In 2015, I paid 75K+ for LTT+Registration and what I get is a computer printed paper. Sigh! I am sure RTO will now charge me 200+ Rupees to get a smart card once they start issuing it again.

The funny part if Driving License is a smart card!!

I am just waiting for a day when I am on my bicycle and I see a RTO officer doing surprise checks. I am surely going to talk to him about this RC book non sense.

My friend got a smart card. It's first hand experience, not 'somebody told'
May be the smart card thing just resumed and it is getting implemented in different RTOs slowly. I think in 1-2 months, it be 100% smart card again.

I got the smart card for my Punto in 2009. So it was there in MH for more than 6-7 years. In 2014, I got paper rc book for Polo. The contract with smart card vendor expired / cancelled and there was some issue in renewal - this was the reason we were hearing for the paper thing.

Can somebody help me on the process to correct the flat no in RC?
An update to the previous post.

I got the address corrected through the dealer. The dealer had to provide copy of the RTO form showing the correct address. However, instead of printing RC again, RTO has corrected the address with pen and put their signature and stamp!

Yes even I was wondering the same! I got my driving license in Dec as smartcard so why the RC is a paper?

Default Re: How to determine number of owners in smart card RC

For RC Smart cards issued in Karnataka (Bangalore):
When loan is taken to buy the car, the hypothecation information is not printed on the card but will be embedded in the smart card chip ?

If so, when the loan is closed out, one should have the card chip updated at the RTO or apply for a new one ?

In Maharashtra,since the name of the bank is shown, when the loan closes, the bank sends closure notice with applicable forms for RTO.
These have to be submitted with the original RC and a new card is sent without the banks name displayed.

Default Re: Smart Card instead of RTO RC book

In Pune, the much touted Smart city, things are going backwards. 2004 when I purchased my first car, i had the RC paper deliverd in a month. The next time in 2010 when i purchased my second car, it took 3 months for the RC Smart Card to be delivered. Now in 2016, It's been 6 months and I'm still waiting, either for paper or Smart Card.

Today i did overcome my aversion for visiting the RTO office and spent half a day waiting in fromt of Window #1, only to be told that the card is not yet Printed. Duh

With the onset of the Navratra's and Diwali, I'm wondering if this will get printed before this year ends?

A query: I'm planning to drive down to Chennai during the diwali holidays. Will other state cops accept the excuse of a receipt in lieu of the original paper RC?

You can take a que from here (On driving a new car before getting the RC book)

Pune RTO seems to be the worst these days. Apparently they are facing some issue with stationary because of which the printing isnt happening. These horror stories have stopped me from getting the hypothecation removed from the RC because given the way things are, I am really not sure when I will be getting the RC. Adding to it, I maybe looking at an address change as well

RC Sent for Printing on 26-Sep, Couriered on 30, delivered on 5th.

My sincere advice, please double check with the counter downstairs for they are more reliable.

PS:
I've closed my car loan, now do i go back to cancel the hypothecation or not ???

I closed mine last Oct. Still couldn't gather the courage to go ahead and get it removed. Another person whose case was similar to mine went and did an address change and hypothecation removal in one go and what did the RTO do? Remove only the Hypothecation and send the RC to the old address.

Luckily for him, he knew the person staying at that address and got the RC from there but I am not so fortunate. Not sure if I should wait till I sell the car or get it done

Yes, this seems to be the reason.

For my vehicle bought in 2005 I got the RC sheet (dot-matrix printed on those blue, striated paper).

For my second vehicle in 2011 I got a smart card with chip with the HP and bank name on it. When I closed the loan, I also sold the vehicle so didn't have to bother getting a new card.

For my current vehicle bought in April 2015 I again got the RC sheet (its dot-matrix printed on those striated paper). Now the ink on this paper is fading. Guess in 6 months from now, if I am stopped by the traffic police, I will end up pulling out a seeming blank computer sheet after all. I have an electronic scan though.

All of them were/are Thane registered.

It shouldn't take more than a month to get the new RC.

I suggest you go to the Pune RTO and find out the status of your new RC. If you have the registration receipt, take that along since they might need that to track down the status.

I had faced the similar issue when I had submitted a request to remove hypothecation from RC. After a month, when I followed up, the folks confirmed that it was never sent to the team who prints the cards. It was forwarded for printing only when I inquired.

Had visited the PCMC RTO today and after verifying the series (GA), I have been informed that RC has still not been initiated to be dispatched for this particular series A solution provided to me was to have the extract, by paying a nominal fee of Rupees 50, plus form charge of Rupees 2. I did not go for the extract option as there was a huge queue over there and paying Rupees 50, sounded too expensive. Let me now wait till July 2017.

Attached is the form for RC extract for interested members :-

Default Re: Smart Card instead of RTO RC book

Has anyone received a smart card registration certificate in the last year from the Chennai (West) RTO.

Would anyone also know of the process to convert a paper registration certificate to a smart card, if they are being issued by the Chennai (West) RTO?
