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.

Hi, I have a Maruti Wagon R of 2012 model bought and registered in Mumbai. Recently shifted it to Bhubaneswar (Odisha). I have got the reqd NOC from Mumbai RTO.
Pls guide me on the following as it is a case of interstate movement.
1. Since Maruti Wagon R ex-showroom price was Rs. 3.86 Lacs (i.e. Less than Rs. 10 lacs) and it is already 7 years old, do i have to pay any road tax in Bhubaneswar.
2. I contacted an agent at Bhubaneswar, he says yes road tax is to be paid @ 6% on the invoice value for the remaining 8 years (life time is 15 years. 7 years already gone).
3. Is there any "Other state registration charge" of Rs.1500 levied. I don't understand why this is reqd as I have got the NOC from Mumbai RTO and now it is a normal registration at Bhubaneswar.
4. While registering a car is there any inspection charge of Rs. 400 also at Bhubaneswar.

5 years road tax for Hyundai - i10 - Sportz 1.2 expired on 19th January 2019. The car is registered in Calcutta, West Bengal having the registration No. WB06A 2264.
What'll be the tax I need to pa, in case I want to pay it for 1 year or 2 years, whichever is possible?
Whether it'll attract any penalty for not paying before the expiry date? If yes, what's the rate?
Can I make on-line payment? If yes, furnish the website, else advise the other modes of making the tax payment!
