The government of West Bengal has announced that all kinds of compressed natural gas (CNG)- operated vehicles registered from April 1, 2022 will be exempted from paying any registration fee, motor vehicle tax amongst other taxes. This will help in reducing the on-road price of several green energy operated vehicles.  The order exempting registration fee and taxes will be in effect till March 31, 2024. This is being done to reduce dependence on petrol and diesel, reduce carbon footprint and incentivise investment in CNG vehicles.
