Postby admin » Wed Jun 18, 2008 1:08 am

PETALING JAYA: Road tax will be reduced gradually and abolished.

Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat said the ministry was studying the possibility of abolishing road tax.

“I will bring the issue to the Cabinet, and if they agree, private vehicles will be the first to benefit,” he said.

Ong said the rebates given out in lieu of the fuel price increase was not enough to ease the people’s burden in the long term.

On June 4, the Government announced a RM200 reduction in road tax for private vehicles above 2000cc and RM50 for private motorcycles above 250cc.

Also announced were rebates of RM625 for private vehicles of 2000cc and below, and private pick-up trucks and jeeps with an engine capacity of 2500cc and below.

Rebates of RM150 will be given to private motorcycles with an engine capacity of 250cc and below.
