Orders - Issued
Home (Transport - 1) Department
From the Transport Commissioner, Chennai letter
No.D1/21874/07 dated 11.04.07 and dated 23.05.07.
The Transport Department carries out various functions including
registration of vehicles, grant of permits, issue of driving and conductor
licences, collection of tax and fees under the Tamil Nadu Motor Vehicles
Taxation Act 1974 and Motor Vehicles Act 1988 and Rules made there under.
2. In his letters read above, the Transport Commissioner has stated
that the computerization in Transport Department has been already started
and going on in a phased manner. Presently third phase is nearing to
completion. In all the computerized Regional Transport Offices and Unit
Offices, important transactions such as issue of Learners Licences, Driving
Licences, Registration of vehicles, Permit, etc are being completed and
despatched to the applicants then and there. These systems once introduced
with huge capital investment, would have to be maintained, which also
requires funds. Though these services are rendered on a fast track basis, no
separate fee other than the fee prescribed either under the Central Motor
Vehicle Rules, 1989 or under Tamil Nadu Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 for the
transaction is now collected.
3. The Government of Andhra Pradesh have issued orders for
collection of service charges besides normal fees prescribed in respect of
transaction undertaken in Transport Department of those States. The
Transport Commissioner has therefore suggested to bring a similar concept
of levy of service charge and to levy service charges for, transactions
undertaken/services rendered in Transport Department in this State also. He
has proposed various rates of service charges in respect of various
transactions done in Transport Department and requested that the service
charges suggested for collection may be allotted to Transport Department for
the creation / development of infrastructures, improving the quality of
Services such as for the construction of buildings, provision and expansion of
link up facilities (computerization) and to provide sufficient vehicles for
mobility, communication facilities, etc.,.
4. The Government have examined the proposal independently and in
detail. Computerized services and e-governance initiatives for the benefit of
the consumers to render quick and hassle-free services in the Transport
Department has been implemented by the Government at a substantial
financial outlay. These initiatives have resulted in drastic reduction in time
and effort in the issue of Learners Licence, Driving Licence, Registration of
Vehicles, issue of Permit, etc., when compared to the traditional method. If
the vast infrastructure has to be maintained to sustain the effective hassle-
free services, it is absolutely essential to collect Service Charges. Hence the
Government have decided to accept the proposal of the Transport
Commissioner. Accordingly, the Government approve the rate of service
charges proposed by the Transport Commissioner, as specified in the
Annexure appended to the G.O. and accord permission to the Transport
Commissioner to collect the same.
5. The Transport Commissioner shall deposit the service charges to be
collected under the following head of account:-
“0041 00 Taxes on Vehicles – 800 other Receipts- AH Collection
of Service Charges for the Services rendered to the Transport
Department. ( DPC 0041 00 800 AH 0001)”.
6. The Commissioner of Transport is the Estimating, Reconciling and
Controlling Authority for the above new “head of account”.
7. This order comes into force with immediate effect.
8. This order issues with the concurrence of the Finance Department
vide it’s U.O.No.631/ADS(JR) /2007 dated 05.12.2007.
