IIRC, this is for one year only. Post that, all the yellow board vehicles to pay the state entry tax. This is applicable for state run buses as well.

Oh my gosh! I am wondering what will happen to so many vehicles with AP number. Will they have to be eventually changed to telengana number, pay again Telengana roda tax?

I guess it will happen along same line just like Bihar and jharkand. (Do any body know how it has handled then?)

Orders issued
Finally, late on Tuesday evening, Government of Telangana issued orders signed by Principal Secretary holding additional charge of Transport, Ajay Misra, announcing the new series and registering authority codes. Interestingly, the secondary alphabet series of EA was chosen to give allowance for all the earlier letters starting from A onwards found in vehicles bought and registered before June 2. There are no directions from the government yet on whether the existing vehicles would continue with AP or simply change it to TS.

a)All folks residing in telangana region will have to change number plates ap to ts(the easy part)
b)Get the rc re-registered/re printed with rta stating ts instead of ap(not so easy as there are lakhs of vehicles to be re registered)

I would expect rta to do it for free but that wont happen

Ideally they should do it on their own and send the rc to the address as per their records( i am dreaming now)

Additionally,What if i plan to drive say to bangalore over the weekend (my number plate will be ts but my rc and insurance will say ap)

I have an insurance renewal coming up as well

IIRC, when the state separation of Bihar/Jharkhand happened, the cars registered prior to the separation were allowed to keep their existing registration. Maybe other members like debuda, saket or //M will give a better view on this.

But then, the law has been passed and hapless citizens are left with no choice.
When Bihar was split to create the Jharkhand state in the year 2000, the state code for vehicle registrations changed from BR to JH. This was implemented prospectively (for all new vehicle registrations) and the old registrations were not tampered with.

Along the way there were some half hearted attempts made to change the old numbers to JH ones but these ideas never took off.

Another point was that the JH numbers issued did not share any character with the BR ones - for example the registration code for Ranchi under Bihar was BR14 , Jamshedpur was BR16 but under Jharkhand Ranchi became JH01 and Jamshedpur became JH05.

We still own a BR-16 registered car in Jamshedpur and a BRT registered 1962 Vespa

+1, That is what should happen here too with TS registration applicable only to new vehicles.

Now there will issues cropping up as to how to complete all the older registrations along with the newer ones. Confusion time begins.

What about Hyderabad? Since it is the capital of both states, what registration numbers will be used there?

Joint capital for 10 years so there is no connection with the registration numbers.

The codes will remain same as earlier except the change from 'AP' to 'TS'. This is for Hyderabad (Central, North, South, East and West). Changed of district codes is only for the other ones only.

If i have a car with AP31 Registration (Vizag) which is being used in Hyderabad, do I have to pay the road tax again to run the same? Any lead on this will help. What about cars with AP31 registration where there is a transfer of ownership to Hyderabad?

The issue of what has to be done for cars that are registered already and running on AP plates, the government hasn't come to a clear conclusion here so your doubt is too far for an answer.

I feel either you take the TS registration by transferring the amount to TS government or go to Vizag, re-register the car with the new code, get an NOC and use it here in Telangana.

This is absolutely ridiculous. I did not find this happening when the UP/UK or MP/CG splits happened.

Absolute waste of public funds. Why should people have to pay double tax amounts?

I am in a peculiar situation (I am sure there are many more like me).

I ride a AP 01 (Adilabad district) 2004 Pulsar. I drive a AP 16 (Krishna district) 2013 Ritz. Both in Hyderabad.

A public interest litigation should be filed, SC should take the final decision in the best interests of lakhs of citizens. Such an inconvenience to general public.

Eagerly waiting for government's direction.

Technically, when you are asked to transfer the registration and pay road tax in a new state's RTO, you can claim the road tax refund from the old RTO where it was registered. In this case, all vehicles with AP plates that were registered in RTOs that are now part of Telengana are technically entitled for a refund from the same RTO which means you should be getting a refund equal to what you would need to pay as road tax again. I believe this might be one of the reasons they abandoned the re-registration plan they floated earlier.

For vehicles belonging to non-TS RTOs, they might have to change the registration to a TS number eventually, just like it is for other states. However, the timelines could be relatively relaxed considering a strict implementation by RTO inspectors would make life difficult for them to do all this re-registration formalities considering the huge volume involved.

Also, if AP govt implements a similar drive, there would be a lot of refund claims for Hyderabad and other 'TS' registered cars plying in AP. If it is more than the number of AP vehicles plying in TS, TS government might end up paying more than what they would earn with this drive to re-register AP cars in TS.

All I can say is we have interesting times ahead!

Good point. How would TS handle 3-letter registration codes? They cannot simply replace A with T since I believe we already have cars in TN with 3-letter codes starting with T. My guess is that they would just leave those vehilces as it is since they are a very small chunk of the total count and there is no easy solution.
