Excise duty is a tax that is levied on goods produced or sold in the country. Excise duty is sometimes also called Central Value Added Tax (CVAT) because it is levied by the Central Government. If you want to buy a car, the regular excise duty on various model is stipulated between 16% to 24%. But if a person with disability wants to buy a car for herself — she can claim concession on excise duty.

Persons with orthopedic disability can buy car at a concessional rate of 8%.

Excise duty of 8% is applicable on cars:

  1. being able to be driven by the person with physical disability; or
  2. which has been suitably designed to be able to be driven by person with physical disability; or
  3. meant for persons with physical disability

Government of India issued a notification in this regard on 14 June 1999 and again in March 2007. In order to claim concession on car excise duty, a certificate needs to be produced to the car dealer.

How to Get Car Excise Duty Concession Certificate

This certificate is issued to the person with disability by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce. A Deputy Secretary or Director level official can issues this certificate.
