.....and now I get a ticket for going wrong ay up a one way street in Bapoojeenagar in my Tata Sierra which I sold in 1997

I have no record of whom I sold it to

Do I ignore and hope for the best ? In the meanwhile, I have asked AASI to obtain a "B" ledger extract of who the owner could be - hopefully not me! This will take a couple of weeks

Too bad the most e-governed state in India does not have a site like the Kerala RTO, which shows the names of registered owners.

This must be a nightmare. Looks like half the used cars in Bangalore once belong to Ajmat.

On a more serious note, given the kind of things happening in our country one needs to be doubly careful about who they are selling the car to. After reading this, I've decided to sell my car only to an agency like Maruti TrueValue even if I get a few 1000 bucks lesser in the bargain.

How is this a good ending?? Poor guy had to go to run around Govt. offices and pay up for no fault of his. I dread to even think about a bad ending in your terms.

I think it is a safe practice to sell a car to a dealer in India. Even if one gets a lower price , the peace of mind sure makes up for it.

Actually its quite the opposite. On the Transfer papers, there is this Delivery Note sheet which is seperate. If that is signed (With time and Date), then nothing should be a problem.

Ajit, my honest suggestion to you is go watch Oye Lucky Lucky Oye.

Then think of all the nonsense upon you.

The honest suggestion will always come from N_C

Regards and apologies if on any account.

Go to the Police station and write a complaint that your car has been stolen.

No ways! When it was legally sold in 1997, stating this would mean inviting trouble.

Can you elaborate as how this would help.
If this is done in this case(here), it will be asking for more trouble

Asking for trouble is what ritz does on a regular basis.

No, ignoring won't be the best thing. The issue is larger than just a traffic ticket.

If I were you, I would first find that car, no matter how far I have to go or what I have to do. After finding that person, pursue him to transfer and to pay the ticket. The fine would again be 100 or 200 rs but why should you pay for something you haven't done.

As it is in your name, it is your responsibility to get it transferred. Bigger thing then the ticket to worry is to get this car and "all cars" you have sold in past properly registered in respective owners name, now. These unregistered cars can change various hands and can then create more problems in future.

If you are not able to find this car then at the ticket office talk to seniors, tell them that you no more own this car and ask what you shall do to find it, or transfer it. May be they have a procedure of filing a complaint (not stolen) for such cases. Donít take easy exit by paying more money. Talk to senior officers at registration office also and discuss with them openly what to do now? Get these cars off your shoulders anyhow.. Also while discussing with seniors give them written application that you sold this car on such and such date and the new owner has not transferred it yet, please suggest what to do? Keep a copy..

As you have not done anything wrong you need not worry, this all is just to be safe for future.

Did you got the Zen transferred and do you keep its papers safely?
