Goa: The cabinet on Monday granted approval to the Goa, Daman and Diu Motor Vehicle Tax (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020, exempting payment of road tax during March-September, 2020, for all commercial vehicles operating in the state.Chief minister Pramod Sawant told reporters that most commercial vehicles did not ply from March 1 owing to the Covid-19 pandemic and consequent restrictions, and that their owners would not have to cough up a penalty or interest for not paying road tax. Owners who did pay road tax during the specified period would have those amounts carried forward, he said.
