Centre notifies National Permit rules; permit fee to fall by 50%

The all India permit fee for tourist buses is likely to fall by more than 50% of what the operators currently pay to state governments such as in Gujarat, Karntaka, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, once the Centre notifies the National Permit rules for such buses and other vehicles. This will make the travel seamless across states and reduce corruption, reports Dipak Dash in TOI.

The road transport ministry has set this process in motion to bring in the reform and has published a draft notification.

Currently, several states charge higher permit fees, yearly or per seat from tourist buses that come from other states.

The Ministry has proposed a uniform authorisation fee which will be charged by the states and there will be only "one permit fee" for all states based on the passenger capacity. The yearly permit fee for an air-conditioned bus carrying more than 23 passengers has been proposed at INR 3 lakh and INR 75,000 for an AC mini bus with 10 to 23 passeengers. The authorization fee has been proposed between INR 1,000 and INR 2,500 for all categories of tourist vehicles.
