New Delhi: The Centre has amended the guidelines for excise duty concession to disabled people for buying vehicles . A notification in this regard was issued by the ministry of heavy industries on April 21 and May 2.The new guidelines have also done away with the manufacturer’s certificate necessary for availing the concession; a certificate by the district road transport officer would now suffice.
TOI had reported on April 4 how Maruti Suzuki India Ltd had denied the concession to Dr Satendra Singh, a teacher at University College of Medical Sciences, on the grounds that it’s allowed only in the case of a left-leg disability. Singh was disabled in the right leg.
