ONLINE TAX PAYMENTS – PARIVAHAN SYSTEM
In an effort to cut down on travelling time, waiting time, and any other annoying situations that result in manual service automotive related applications, online processes have been introduced by the Ministry of Road Transport (MoRTH). This extensive Government e-governance project is called the Parviahan System which allows users to make applications online for service online tax payments such as:
• Vehicle Registration Applications.
• Driving Licence Applications.
• Other Applications to E-Services in other Indian States.
In Rajasthan, the Government Transport Department has developed the Parivahan online accessibility so that many services can be checked and applications requested online by citizens. These online services, should in time, reduce the need for inter-state border checkpoints which do provide assistance with the collection of taxes for various vehicles. These border points also interact with tax collection from vehicles registered in other states.
With the high emphasis, on a well-organized and faultless system, Rajasthan’s Transport Department has made this a twenty-four times seven (24 x 7) online road tax payment tax service that can also be used by vehicles registered outside the state of Rajasthan.
As long as the vehicle owners from other states outside of Rajasthan, commercial or passenger, have access to an authorized internet online banking system, they can benefit from using the online tax payment system.

Step 3. Internet Banking Site: When all the application details have been completed users will be forwarded by the Parivahan link to the internet banking site where the required amount due to be paid can be sent to the relevant bank.
Step 4. System Generated Receipt: When the payment procedure is completed the system will issue a receipt which can be printed by the user. This receipt does not have to be printed immediately as the system has been set up to allow users to print it later. To print later all users have to do is enter the vehicle registration number in the print tax receipt area.

In circumstances where a mistake is made, and the tax is paid twice, the extra additional amount will be refunded to the user. This feature has been added to the Parivahan system following user feedback surveys.
The PDF link below provides details and a copy of the Parivahan application form:
Note: Obviously the tax paid validity if for a specific period of time as detailed in the application form. Should users, be operating vehicles, within the time-frame relevant to the application form there is no need to make another tax payment. It is important that the payment receipt should always be kept in a safe place just in case there is an inspection, and the receipt is required as part of the mandatory inspection.
Should a person, be found operating a vehicle without the obligatory and mandatory tax, a fine of four times the tax amount not paid will be applied.
