AMC takes its Vehicle Tax Payment System into the digital era

The AMC has made a significant stride towards modernizing its vehicle tax payment system. In an effort to streamline this process, vehicle dealers will now be responsible for facilitating tax payments online. This development ensures that vehicle dealers receive their tax payment receipts on the same day, eliminating the common delays associated with offline payments.

Under this new system, dealers are required to upload their invoices for tax payment. In cases where discrepancies are identified, appropriate action will be taken against the dealer, including the potential suspension of their account. This move is aimed at increasing efficiency and transparency in the vehicle tax payment process.
