Section 47 of Motor Vehicle Act

There have been instances in the past (even though few) including high end luxury cars like Porsche been impounded as resident of the state have taken registration mark of another state. This is due to the fact of Section 47 of Motor Vehicle Act, due to which vehicle owner had to apply for registration of his home state by again paying for RTO Charges.

Section 47 States : When a motor vehicle registered in one State has been kept in another State, for a period > 12 months, the owner of the vehicle need to apply in respective local RTO in State for the assignment of a new registration mark of that state

However its exception in some states, For example: Section 3 of Karnataka Motor Vehicle Act says that if you owe a vehicle in state for 6 months or more, the vehicle owner need to pay applicable Road Tax, and required to get the vehicle re-registered with Karnataka number. So - its advisable to check on, with local state laws - if you planning to move your car to a different state.


Press Release (Ministry of Road Transport & Highways)

Excerpt from Press Release on 35th Meeting of TDC (Transport Development Council) held in October 2013 - Release ID - 100216 stating - resolution passed in the meeting

- On 2-wheelers, on interstate movement of vehicles permanently, full tax will be levied in new state if vehicle is less than 2 year old with refund from original state, but no tax in new state will be levied if vehicle is more than 2 year old. Whereas, on interstate movement of vehicle temporarily, no tax will be levied. 

On cars and LMV, on interstate movement of vehicles. 

- Full tax in new state will be levied if vehicle is less than 2 year old with refund from original state. 

- Tax will be levied on luxury car / LMV (having sale price of Rs. 10 Lakhs or more) at a discounted rate depending on age of car with refund from original state. 

- Refund and tax calculation structure will be common across the states with suitable common discount rates. 


Documents for Car Registration

Basic and Most Important Document is Address Proof.  Some States ask for 1 copy of address and some even ask for 2 copies of Address Proof

However - Address Proof means a Valid Address Proof as per RTO Office definition - a residence proof document as issued by Centre / State or Utility Bills. 

Some of them are :- Electricity Bill, Water Bill, Election Card, Aadhaar UID Card, 6 Month Old Nationalized Bank Account Statement having Address, Passport, Telephone Bill Copy of BSNL or MTNL. LIC Policy Copy etc

Along with it is required Valid ID Proof - which could be one of above having Photograph or Driving License, PAN Card copy etc.

    My name is Bhaskar. I’m working in Defence Navy,Mumbai. I bought my car from Kerala and it is Kerala registered and I’m using it here. Since I’m a central government employee my job is a transferable one.I’m hoping that I would get transferred back to Kerala within few months. So should I re-register my car to Maharashtra state or can I drive it as it is?

    Satish Kulkarni Friday, 04 March 2016

    The tax for registration on LMV is 9% on petrol driven vehicles and 5% for CNG vehicles,as I have repaid at 9% to RTO as my vehicle was bought in 2007, due to different reasons i had to repay the registration tax to RTO.

    HI ALL

    The taxation is based upon ex showroom (including vat?) What happens when discounts are given by the manufacturer or Dealer ?

    example :- i20 Elite EXshowroom inv shows Rs .75700.00 but we have got discount of Dealer Ex showroom INV as Rs.500000.00?

    Kindly confirm any problem will happen from RTO audit?

    When a motor vehicle registered in one State has been kept in another State, for a period > 12 months, the owner of the vehicle need to apply in respective local RTO in State for the assignment of a new registration mark of that state

    My question is how would the RTO know that the vehicle has been kept in another State, for a period > 12 months
