» Vehicle Emission Norms: At present in 2015 - a car needs to satisfy in BS-IV Emission norms in Tier 1 Cities and BS-III Emission Norms in Tier 2 Cities. All Cars Manufactured from Jan 2005 onwards meets BS-III and manufactured post April 2010 meets BSIV Norms. You need to check on same before taking your vehicle to other state

Re-Registration Process

Step - 1 Apply in for NOC

You need to apply for an NOC

» Self Declaration Affidavit on Rs 10 Stamp Paper - duly attested by Notary that no fine, offence on vehicle and all documents are genuine with your address and purpose of NOC as transfer or Else NOC from Traffic Police for No Dues and No Offence Pending against Vehicle

Owner Experience on State RC Transfer

RC Transfer from Bangalore to Kolkata (Courtsey: Suman Paul)

Process in Bangalore

1. Get the NOC from police commissioner's office for traffic clearance - got it instantly within 5 minutes
2. Get a pollution check certificate
3. Get bank hypothecation clearance certificate
4. Apply to RTO to get RC smart card against old RC book - it came to my address by speed post in 21 days as promised
5. Along with all above documents and insurance copy - submit to RTO with a filled up form for NOC
6. Submit another filled up form to RTO office for ownership change at the new location with new owner's identity proof
7. Submit one empty envelop with stamps and home address written on it along with the forms to RTO

I did not pay a single rupee for any of the above. All the jobs were done perfectly on time as promised by the officials at RTO office. I never followed up with anybody by any means. Extremely satisfying experience at Bangalore RTO.


 

Further process specified by Bangalore RTO

1. Take the car to Kolkata along with all NOC and original documents
2. Immediately report to the RTO at Kolkata and they will verify all the documents and give a Migration certificate with which the car can be driven there for 45 days legally
3. Submit all the documents along with filled up specified forms to Kolkata RTO
4. Kolkata RTO will tell the amount of Road Tax payable on the basis of depreciated car value
5. Pay the Tax and collect the Tax paid receipt
6. RTO will issue a new RC smart card with new owner's name
7. Bring the Tax paid receipt copy to Bangalore and apply to RTO office for Tax refund
8. Bangalore RTO will verify with Kolkata RTO and refund the over-paid tax amount through bank transfer to my account

Absolutely clean methodical and logical process.

With all the documents and the car we four set off to Kolkata by road for a three days trip. This is another story for another day.

After reaching Kolkata, we tried to do the steps exactly how it was told in Bangalore RTO and that point of time we actually felt that the car is transferred to a new place called Kolkata.


 

Chronicle in Kolkata RTO

1. Many desks in RTO said that it can not be done for various reasons - all were baseless
2. Find some connection through known people just to start the process
3. Repeated visits to RTO just submit documents
4. Submitted documents one day and visiting after 2 weeks, nothing moved, so withdrawn all the original documents
5. Appointed one agent who ran away after couple of weeks
6. Appointed one more new agent who charged a bomb
7. After many visits to RTO, finally it got done
8. We paid road tax of Rs. 40000 which were calculated based on the new car value and not as per depreciated value - RTO said this is the rule of west bengal government to collect more tax
9. RTO charged Rs. 7000 as fine of late submission of documents - pointless to even think about it
10. RTO charged Rs. 5500 for audio system in the car - heard about it for the first time in life
11. Our dear agent charged Rs. 19000 to get all these things done
12. After a good six months of effort, the car got changed to my mother's name and have recieved the new RC smart card
13. Yet to get the audio tax paid receipt
14. The car is legally ready to drive on west bengal roads now

I shall be thankful if you can clarify regarding refund of one time tax paid on inter state transfer of car
One has to pay tax at the RTO of the state where the vehicle is transferred. After paying that would the tax paid at the tranfreror state be refunded?
The vehicle was purchased in 2010.

Is it mandatory to represent the vehicle for inspection to the RTO officials, when applied for NOC?
I drove down my car from Mumbai to my home town, Guwahati & left the car at home. Have applied for NOC, through an agent and waiting for the same, the agent's said the official at RTO wanted to inspect the car.
Would highly appreciate if you could answer my query.

Thanks & Regards.
