BRTA has allowed renewal of expired vehicle documents without penalty until December 31 next.
Fitness certificates, tax token and route permit could be updated by paying only the regular taxes or charges, said an order issued by the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA).
Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, it also allowed to renew the driving licences without penalty within the extended time.
The authority issued a gazette in this regard on July 08.
However, the BRTA said it would not offer such opportunity again in case of failure to avail it by the vehicle owners.
Many of the vehicle owners could not renew their fitness certificates and route permits due to the lockdown from March 26 to May 31.
In the budget for the current FY, the government has increased the tax on private vehicle owners.
People having 1500CC cars have to pay Tk 25,000 as advance tax from the current FY instead of earlier Tk 15,000.
