Default re: Find car owner using the registration number - Instantly via SMS!

Just checked it out for my car registered in Mumbai and my scooter registered in Surat, Gujarat.

Worked perfectly fine for the first case. All the details are as per what appears in the RTO records. Now its another thing that the RTO has wrongly entered my car as Grande Punto 1.2 Fire when it is actually a Grande Punto 1.3 MJD 90 HP.

Didn't throw any details regarding my 2002 Bajaj Chetak registered in Surat. Then I remembered reading in this thread that it shows data only for vehicles registered after 2003. Hence, it says - Vehicle details not found. Verify the vehicle number or contact registering authority for digitization of the details.

Thumbs down re: Find car owner using the registration number - Instantly via SMS!

This worked for 3 out of the 4 cars I tried.

However, I'm surprised only a few members (MAYBE 5%?) here have voiced privacy concerns over this matter. I think it's a HUGE privacy issue that absolutely would not fly in developed countries. This should be limited to authorities in emergency situations like the cops, or the fire department or hospitals etc. Allowing any tom dick and harry access to names of private car owners is pretty messed up.

I tried my Santro Xing 2005 which I bought second-hand in 2007, but got only the original owner's details. The website shows the correct details, however.

Works in Ahmedabad when I queried my a MH registered vehicle. But a GJ query resulted in a dud.

Response: Vehicle details not available.

I am sorry man. I just got that as a forward with no further information. But from what I gather, it is an initiative by Pune police and the RTO. But I have no official information on this, so cannot confirm the same.

I think - does not work for GJ numbers. Even for me a query for GJ number did not get any result.

I've tried for my present car and the car that I sold earlier and it worked perfectly (both navi mumbai registered).

This is a very useful tool to verify when buying pre-owned cars, hit and run cases, accidents.

Now we should not post the car/bike images in the public forum without concealing the registration number. Some body may misuse the info.

it is a potential risk and this facility should be removed IMO. Any goon or anti social element can now know the owner's residential details which are in most cases correct.

Although it worked flawlessly(Mumbai-Andheri RTO), the reply took exactly 30 minutes to come. A long time in case of an emergency like an accident.

Whatever, i ain't complaining!
