Private bus owners’ association demanded government

GOA: The private bus owners’ association has demanded that the government waive passenger tax and road tax for one year. “We had not deliberately kept our vehicles non-operational. The decision to shut transport and RTOs was of the central government. Even though we resumed operations after restrictions were eased, buses were not running to full capacity and we were losing income. With such circumstances in place, how are we to pay tax?” president of the association, Sudeep Tamanhkar said.

He pointed out that assistant directors of transport (ADTs) have been given the responsibility to collect tax but they also have the power to waive taxes. He said that they must hold a meeting and waive the tax for the buses running in the state. “If the Punjab and Orissa governments can do it, why can’t Goa government?” he said.
