Inter State RC Transfer 

Are you looking to Move Car from 1 State and considering registering in Other State. See. 4 Important things before taking your vehicle out from your city for re-registration

  • Vehicle Hypothecation Status: If the car has Bank Hypothecation in RC - you will require Bank Inter State Transfer NOC before moving your vehicle to new state for registration purpose. Its known that some Private Banks are Flexible in issuing same and some PSU Banks do not have streamline process for same 
  • Vehicle Emission Norms: Please Check if Vehicle is BS4 (which came in 2010 onwards) or BS3, BS2. Many Cities do not allow for Re Registration of BS3 Vehicles in there states, Union Territory. 
  • Fuel Type: Specific to Delhi, NCR - Diesel Cars beyond 10 years are not allowed to be driven on road. Also, Fitness Certificate is not allowed to be renewed beyond 15 Years in Delhi, NCR
  • Costs Involved: Owner has to again pay applicable Road Tax - either at depreciated value or at depreciated road tax Slabs. This amount however can be substantial. For Instance in Hyderabad - Road Tax is at 9% for a 5 yr Old Car. So if Original Invoice Value is 5 Lakh Rs - you have to pay in Rs 45000 as Road Tax in Hyderabad. Know Road Tax Slabs

 

Vehicle Re-Registration Process

Step - 1 Apply in for NOC (in Home State)

You need to apply for an NOC for both Inter State or even Inter City (like Noida to Ghaziabad)

» Self Declaration Affidavit on Rs 10 Stamp Paper - duly attested by Notary that no fine, offence on vehicle and all documents are genuine with your address and purpose of NOC as transfer or Else NOC from Traffic Police for No Dues and No Offence Pending against Vehicle 

» NOC from NCRB (National Crime Record Bureau) that Vehicle is not Stolen - This can be now obtained Online. Click Here to Obtain

» Bank Inter State Transfer NOC - if has an active loan repayment or Form 35 as Bank NOC

» NOC from RTO is to be then applied by submitting in 3 copies of RTO Form 27, 28 along with NOC from Traffic Police, NCRB, Bank NOC and Vehicle Documents like PUC, Smart Card Copy, Insurance Policy, Engine - Chassis Imprint, Owner ID & Address Proof

It will take in anywhere from 2 to 3 Weeks for State RTO to issue in 'Inter State Transfer' NOC and they will mark on status 'NOC Issued' in RTO database against your vehicle number.

Process holds true whether you are from Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Noida, NCR or from any other state in India.

  

Step - 2 Post Migration to New State - for Road Tax Payment & Re Registration

Once moved to new state - you have to pay in applicable Road Tax and apply for registration

» Apply for Re Registration: Form 20 for Re-registration. Also - address change form - RTO Form 33 to be filled in.  Additionally - if vehicle bought from other state as Used Car Buyer then - Form 29, 30 transfer forms also needs to be submitted. Download RTO Registration Forms

» Blank Envelope : Then a Blank self Addressed Envelope needs to be affixed with Postage Stamps equivalent to value of Registered Post. 

Once the Vehicle is Re-registered, you can later on apply for Road Tax Refund. Refer details on Tax Refund

 

Owner Experience on State RC Transfer

RC Transfer from Bangalore to Kolkata (Courtsey: Suman Paul)

Process in Bangalore

1. Get the NOC from police commissioner's office for traffic clearance - got it instantly within 5 minutes
2. Get a pollution check certificate
3. Get bank hypothecation clearance certificate
4. Apply to RTO to get RC smart card against old RC book - it came to my address by speed post in 21 days as promised
5. Along with all above documents and insurance copy - submit to RTO with a filled up form for NOC
6. Submit another filled up form to RTO office for ownership change at the new location with new owner's identity proof
7. Submit one empty envelop with stamps and home address written on it along with the forms to RTO

I did not pay a single rupee for any of the above. All the jobs were done perfectly on time as promised by the officials at RTO office. I never followed up with anybody by any means. Extremely satisfying experience at Bangalore RTO.


 

Further process specified by Bangalore RTO

1. Take the car to Kolkata along with all NOC and original documents
2. Immediately report to the RTO at Kolkata and they will verify all the documents and give a Migration certificate with which the car can be driven there for 45 days legally
3. Submit all the documents along with filled up specified forms to Kolkata RTO
4. Kolkata RTO will tell the amount of Road Tax payable on the basis of depreciated car value
5. Pay the Tax and collect the Tax paid receipt
6. RTO will issue a new RC smart card with new owner's name
7. Bring the Tax paid receipt copy to Bangalore and apply to RTO office for Tax refund
8. Bangalore RTO will verify with Kolkata RTO and refund the over-paid tax amount through bank transfer to my account

Absolutely clean methodical and logical process.

With all the documents and the car we four set off to Kolkata by road for a three days trip. This is another story for another day.

After reaching Kolkata, we tried to do the steps exactly how it was told in Bangalore RTO and that point of time we actually felt that the car is transferred to a new place called Kolkata.


 

Chronicle in Kolkata RTO

1. Many desks in RTO said that it can not be done for various reasons - all were baseless
2. Find some connection through known people just to start the process
3. Repeated visits to RTO just submit documents
4. Submitted documents one day and visiting after 2 weeks, nothing moved, so withdrawn all the original documents
5. Appointed one agent who ran away after couple of weeks
6. Appointed one more new agent who charged a bomb
7. After many visits to RTO, finally it got done
8. We paid road tax of Rs. 40000 which were calculated based on the new car value and not as per depreciated value - RTO said this is the rule of west bengal government to collect more tax
9. RTO charged Rs. 7000 as fine of late submission of documents - pointless to even think about it
10. RTO charged Rs. 5500 for audio system in the car - heard about it for the first time in life
11. Our dear agent charged Rs. 19000 to get all these things done
12. After a good six months of effort, the car got changed to my mother's name and have recieved the new RC smart card
13. Yet to get the audio tax paid receipt
14. The car is legally ready to drive on west bengal roads now

Interstate transfer of my LMV (i20 ) CLC from MH to HYD (transferred to my name and got registered in HYD).
1) Paid 1500 to RTA agent in MH-> GOT NOC from MH in 7 days
( needed to provide form 28,29,30 , RC original , PUC, Insurance, Aadhar proof, NOC from company, Signature authentication letter, Authorization letter from Company stating I am authorized to deal with any RTO related works related to this vehicle.

Actual fare should not exceed 300 Max BUT none of our RTO's work as per guidelines. They trouble citizens, don't provide proper information-> hence i was forced to opt Agent's Help.

2) Tried to get things by self by visiting RTO in HYD BUT you guessed it right.. SAAME Story -> No proper info (Online slot is not applicable as My vehicle is not still registered in Hyd. -> Hence have to catch hold of Agent ( Paid 12k bargained from 15k) Actual fare should not exceed 5k. ( NOTE: Road tax amount is not considered here- Road tax amount varies based on your vehicle age and Original cost . I paid 8% of original invoice amount )

Submitted NOC original which i got it from MH, RC original, FORM 29,30 (2 sets), Insurance, PUC and other documents for address proof like aadhar and pan card,

NOTE : Only form 28 is enough as per RTA website for NOC from STATE 1 ( but agents demand for Form 29,30)
Remember form 29,30 is needed for Registration in STATE2 along with NOC issued by STATE1 RTA. along with other documents.

overall cost - 60940
1500 NOC in state1
12000 Agent fee and YammmYammm in State2
Road Tax ( 8% of invoice in my case as vehicle is 7-8 yrs old and Original invoice cost 5.93,000 (x showroom) ) = Hence i paid 47440




I'm transferred from Maharashtra to Delhi. I want to transfer my car registration from Maharashtra to Delhi. It is maruti Alto 2009. Please inform the procedure and expenses involved.

Dear Sir/Madam,
1. I stay in Ghaziabad UP
2. I have purchased a car from Uttarakhand in Feb 2016. The Vehicle was formally registered "FORM 23 (SEE CMV RULE 48)" by Ghaziabad RTO against OTHER STATE/REGION VEHICLE with purpose of transfer of OWNERSHIP. Number plate was not changed, still having UK number plate. When I asked RTO office they said it is not mandatory. If I want I can apply for UP number plate through application.
3. Now please say me what I have to do to get UP number plate.
4. At the same time my residential address also has been changed, so how can I change my RC address & driving license address.
Regards-
Neel

I had a delhi registered 2W Bike and due to movement to Banglore I took NOC from Delhi and paid tax to Banglore RTO after which I got the Karnataka RC with the same old Delhi regn. number

Due to relocation again I am back in Delhi, now I took the NOC from BAnglore but when I went to Delhi Sarai Kale Khan RTO, they are not accepting my NOC and not doing re-registration stating i have KA rc with delhi number, I need to change the number first to KA number and then again come back to delhi with KA rc and KA number mentioned NOC after which they will re-register my bike.

When I was in bangalore they said it is not mandatory to change the number and even the Banglore RTO gave me RC and NOC everything on the same Delhi old registration number, but here in delhi they are not accepting it.

This is getting total waste of moeny, What should I do in this case.

Assuming your car costs more than 10L and greater than 5 yr , RTA hyd will decide road tax of 8-10% of original invoice value. Which is ex showroom + state tax. If u bought second hand, then as you can't get refund, ready to shell out more. So let's say invoice value of 26+5=31. Then get ready to pay around 2.5l to 3L as road tax, RTA hyd. Figures are not exact, they are just indicative. RTA will decide exact value. These are approximate only. Thanks
