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

Tried in Chennai for a car I bought in 2005 as the 2nd owner and then sold it in 2010. It only returned the name of the 1st owner.

As it is, there's nothing much you can do with knowing just the owner name and Vehicle type. And when there's no accuracy what's the point of it?

Fail.

Worked great for my Delhi registered Bike, Navi Mumbai registered Car and also for my parent's car in Delhi.

Found it to be a really useful and nifty tool.

Yup it works in Kolkata. Its also giving the number of owners as well which can be useful while buying a second hand car. It didn't work for cars in Mumbai (Andheri RTO) though.

Thank you for the information. It worked both for my Bangalore (KA03) and for my parents' Kerala (KL01) registered vehicles.

Works well in Bangalore too. I just checked registration number of my bike, which I sold. I could see the new owners name with other details.

Cheers...venks

Works perfectly fine in Pune. Gave exact information of all the cars in my house.
Heck, even gave correct information of the car I sold. Thanks to this, now I know who bought my car, as I had sold it to True Value .
