Junta to charge three-fold increase in vehicle registration tax


Nay Pyi Taw, 12 September

The military council’s Road Transportation Administration Department declared on 8 September that the vehicle registration fee would be increased by three times.

According to the instruction letter of the Road Transportation Administration Department, the current vehicle registration fees are no longer appropriate for today, the increase in the basic salary and the increase in the price of the vehicles have led the department to plan to raise the vehicle registration fees.

The military council has planned to increase the vehicle registration fee by three times from the previous rate and has instructed the Road Transportation Administration Departments in the regions and states, including Nay Pyi Taw, to revise the report on other fees that should be prepared and submit them before September 13.

The department plans to increase the charge from 100,000 kyats to 300,000 kyats for model year differences, and from 100,000 kyats to 300,000 kyats for weight differences up to three tons, and from 2,000,000 kyats to 600,000 kyats for vehicles over three tons.

The military council has recommended increasing the fines from 500,000 to 1000,000 kyats if the body coaches of nonindustrial zone-produced vehicles are modified and from 50,000 – 100 000 to 150,000 to 300,000 kyats if those of industrial zone-produced vehicles are changed.

Initial vehicle registration fees and vehicle inspection fees will be increased from 40,000 kyats to 130,000 kyats for large vehicles, from 20,000 kyats to 65,000 kyats for small vehicles, and from 20,000 kyats to 50,000 kyats for motorcycles and electric vehicles.

There is criticism among drivers about the increase in vehicle registration fees, amid the current rising fuel prices, difficulties in travel due to the fighting, and a halt in the flow of goods.

Than Lwin Times tried to reach military spokesperson General Zaw Min Tun about the increase in vehicle registration fees, but he has not yet responded.
