Benefits That A Physically Disabled Person Gets For a New Car


Recommended Posts

 

Hey guys,

 

This is a discussion thread on the benefits that a physically disabled person gets while buying a new car.

 

This might be useful for those having very little knowledge over the particular topic.

 

Recently I've seen one of my father's assistant buy a Maruti Suzuki Celerio and got it customised as per his needs.

 

After doing some research on the topic, I found that Ford India is offering some additional benefits for disabled people on Figo, EcoSport and Endeavour all variants which the person is not aware of...

 

Many people who are not aware of such things end up paying high. So, I think it'd be good if people here spread some more knowledge and inputs on the benefits Government offer, manufacturers offer, and the requirements needed which will benefit the needy and help them discover the places that they dream...

Nice thread @Krish. I am sure many lack knowledge on this and I would like to throw in some light which I am aware of... Correct me if I'm wrong.

The exemption in Excise is available for sure to the physically handicap persons only if they buy a car specially designed for handicap. 

The procedure to be followed is that the person will have to apply directly to the manufacturing company (through a local dealer). That particular person will be personally called for an interview and the car will be modified suitably for him/her. 

RTO will register the car and issue the exclusive driving license only if a certificate from Chief Medical Officer is issued specifying the disability of the person that, he/she will however be able to drive that particular car.

As far as I know have been told, we can normally buy a car from the dealer (any car), register it as an invalid carriage by RTA, get it modified (there are many reputed people who does that).

For all these, one need to have a PD certificate given by the medical board.

I didn't go too deep into this thing, please correct me if I'm wrong anywhere.

Here is the name of the garage that does modifications in Hyderabad and which is favorite among people.

    • Hyderabad to Gottamgutta, A short weekend getaway..
      Distance: 120 kms.  Road condition: Excellent (upto Zaheerabad) You divert from the highway towards Chincholi forest reserve near the Mahindra factory exit. The road is a single lane road and through the farms. 
        We started from Miyapur around 7 AM in 3 cars. Packed all the food and water. 
      Note: Be sure to carry your shoes as there would be a short trek to reach the banks of the lake. 
      I will let the pictures do the talking.   The road towards the Chincholi forest after getting down the NH 65

      The weather was good as the sun shone gently on us that morning


      The entry gate of the Chincholi forest was very welcome


      Though it was a mud track beyond the gate, the drive was smooth and fun.

       
      The track will is pretty narrow to just fit in 1 car at a time



      Our first pit stop was a small temple enroute amidst the Chincholi forest

      Sharing a road trip experience in Tesla, will be update this log on daily basis(Three days trip). 
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA.
      I will be sharing road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.

       
      Car Specifications:
      Range: 600 kilometers per charge (EPA) 0-100: 3.8 Seconds Top speed is limited to 250km/hr  Supports upto Level-3 charging : 250KW/hr Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      A day before the trip
       
      Planning:
      Road trips in electric cars need some planning when compared to traditional(ICE) cars. 
       
      STEP 1: 
      You can use Tesla website to plan your trip, Select the car that you are planning to take on a drive Check out the website for fun : https://www.tesla.com/trips SF to LA has close to 10+ Tesla super chargers(Distance : 600+ kilometers)
       
      STEP 2: 
      Calculate total charging time required, you can check Tesla website to understand your trip plan Total charging time required on a 616 kilometers trip is 55 minutes Details given above are in ideal conditions: 90% charge before you start, follow speed limits, no opposite wind, no cold weather(below 0C), no snow storm etc In real world, range varies, this is similar to our ARAI mileage Tesla calculates/displays range based on EPA(ARAI), add 15~20% range error All the Tesla Chargers are located close to some of the best food courts/restrooms  Total saving for the trip when compared with gas cars is 52$

    • New e-Pass Requirements by States (March 2021 onwards)
      Hi all,
      I wanted to create the list of states re-imposing e-pass requirements to travel, including  by road.
      Here's what I found. Please add to the list and also once it is lifted, please update the thread.
      I hope it will be helpful
       
      Tamil Nadu
      Dated 9-Mar-2021
      All passengers coming by road and by flight to Tamil Nadu need an e-pass, the state government has decided, in a slew of new rules for domestic and international passengers coming to the state. All passengers from states, except Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Puducherry, need an e-pass to enter the state.
