<p>For the time being, cars from other states that enter Shimla won’t have to pay the planned green tax since the mobile application that would have collected the levy is still being developed.</p>

<p>The Shimla Municipal Corporation (SMC) made the decision to start collecting green fees from automobiles from other states that enter Himachal Pradesh via a digital application on April 1 in an effort to protect the environment.</p>
<p>At the most recent budget meeting, the MC said that starting with the next fiscal year, green fees from cars traveling from neighboring states into the state capital will be digitally collected. With this in mind, the corporation had targeted an income of around Rs 10 crore.</p>
<p>SMC Mayor Surinder Chauhan said that the tax will not be enforced in the town for some time since the corporation is still in discussions with several businesses over the method of collecting the charge.</p>
<p>He explained that the application was being built and that when it was finished, the tax would be collected.</p>
<p>In Shimla, the green fee collection has been suggested for a long time, and the corporation began collecting it a few years ago. Nevertheless, the green tax was dropped since it caused severe traffic bottlenecks at the town’s entrances.</p>
