Hi, Can i issue a Power of Attorney for my wife to sell a car on my behalf, as i will be moving out of India for few years.
Will this be acceptable by the RTO? and new buyer?
Admin Accepted Answer

We digged a bit about same and last info we got is that Power of Attorney can not be used for signing transfer forms on behalf ,

RTO forms - if signed by any other person (other than original owner) will not acceptable by RTO Office for transferring car. As per rules - RTO Forms need to be necessarily signed by the original owner.

However the advantage of POA is family member can enter into transaction with buyer using the POA - for receiving payments.

In terms of RTO Process and formalities:-
- You may sign off RTO Sale Documents (2 copies) - Form 29, Form 30 along with Form 35 (if with HP), pre hand.
- Make Power of Attorney, to authorize your spouse, so that she can accept payment from buyer - for easy and smooth transaction.
- If NCB Bonus is also to be transferred, do also prehand write a letter (without date) stating to transfer NCB on sale of car
- Also - Handover her documents like :- Self Attested Copy of PAN Card, Address Proof and Vehicle documents for executing the transaction.
- Hire a broker for executing transfer as and when required - though, for information - some of the RTO Offices now call seller in RTO for original signature verification (if mis-match) - to prevent id theft cases - unsure how strict will be this practice in future.

For re-validation of info - suggest to get in touch with local RTO Office for exact details and requirements.
