The Chail panchayat has imposed green tax on vehicles entering this town from other states since April 1. Since this was for the first time that such a tax was imposed in Chail, the panchayat has kept nominal fee of Rs 10, Rs 20, Rs 30 and Rs 100, respectively, for two-wheelers, vehicles having sitting capacity of five, vehicles having sitting capacity between 5 to 10 and buses having a sitting capacity of 30 to 50.

Local hoteliers have, however, opposed this move and alleged that panchayat has not consulted before imposing any such in Chail.
