Chennai, Jan 14 (KNN) With the aim to promote electric vehicles in the state, the Tamil Nadu government has extended 100 per cent exemption of road tax for EVs till December 31, 2025.

It has extended the relaxation for both transport and non-transport e-vehicles registered in the state, said a G.O. issued by K Phanindra Reddy, Additional Chief Secretary, Home Transport department on Friday.


Earlier, the state government had granted 100 per cent relaxation  between November 3, 2020 and December 31, 2022.
