What if the car is under hypothetication? Would the banks support the NOC and change of registration to a different state?

Hi everyone

i am planning to take my Bangalore registered S cross to Chennai. I don't want to get into hassles of re-registration. Can i not just pay the Lifetime tax in Chennai and drive the vehicle there ?

NOTE:
Also came across that it can be done in Maharashtra.

Can anyone confirm this for chennai ?

Hi guys,

I have recently shifted to chennai and am planning to bring down the family car from Kolkata which is registered in my father's name.

I have read through the initial post but have certain additional queries.
1. When transferring the vehicle, what additional steps will i need to take to transfer the vehicle to my name as it is currently registered in my father's name?
2. I stay in a PG without any rent agreement with the landlord. So i basically do not have any local address proof. What options do I have? Will a letter from the HR suffice?
3. I am unable to find the exact amount of road tax that i might have to pay when i bring the car to chennai. I know that the road tax here is a life time tax @ 10%. However, that is for 15 years. My car is already 9 years old. How will that affect the rate of taxation?

You will have to pay 10% road tax on the depreciated value of the car .

Why are you in a hurry to change the registration considering you don't have address proof ? You won't face much issues here anyways .

I am against this whole stupid policy of changing registration when moving between states. It's a colonial era hangover that doesn't belong in today s adhaar age.

Well actually in West Bengal you can pay for road tax 5 years at a time and the I've paid I 2013 is about to expire next year. If i don't change the registration then I will any way have to pay road tax again next year in Kolkata.

Also, I plan to stay in Chennai for atleast 3-4 years in Chennai. Can i keep driving for 4 years on a kolkata registration without paying road tax here?

But for these issues, I would actually prefer to keep the old registration.


Coming to the tax computation. How can i determine the depreciated value? Is it a declared percentage year on year?

Thanks a lot. This is exactly what I was looking for.

Any chance you know any agent at who can get me a registration at the KK Nagar RTO? I currently stay at Ashok Nagar. If I am not wrong I will have to take the registration from KK Nagar RTO.

I am quite wary of agents . Prefer asking a driving school nearby. They are the more reliable version of agents. The driving schools I use to get my work done deal with Virugambakkam RTO.

You could try doing it yourself. Should be easy if you have all the documents. Presume you have the NOC from Kolkata RTO which is compulsory for a change in registration. Otherwise, they will accept the road tax which will give you a break from RTO and police.

You can drive in Chennai with :
  1. kolkata registration
  2. TN tax payment for 1 / 2 years
If you are in TN for a few years, you need not re-register the car. You just have to pay road tax.
