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.
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.
Note - If looking to Buy or Sell Car, refer in RC Transfer Process explaining Documents, Process
My Wife has a santro car punjab registration and it is in punjab which will complete 15 year this December . we want to bring it to Mumbai could you please help us with the documentation and other process that will be applied at mumbai RTO
I found this info pretty useful . I hav to get my scala
.ex showroom 8.64 lacs... registered in andheri mumbai. And the tax and octroi n fees are coming to a huge amount. . So i was thinking of registering the car in my homestate of kerala. I heard u just hav to pay 11k or 12k to drive it in mumbai . But now my rto agent in mumbai says i hav to pay 11 % road tax of mumbai even if vehicle has a kerala registration. Which comes upto 98k.is it true? Or ia the agent fooling me to register in mumbai to get his cut??
Anyone who has an idea ..pls respond.
It's better to buy from Mumbai, rather than Buying in Kerala and then Bringing it in Mumbai. You will have to pay all the Taxes in Kerala, and then Again pay the Registration, Road Tax in Mumbai + not to forget the various trips and expenses of RTO in Kerala and Mumbai.
