of paying the tax. If someone can explain their experience at the RTO booths, that'll be great. I also cannot find any online options to pre-pay this tax

The process to pay in India is that you park the car by the side of the road as close to the booth as possible, get out of it, and get a receipt after paying cash (I haven't done this in TN though, but in north india).

Of course the real process is to not pay anything till stopped by a cop and then pretend that you're going over the border to attend a wedding and will be back the next day

As far as the Rented Cars are concerned, it will take just 2-3 minutes to get the permit. The normal crowded check post is not of RTOs but of Sales Tax Department. RTO Check post are crowd free.
