1. Invoice: You need to Procure and Submit both

  • Retail Invoice and
  • Manufacturer Invoice of Car which they have billed to Dealer against stated Chassis Number

If you going to do Self Registration - ensure to ask your Dealer for both Invoice Copies pre hand

 

2. Sale Certificate (RTO Form 21): Effectively RTO Form 21 is what called Sale Certificate. As per RTO, a sale certificate is mandatory to be submitted. This effectively contain details of Vehicle including Model Details, Year and Month of Manufacturing, Invoice Amount

Ask your Car Dealer for providing same before taking in Delivery of Car

 

3. Road Worthiness Certificate (RTO Form 22):  Effectively RTO Form 22 depicts that vehicle sold is in compliance with Safety, Road Worthiness and Pollution Certificate. You need to obtain it in Original from your car dealer if you going for Self Registration. Else, you may even ask a photo-copy of it for your records

Yes - your Car do not need any PUC Check for 1 year from Date of Registration

4. Copy of Insurance : If the dealer doing Car Insurance then Insurance Policy with Matching Engine Number, Chassis number, Name, Address, Model Details as per Invoice needs to be obtained from Car Dealer. Else, if you doing Online or from some agency then you anyway will have it and a copy of same needs to be submitted

 

5. Adding Loan HP (RTO Form 34) : Form 34 (optional for adding loan hypothecation, if vehicle is bought on Finance) 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

Hi,
i am planning to buy a car in UP-Aligarh where as all my ID's are from Bihar but i own a flat in Aligarh in my name.
But the dealer is insisting to have a ID (ADHAR) with Aligarh address only or registration will be a problem.
Kindly advise.

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 !!??
