Shimla MC approved Green Tax

The Shimla Municipal Corporation passed a resolution for the imposition of ‘Green tax’ on vehicles entering the city. The resolution would be sent to the government for approval.

The tax amount would be Rs 100 for two-wheelers, Rs 200 for cars and jeeps, Rs 300 for middle segment and utility vehicles and Rs 500 for buses and trucks. The permit would be valid for a week. The corporation hopes to generate an income of Rs 6 crore annually from the tax to be collected at four barriers set up by the SMC at entry points. The barriers would be auctioned and outsourced for collection of the tax.
