Can anyone clarify a point related to the sale of used car? I am selling my car to a new buyer and the buyer wants the car delivered after submitting all the necessary forms (28/29/30) and supporting/necessary documents to the relevant RTO. The car is in Hyderabad and is being purchased by a person in Hyderabad. He says that just the receipt of acknowledgement from the RTO officials, at the time of submitting application and documents for Transfer of ownership, will indemnify me of all the legal, tax, traffic and other related car liabilities. Can a legal expert confirm if this is true or should i wait to receive the RC copy with the new buyer's name and address on it before handing over the car to him.

Hello,

Well RTO Receipt indicates that the documents are submitted for transfer
By submitting documents - Its like intimation to RTO that the vehicle is sold, and RTO can transfer the car in name of new buyer
Yes - its a reasonable first step, but is what the final RC which end matters as that shows that the vehicle is transferred.

There could be a slight possibility of document discrepancy which can also happen. But if documents are complete without any deviation then the Transferred RC is generally sent by RTO within 2 week to 6 weeks (based on RTO working, city) in name of owner

To our view - a Car should ideally be handed over the moment to buyer as the papers are deposited in RTO.
But yes - should follow up with buyer to hand you over a copy of transferred RC as soon as gets it.

Hope should help !!

Hi,

Thanks a lot for a prompt response.

The answer definitely helps in understanding the procedure of getting the TO done.

However my main point was around the legal aspect. Please reflect on the scenario where the new buyer has submitted the application with all the relevant documents at the RTO for TO (Transfer of Ownership). In lieu of this application the new buyer is given a receipt or proof of acknowledgement from the RTO official. However, the RC and RTO records still bear the old owner name and address. At this stage (against this acknowledgement receipt of the RTO) the car is handed over to the new owner of the car, then kindly confirm if this acknowledgement receipt has legal credibility and will indemnifies me of all the tax, traffic, criminal etc. liabilities if something untoward happens to the car in the hands of new owners. Coz the new RC with the new buyer's name and address is still awaited.

Thanks again in advance!

Hello,

Its like this that Customer has submitted in all documents for effecting transfer and has got acknowledgement receipt alos
But the same is pending at RTO End

In case of a legal issue or accident or crime even (within 60 days generally) - A customer has a proof of sale - by showing payment method, agreement of sale and fact that documents are already submitted in RTO for effecting transfer

However - if transferred RC not received within stipulated time - then owner has to ensure that its done, been if there is any document discrepancy or signature mis-match - then the same need to be completed in.

However - for all practical reasons - a buyer should not be concerned if complete document are submitted in RTO and has copy of acknowledgement receipt - as this is a standard practice and RTO receipt holds good for all reasons within stipulated time

Hope should help !!
