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.

Sir,
My name is Bhaskar. I’m working in Defence Navy,Mumbai. I bought my car from Kerala and it is Kerala registered and I’m using it here. Since I’m a central government employee my job is a transferable one.I’m hoping that I would get transferred back to Kerala within few months. So should I re-register my car to Maharashtra state or can I drive it as it is?

The tax for registration on LMV is 9% on petrol driven vehicles and 5% for CNG vehicles,as I have repaid at 9% to RTO as my vehicle was bought in 2007, due to different reasons i had to repay the registration tax to RTO.

HI ALL

The taxation is based upon ex showroom (including vat?) What happens when discounts are given by the manufacturer or Dealer ?

example :- i20 Elite EXshowroom inv shows Rs .75700.00 but we have got discount of Dealer Ex showroom INV as Rs.500000.00?

Kindly confirm any problem will happen from RTO audit?

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

My question is how would the RTO know that the vehicle has been kept in another State, for a period > 12 months
