Disclaimer Though have tried to put in correct figures, still the figures are subject to change and could not be 100% Authenticate due to manual error.
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

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%
I have rechecked my invoice, I can clearly see , that ex showroom price is 5,76,000 on invoice , whereas , the road tax is charged on 6,11,000
The dealer has done good job to prepare , the invoice, played a very good game to fool me ,, I want to take legal action against them, can you give me your email address , I want to forward you my invoice copy and tax receipt , to confirm the same. Also, u can mail me on , email@example.com

I am not having any details on sale transfer from commercial to private number except this that - entire re-registration needs to be done again
The commercial number needs to be cancelled by rto and further will be re-registered as private number based on assessed depreciated value by the rto officer.
The process is much easier - if done within same city - but Thane & Mumbai fall under separate rto jurisdiction w.r.t octroi tax also - suggest to contact local rto office for exact details

I had bought a car in my company's name under a lease agreement hence had paid higher road tax. Now the car has been transferred in my name. Is there a way to seek refund from the RTO for the extra road tax paid - since the road tax rates for corproate registrations and individual registrations are different. If yes, requesting you plz share the procedure.
Hello Mrs A saksena,
Am not 100% sure, but to most probable estimates - it seems much likely possible to claim for refund, the claim, if any approved however can only be done in favor of the company (original owner of the car - who paid the road tax) and not the individual (second hand car buyer) to pursue with rto.
Suggest to contact a local rto agent or RTO Office with Form 16 along with details of original tax paid, original registration date, copy of transferred RC etc for further info

Hello Ankit - is it Euro - III Vehicle, reason Euro IV emission norms were introduced in 2010 and any vehicle having euro III - now can not be registered in delhi - as per guidelines and process note. Suggest to contact a rto agent for assistance on it.
Too add on - by saying - "any vehicle having euro III - now can not be registered in delhi" - means registering a new Delhi number (which may pertain to inter-state transfer or registering a new BS-III car)
Old cars - which have already been registered in delhi (been euro - ii / iii) can well be sold and transferred as they are not new registration and only ownership transfer is taking place
I am living in ghaziabad and purchased a Delhi Number scooter.

3. I am residing in ghaziabad
I have recently relocated to Mumbai and I plan to get my car (Accent) from Delhi to Mumbai for a period of about 1 year, post which I plan to buy a new car. I had the following queries.
1. Can I just drive in Mumbai just with the NOC from Delhi RTO without registering my car in Mumbai? (I have seen quite a few cars with non Maharashtra registration around)
2. How long is the NOC valid for?
3. I have heard the cops in Mumbai harass out station registered cars. Is there a way around it as it is expensive to re-register?
4. And last, if I do plan to re register my car in Mumbai, how much on average will I have to pay? My car is a Hyundai Accent 2008 model
Appreciate any help in this regard.
