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)

Hello,

You can furnish any ID Proof (issued by Central Govt - Election Card / PAN / Passport / UID Card etc) -
It really doesnt matter if ID Proof issued in Chandigarh or Punjab or any other state for registration purpose.
What however is important is Address proof - as long as you are submitting address proof of Chandigarh (which is acceptable in RTO) - should work fine

For your second query :- check the original RC & latest insurance policy.
As its a Second Owner Car - There are no service charge, but transfer charged needs to be paid for transferring
If Owner name in RC, Insurance is matching. Engine No. Chassis no. is matching - you may safely presume that car is

For Loan - Check on HP Column in RC & Insurance. If its financed - the bank or NBFC name would be referred

Hello Gagan,

I bought a vw polo in oct-2013, which had ex-showroom of rs 6,09,000(Delhi), diesel ,,, and I was charged road tax of around Rs. 56,000 (according to receipt given by dealer for Rs. 6,09,000 ex showroom). Now my question is that, the dealer gave me an invoice of Rs. 5,76,000 (ex-showroom),, and if road tax is to be calculated on Rs. 5,76,000, than it should be around Rs. 30,000 according to slab in Delhi for Diesel cars, so what should have been charged??

Gagan Modi on Friday, 31 January 2014 06:32

Hello - Can you pl re-check on the Invoice - may be its Sale Price / Net Price / Invoice Price which could be mentioned
As per RTO Guidelines, Registration is done on the ex-showoom price.
Invoice price could however be different due to discounts or offers - but is immaterial for purpose of calculating registration cost !!

Ex- Toyota Etios G Petrol now cost 6.03 Lakh - ex-showroom Delhi, if a dealer offer some cash discounts (say rs. 10,000 as ex.) - still due to ex-showroom price exceeding 6 Lakh - registration would be done @ 7% instead of 4%

Hello Rajesh,

I am not having any details on sale transfer from commercial to private number except this that - entire re-registration needs to be done again
The commercial number needs to be cancelled by rto and further will be re-registered as private number based on assessed depreciated value by the rto officer.

The process is much easier - if done within same city - but Thane & Mumbai fall under separate rto jurisdiction w.r.t octroi tax also - suggest to contact local rto office for exact details

Hello Gagan,
I had bought a car in my company's name under a lease agreement hence had paid higher road tax. Now the car has been transferred in my name. Is there a way to seek refund from the RTO for the extra road tax paid - since the road tax rates for corproate registrations and individual registrations are different. If yes, requesting you plz share the procedure.
Thanks !
