Thanks tintin82. Another thing which I wanted to know is what in case I want to sell my vehicle in bangalore, currently it is MH regn. Do I need to get the NOC done+pay the KA road tax, and will I be eligible for any road tax refund from MH.

I got a refund cheque of 75% of the amount that I initially paid as road tax, as per the new rule in UP, a maximum of 75% is refunded uptil 5 years, if the vehicle life is beyond this the deduction is 5% per annum.

The process was started in August 2009, 3-4 personal visits in December 2009 and numerous phone calls and followups with the agent, this costed me Rs.2500 towards the agent fee which I think includes the "grease" as well .

Default Refund of road tax for a totalled car

Hi Guys,

Has anyone ever got a refund of road tax if a car has met with accident and has been claimed as complete loss. Lets say within a year it meets an accident. Will the state govts refund it.
Just asking out of curiosity, couldn't find any info on the forum.

Thx

So, is there anyone@T-BHP who has ever got the Road Tax Refund from the concerned RTO ? I'm asking this because we all know of the typical Govt. setup !!!

Any tips to get Road Tax Refund quickly ?
The tax can be refunded.Only thin is that depending on the RTO you may have to do some running around as they do it in typical babu manner.Or try to get it done by an agent.

Two ways to get refund -
1. Contact the officer directly, not any babu but the head/chief/top most official in the concerned RTO
2. Get the "services" of an agent, who would know where to put the "grease"

I applied for a refund on the LTT paid on my Maruti 800 in 1998, when I shifted the car to Bengaluru in 2006 and got a KA number. We didn't employ an agent, ran around the RTO for > 3 years and finally gave up. I think we (as in family included) spent more than what we could've got as refund on all those trips to the RTO.

This was really surprising because I never use(d) an agent for any RTO-related work and so far everything got done, though it took a lot of time. I guess they just don't want to part with money .

I then brought the car back again to Hyderabad in 2009 and re-registered here. I didn't even bother to apply for a refund because I didn't have the time or resources to follow-up remotely in Bengaluru.

Luckily for me this was an 800, so the cumulative value of the two refunds is something that I can "let go" without feeling too much pain.

I sold the car two months back, so now I don't think I can get back the refunds even if I wanted to (engine/chassis number imprints etc. are very difficult, if not impossible, to get now).

Regards,
spadix

Hi rajatsingh78,

I have read your story 'UP to AP tak'.

Why dont you file a RTI on your tax refund.

Thanks

I got my refund cheque in March 2010. The problem about RTI was that someone should have been in NOIDA for follow-up and I am here in AP. Plus UP RTI commission is itself under suspicion following some reports that I read on the internet.

Has anyone had any experience in getting a refund in Goa? I am looking to buy a car there and register it in Hyderabad, any tips/contacts of RTA agents would be very helpful.

Thanks!

Default Re: Anyone "ever" got any Road Tax Refund ?

Does anyone know if it is possible to get refund on corporate road tax paid?
The scenario is that there is a company registered vehicle which is being sold to an individual after 5 years.
I was told the company can take the papers after transfer is done and approach RTO to get the refund of corporate road tax which is more than twice of individual road tax.

Any ideas?

SUN,

Did you end up getting a road tax refund for the double corporate part ? I am in the same boat and need to know how to get that refund.

^Actually, the previous owner of the vehicle had paid corporate tax. I have merely completed the formalities from my end and handed over the copy of documents that he had asked for. I am not sure if the previous owner got something back or not. I will check with him and get back in some time.

Default Re: Anyone "ever" got any Road Tax Refund ?

Hello,
I have received a "RTO Corporate Tax" refund for my company car, which we had sold to an individual. The Refund Order states "To be presented to the State Bank of India, Pune-1, through any Nationalized Bank for payment".

The catch is - My Co. has an account with HDFC Bank & Axis Bank only. (Not with any Nat. Bank like SBI, Bank of Maha, etc). Wanted to know - Would the refund cheque be rejected if I pay it into our HDFC or Axis Bank a/c?

I am surprised that a Govt. Department is indulging in discrimination against other Banks?
Has anybody experienced this before?

Default Re: Anyone "ever" got any Road Tax Refund ?

I own a Fiat Linea 2009 , it was company leased car and it transferred to my wifeís name by my employer.

I had met with an major accident and the car is total loss, I had got a salvage buyer for the car, he is looking forward to buy it as a scrap and suggested me to getting the refund from RTO on the life tax which I had paid.

Due to bad luck my employer has not transferred the insurance my wife name, they had shared all the details expect for the RC copy. Accident happened after three weeks of ownership transfer to my wifeís name. Ií am fighting my case with my employer.

Ií am out of Hyderabad location, would like to dispose the car. Can you please guide on the process of getting the life tax refund. Do I need to something before I sell car as scrap.

Appreciate all your help.
