Bhubaneswar: BS III vehicle owner who had bought two wheelers and cars before April 1 but could not get it registered due to server issues can now heave a sigh of relief. Offline registration has begun for the dealers at the regional transport offices.
The state transport commissioner recently issued an order to accept tax manually after buyers of BS III vehicles on March 29, 30 and 31 faced issues with registration. But BS III vehicles sold after the deadline of April 1 will not be registered.
Over 4,000 vehicles got sold at much discount in the state capital after the Supreme Court announced ban of BS III vehicles from April 1. But around 2,000 vehicles sold here during the three days could not be registered online since the dealers selling the vehicles could not pay tax online owing to slow server.
Many buyers had to run after dealers and to transport office for getting their vehicles registered now. But the order from the transport commissioner has come to rescue to the vehicle owners. As per transport department sources, around 10,000 vehicles sold across the state from March 29 to 31 are yet to be registered.
