Indian State Governments Agree to Issue National Permit

Indian State governments have agreed to issue a national permit, giving up their powers to issue separate transport permits, making inter-state transport of goods cheaper and hassle-free.

According to the new rule, agreed to on Friday by the states transport ministers, transporters would now have to pay an annual fee of Rs 15,000 per truck for moving across the country,

The new national permit regime will strengthen the efforts to obtain a national market for goods and services through the proposed goods and services tax or GST that seeks to create a seamless pan-India market.

“Transporters would save about Rs 10,000 annually per truck on account of change in the permit regime,” Indian Foundation of Transport Research and Training (IFTRT) co-ordinator SP Singh said.
