The main objective of the study is to prepare a comprehensive documentation of taxes and user charges on transport sectors in India. The existing complex tax regime adds to the inefficient delivery of transport services which also suffer from various other policy distortions. The second key objective of this study is to evaluate gains to the economy when delivery of the transport services becomes relatively efficient through removing tax and other policy distortions.
