New Car Registration Process

Are you planning to Buy New Car and register  

Do you feel that your car dealer or broker is charging you extra sum for registration of your new car or for smart card.

As long as the document checklist is known, its not at all difficult to get the registration done, Know the Process for doing Registration of New Car without any assistance of broker :-

 

Documents to be Submitted for New Car Registration

Ensure that you collect the documents from the car dealer at best before taking the car delivery, it will save you time and further follow ups :-

- Invoice: You need to Procure and Submit both Retail Invoice and Manufacturer Invoice of Car (which is mandatory for self registration at time of delivery of car)

- Sale Certificate (RTO Form 21): As per RTO, a sale certificate is mandatory to be submitted, RTO Form 21 needs to be submitted by dealer. In case, dealer do not do so you can also get it downloaded from our RTO Form Section of Mycarhelpline

- Pollution Certificate (RTO Form 22): Form 22 depicts Pollution Certificate and is required to be obtained and to be submitted to RTO confirming that the vehicle sold is in compliance with Safety, Road Worthiness and Pollution Certificate

- Copy of Insurance Cover Note : A copy of Insurance cover note (if issued by dealer or issued by agent) also needs to be submitted in RTO

- Adding Loan HP (RTO Form 34) : Form 34 (optional for adding loan hypothecation, if vehicle was financed) to be additionally filled and submitted. Form 34 requires stamp and sign of Banker. A Dealer can assist you in same, wherein registration would be done by you

- RTO Form 20 for Car Registration need to be submitted 

- Chasis Imprint: Have a copy of Chassis Imprint done of the car (through pencil)

- ID & Address Proof: Self Attested Valid ID along with PAN Card and Address Proof. A Valid ID Proof Document should be one as per prescribed list of RTO (Copy of Election Card, Passport, Aadhaar UID Card are best documents as they contain both ID and address else)

Temporary Registration : Temporary registration is valid for 30 days. So if you buying a car on Temporary registration, and intend to register car on own - then copy of Temporary registration is also required to be submitted in RTO.

Hi
I went to the Mahe (Puducherry) RTO today Aug-20-2018 to register my Honda Navi (manufactured date OCT-2017) from a Dealer in the neighboring state of Kerala. The dealership provided me the required documentations forms. form 20, 21, 22, TR, Vehicle Data Sheet, Invoice, Insurance, Motor vehicle Inspection certificate, ,,,
Was surprised when the RTO guy told me that, I have to get clearance certificates from the police, SP of kannur - Kerala and SP of Mahe. !!!???

IS THIS NORMAL? or is this some kind of wild way of trying to create issues where there are non and try to get me to pay a bribe????

Where can we find transparent rules that are valid and applicable for Motor Vehicles?? is it different between states? is it not supposed to be uniform through out the Country?

Why is it that the RTO around the country are so corrupt?? Why does it seem much easier to get things done in most of the developed countries and takes a life time to get even the basic things done in India. Is this not one of the reasons why we as a nation end up wasting our finite energy, focused on work that should not take long but end up has a negative 1000% rate of efficiency !!??

Hi,
I have purchased a new XUV 500 sportz ( as dealer shown me) with sticker that was only the change and the cost of the same is different then the lower model. Now the issue is I am facing problem to get it registered in RLA with reason "remove the sticker" cause it change the identity of vehicle. I went to the dealer asked their to provide me the documents of XUV-500 W-10 sportz in which company has approved colored sticker so that I produce it before the RLA authority to get it registered. But they said we do not have any such document .

My query is 1. Is it a case of cheating ?

2. Shell I go to Police or Consumer Court ?

3. Or Should I try to get resolve the matter with company?

Hi All, here is a worst experience-
Showroom- Volkswagen, Juinagar, Navi-Mumbai.
If you you are living in navi mumbai and you belongs to some other state(say MP, UP or RAJ), even though you submit all the valid documents, dealer/RTO will ask for address proof.
I have given registered rent aggreement with police NOC, which is a valid address proof on RTO MAHARASHTRA WEBSITE, affidavit for address proof, still showroom people will ask you to pay 10000-15000 rs. As adjustment amount.
If you wish to register vehicle by own, still you will face the same issue. RTO Vaish people will not entertain you, they will ask you to contact dealer.
Again dealer will ask for adjustment amount. So this is the level of corruption in Maharashtra. I have paid 15000 rs. At Volkswagen showroom, juinagar, Navi mumbai.
They will not co-operate you once you have paid complete amount of car. Once you paid complete amount, they will harass you like anything. Just for money.
They wont even care of their customers.
Please never buy any vehicle from Volkswagen showroom, Juinagar(Navi Mumbai)

Hello. Read your experience. I am almost facing the same experience with RITU Hyundai. They are claiming Rs 10,000/-. Don't know how the Rs. 10 to 15 thousand help the RTO to adjust the address of a tenant. IS THERE ANY SOLUTION TO AVOID IF WE ARE TENANTS IN MUMBAI ?
