SRINAGAR, Jan 18: Process of re-registration of fifteen years old vehicles which was put on hold post August 5 in Jammu and Kashmir will resume in a week or two, Akramullah Tak, Regional Transport Officer (RTO) Kashmir said today.
“Re-registration of fifteen years old vehicles will be started afresh in Jammu and Kashmir. We are waiting for the formal order from Civil Secretariat to come. Process will resume in a week or two,” RTO Kashmir told ‘Kashmir Times’.
Refuting rumours that government has banned re-registration of vehicles whose life will expire in January 2020 following Centre’s decision to repeal the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and split of erstwhile state into two Union Territories on August 5 last year, Tak said that no such order has been issued by the government.
RTO Kashmir said the process of document renewal was halted because the government has charged nine percent levy on registration of new vehicles across India and the Jammu and Kashmir UT government is mulling options regarding fifteen years old vehicles.
“It’s not because the state has been converted into UT, it is because the government has levied nine percent on registration of new vehicles,” he added.
People complained that they frequently visit RTO office for renewal of registration of their vehicles. However, they are told that registration of 15 years old vehicles may not be extended following centers August 5 decision on Jammu and Kashmir.
Pertinently the process of renewal of documents of fifteen years old vehicles was halted after the state was converted into two Union Territories following abrogation of the special constitutional position of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 last year.
