FAQs Queries on Road Tax Refund

Q. If Buying a Used Car and registering in New State will Tax Refund be applicable ?

A. No - Tax Refund is not applicable and is thus not payable to Second Owner (or subsequent owners). Only, the Original Owner can apply for Tax Refund. In case you are Second Owner and buying such car for re-registration in Other state - the Tax refund is not applicable 

This also is applicable even in Company Cases - who give car to employees for usage and later on ask them to buy back. Been the employee would be second owner as per RC - the Tax as originally paid by the Company will not be payable.

The Refund Guidelines - Road Tax is subject to be refunded

> Only in name of original owner who has initially paid in road tax

> Provided - that the original Owner who registers the vehicles, takes NOC for shifting vehicle in other State on his/her name and re-register the vehicle in his / her name.

Thus - For refund of Tax - the Original Owner name should be same as in First State and Second State

 

Q. Is there any Time Limit for applying Tax Refund

A. Yes - but timelines varies from State to State. For Instance in Maharashtra - RTO can decline in Tax Refund application - if same submitted after 6 months of Obtaining in State Transfer NOC. So - better to check

3. If RTO Observe that vehicle is in such a condition that it is incapable of being used or its use in a public place would constitute a danger to the public

4. If a registering authority is satisfied that a motor vehicle has been permanently removed out of India

5. If the Car Ownership Documents at a later date found Fake or with Forgery

A, Road Tax will be refunded on Pro rata basis of 15 yrs - basis registration date - till date of application for refund. For instance - if you applied for same after 5 yrs then approx 66% of original road tax paid will be refunded. The Pro Rata will be done based on Road Tax Amount. State MCD Parking Fees, Smart Card registration fees is not refunded

 

Q. Is Tax Refund applicable in all States. Is Tax Refund Process Online

Hi, My car's Life time Road Tax was paid by initial owner - A at Hyderabad. It is 5 years now from the data of original purchase by the initial owner. In year 2017, this car ownership was transferred to my name at Hyderabad. Later in Feb. 2018, I sold it to B who has registered this car at Chennai.
Since I am the previous owner of the car, can I request for Refunt of Life time road tax at Hyderabad? If I apply will the refund reach to my name or to the Original purchase Initial Owner -A or to my name?

Hi I dont think you will get refund. Tax refund is applicable only if the re-registration is in the name of the same owner as it was in earlier state.

I moved to Bengaluru in 2016 from Gurgaon, Haryana and paid up road tax/life time tax assessed for my Haryana registration car at the local RTO here in Bengaluru at the height of crackdown on outside state vehicles (right before the stay by Karnataka HC became available). However, I have not got my car re-registered here in Bengaluru while paying up the road tax.

Now that I am moving back to NCR, I wish to know if there is a way for me to claim the life time tax paid here in Bengaluru. One of the agents said that a refund is available only for cars registered in Karnataka moving out of state. This did not seem right and looking for advice to plan my action.

And very next month i have paid require Road tax in Jamshedpur RTO (Jharkhand) , Since then my difficult time started to take new registration no from Jamshedpur RTO..now more than one year gone i m yet to get new registration no from Jamshedpur RTO, every time I have been told that jamshedpur RTO had sent letter to Panvel RTO but they have not replied to their letter after sending reminder..finaly i took responsibility to make regrously followup and finally my Address has been registered in Jamshedpur RTO in the month of March-17.jamshedpur RTO had tried to make me fool by saying that till the time they will not receive reply from Panvel RTO they will not change my Addrss and will not allot new registration no.in the month of Marvh-17 I went to commissioner of RTO and shouted then finally they checked in the system online and verified that my no C was genuine.it took 3 sec to check and they made my life miserable for almost a year..since Maharashtra has online no C check process so for can check through online from their system.but it took one year..how ridiculous is this.
Now after changing my Addrss in 3rd book they instructed me to come after 6 month to get new registration no from Jamshedpur RTO.

Now 1.5 years has passed and they are going to issue new registration no for my car soon.

Now my question is since 1.5 year passed can i apply for my refund from Panvel RTO.
Or where can I complain for this as this is just trying to make customers life into miserable by both the RTO.

Help me with email I'd it any option where I can complain for the same.
