1. Invoice: You need to Procure and Submit both

  • 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)
  • Chassis Imprint on Plain Paper taken by Pencil (Optional and not all RTO ask for it) 

Do note that if you going for Self Registration then Dealer will do Temporary Registration which will be valid for 30 days, Temporary Registration needs to be applied in

 

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

@Vishwas - Which dealer is this & registration not done for 4 months - is it some kind of joke created by dealer. For what has he kept the registration pending, Have you not spoken to HMIL.

Dont let the dealer take you for granted, Take an immediate action on top of voice - by taking it immediately with HMIL and sending mail & letter to dealer through mail. Also - selling unregistered cars to customers is a offence under Motor Vehicle Act -

@KK - RTO allocates a series to dealers in most of the cities. The number you mentioning does not seems to be a vip number
May be should check with Local RTO office for details, does they do any kind of selling like this or the dealer executive is trying to pocket money, just by chance that he has a specific number - which matches with the counting series.

I have talked to HMIL customer care center at Mumbai and also send numerous mails but to no avails. they show there helplessness and tell us to talk with the dealer. Dealer says there are some financial problems but i have paid all the money.

As per MVA (Motor Vehicle Act) - No dealer can deliver unregistered vehicle to the car buyer.
Its mandatory to deliver car only after atleast temporary registration done.

If dealer show his unwillingness to register (though any such reason mentioned of financial problem in comment never ever heard of), Make a Final Formal complaint to Transport Commissioner or lodge a case in Consumer Court.

Hi Gagan, I bought a car from Bangalore. The dealer is not charging me anything for the car registration. But, is saying if I need a counting number (eg. 1234 = 1) I need to pay Rs. 4000/-. Or else if I do not want to pay anything then I will get a random number from the running series in the RTO. So, is this Rs. 4000/- thing correct or is he charging more ? And if yes, how much does it cost then.

Thank You

Hi Gagan,
I booked a Honda Amaze under car exchange and car loan on March 31st. The dealer said that they had completed the invoice and sale deed (online) but Form 20 is not signed yet and also the car is waiting for registration this week. But now, my brother wants to change the car (Hyundai i20). Is it possible now? Actually, when I enquired with the Sales Mgr of the dealer, I was told to pay 30000 for the cancellation.
Kindly advise here.
Thanks!

30,000 Rs for cancellation ?? Is the sales manager some kind of goon !!

When the car is in showroom and not registered and neither delivered - how can he demand 30K rs for cancellation and for what ?? Is there any paper on which you signed and stated that they will take 30,000 rs for cancellation. Such kind of things even come u/s 420 of cheating.

Take Honda Cars in Loop immediately and take strong action - The Manufacturer is good and will surely help you in coming out of this mess created by dealer

Hi Kanchi Sai Prasad,

Invoice if done can be cancelled and reversed, not only in Automobiles, but in any business
Have you made complete payment to dealership ? Even if yes - still invoice bill can be reversed

As long as car is unregistered and you have not taken delivery, yes (to the best of our view) - its much possible to change the vehicle make & model
You immediately take Maruti Suzuki in loop - speak to there local office, also have word with customer care (1800 102 1800) - write a mail to them and speak too

Ensure that papers are not sent for registration in meanwhile. If required - take GM / owner in loop - tell him that as Dzire tour is used primarily for commercial nature, same was not informed or aware of and now you intend to take Celerio and hold papers for registration

Also - keep them appraise of interaction with Maruti Suzuki too !! All the best !
