2. Are there such provisions for buying a used car that is not KA registered in KA and just changing ownership?

Please help / advise.
You can't change ownership of a MH car in KA without a NOC from the MH RTO and paying re-registration life tax.

The first thing the KA RTO will do is gleefully collect the life tax and then give you a KA RC book with your MH number on it. Which means you or the original owner will not be able to collect a tax refund in Maharashtra till such time as you get a KA number allotted to you. See the crazy procedure here.
