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.

 

Press Release (Ministry of Road Transport & Highways)

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.

Hi,
I am the second owner of a car. When i moved from Pune to Bangalore, i got NOC from Pune RTO and got it transferred to Karnataka. I paid the tax in Karnataka. When i approach the RTO Pune for refund through an agent, they are saying that the refund will be given in the name of the 1st owner only.
The car is registered in my name, i have taken the NOC and i have paid the tax in Karnataka. How do i get the refund in my name? Kindly advice.

Hi Gagan

I bought my car in 2009 at Kolkata. The road tax paid for was for a period of 5 years and it expired last week.

I have now got transferred to Hyderabad. I intend to drive down from Kolkata to Hyderabad in my car.

Since the road tax has expired already, do I have to do the renewal in Kolkata fisrt, and then pay the tax again in Hyderabad ? Or is it possible for me to pay the tax directly in Hyderabad.

Can you please advise ?

Regards
Abhinay

@ arpo - Its generally done on depreciated value as assessed by RTO Officer (general slab is 6% to 8%). Road Tax is 9% for Petrol, 11% for Diesel
@ meg - as long as you have address proof of Haryana, there are no legal implication, you can very well drive and owe the car in NCR
