  • Retail Invoice as given against Car 
  • 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

  • Copy of Temporary Registration (Valid for 30 days)
  • Valid ID & Address Proof (as per RTO List. Rent Agreement is not acceptable in most of the states, Union Territories)

Additional Documents in case of Car Bought in one State and registered in Other State

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 !!??

Straightforward answer is NO.

You cannot change the registration number once allotted until you change your residence to another state.

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 ?

Sir,
I have bought new Ford Aspire Petrol Car. The car is to be registered with Thane RTO. As address Proof, We have submitted following documents:
Electricity Bill - Original in the name of Builder
Since this is in the name of builder, We have submitted Agreement Copy
Passport Copy
Aadhar Card Copy
Even then, the RTO is not signing the papers. I have prsonnally visited yesterday but he says that all the documents are in order, but you can not submit them, the Dealer has to submit!!
Is this correct?
