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
Actually we don't hv a permanent address. Dealer is getting it done. permanent address is that of Delhi only.
Dear Gagan, hi, Inspite of HC ruling dealers are still asking for Parking charges ( apprx 4k) and Handling charges( apprx 6.5k) on new car purchase.is there a way out on this. some circular, guidelines to counter this, thanks, wrgds,sanjiv
Supreme Court came up heavily 2 yrs back - when one of the buyer file a PIL stating that 'Dealer Logistics Charges' as unethical
The basic crux of Petition was - Dealer can not charge anything over and above car price, registration
The Verdict as (Source:- http://indiankanoon.org/doc/81636548/)
" The respondents No.1&2 Transport Department / GNCTD while empowering the vehicle dealers to also register the vehicles are to only ensure that no service charges, commission etc. 'for such registration' are W.P.(C) No.8408/2011 Page 4 of 6 charged"
" The dealers deny the extras to be on account of providing the services of registration and claim the same to be on other accounts. The respondents No.1&2 as aforesaid have no authority to intervene in the charge by the dealers even if illegal of the said extras so long as they are not on account of commission or for providing service of registration. The said question thus becomes a question of fact to be adjudicated on a case to case basis and no general direction with respect thereto can be issued in this public interest litigation."
"We accordingly dispose of this writ petition with the direction that in the event of the respondents No.1&2 Transport Department / GNCTD receiving any complaint of any vehicle dealer charging anything extra / commission from the vehicle purchaser for providing the services of registration, the respondents No.1&2 shall enquire into the said complaint and if find any merit therein, shall take action in accordance with law against such vehicle dealers."
Dealers have changed the name and instead of 'Logistics' are now charging 'Parking fees', 'Vehicle Handling Charges', 'Stock Yard, Warehousing, Driver Charges for bring car to showroom' and etc.
There was a piblic notification - which came from Transport Department in Delhi (in December '11 - before the Supreme Court Verdict), copy enclosed herewith
However the notification states as - 'Not authorized by Manufacturer'
Dealers have now changed the name of Dubious 'Logistics charges' and termed it as 'fuel expenses, driver and parking expense, & other service related charges" in the Proforma Price List.
Also - If you visit a dealer now - he may claim that the charges constitutes as part of on road cost and welcome buyer to may even speak to manufacturer - as these are one which even a manufacturer will not deny or call it unauthorized !!!

I am Arpit , based out in Singapore now. earlier was in bangalore. Last July 2013, i have purchased a new ford figo (Diesel) on which i paid around 95k as road tax. The time, i was leaving india (Dec 2013), i have applied for transfer my vehicle from karnatka to madhya Pradesh(Home State). I got NOC as well as all required documents to get vehicle transferred as well as get registered in Madhya pradesh. Registration process in MP is in Progress.
Now my question is since i have paid life time road tax to karnataka RTO and now paying it again to Madhya Pradesh RTO (I am not concerning about registration charges,only abt Road tax). Once my vehicle is registered in MP, can i claim for a refund of Road tax from Karnataka RTO. Do we have such kind of facility or Policy?

I have done a deal of swift dzire car model 2008 (Chandigarh Number and also registered owner is of Chandigarh).
I am from Punjab doing job in Chandigarh but, dont have any ID proof of Chandigarh.
Can I still get my car registered on my name in Chandigarh city or Will I have to get NOC to get it transferred in Punjab.
My first preference is to get it registered it in Chandigarh.
Please let me know how to deal with this situation ????
My second question is that how to know whether any dues except from LOAN are pending on car like service tax or any other tax.
it is second owner of car.
Please reply fast as I have to do the full and final payment for my car.
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

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??
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%
