This can surely be frustrating! But as someone great mentioned somewhere a long time ago, We ought to do our Karma (pay the mandated taxes), and not necessarily worry about the dividends (which *may* follow in due course when all planets line up).

A small correction - Form FT is mandatory for payment of OTT and AT is not required. Maybe you can request moderators to do a small correction in your first post which is an ultimate guide for this task.
I am SO GLAD my post was of help to you! And congrats for executing the task in record time! *Mission Accomplished* I feel 10 feet tall!

On the other point regarding Form AT not being mandatory - I'm not really sure as I was told otherwise. Note that I was carrying both forms, duly filled - as with the Govt agencies you never know what new paper they might ask for at the last moment - and hence I also shared the download links for both Forms FT & AT.

I still strongly recommend both forms are filled up and taken to ensure we avoid the agony of another trip to the RTO or the nuisance of daylight robbery from a tout.

All said and done, good work!

Thanks for this post. I brought my Santro to Mumbai in 2010 and have been using it here since then without paying the OTT. Now I reside in Thane and plan to pay the OTT for my car. I have all the documents except the proof of transfer to Maharashtra, that is the truck receipt. What else will the RTO accept as proof of transfer to Maharashtra?

Okay, here is a potential solution: Go on a holiday drive! Enter another state (Vapi / Gujarat is hardly 150 Km from Thane), and On your way back, you can take a toll road. Ensure you preserve the toll receipt, and Bingo, you have your proof on entry into Maharashtra. I also recommend you go to the helpful lady at Pune RTO (The one I have mentioned about in the first post of this thread) and seek her advice offline. IMHO It should work very well. Do let us know if this served your purpose or you managed to do it another way.

P.S.: 5 years without paying OTT (and counting)! Either you are really lucky or Thane Police is really lazy!

The car has'nt been used much. It has done 50K in 7 years. My wife mostly drives it and she has never been stopped. I have been stopped twice in 5 years, once for lane cutting and once for a general check. Both times the cop askme about OTT and I told them truthfully that I don't have it. They sighed, advised me to pay up and let me go.

Thanks for the advise. Will do and update you guys.

Hi,

I am totally confused and undecided and need some advice.

I am planning to purchase a car here in Gurgaon. But there is very good chance that I might relocate to Pune next 6 months.
Now, there is already 60000 of difference in OTR price (20000 in Ex-Showroom) of the same car in Gurgaon and Pune.
Based on some back of the envelope calculations, I might need to pay 90000 OTT in Pune for 8.4 Lacs diesel car.
So effectively, I might be paying almost 30000-40000 extra when I move to Pune.
Add a potential price hike by our benevolent Car Manufacturers, this gap might reduce further.

Options:
1) Go ahead with the purchase and plan for coughing up Road Tax twice, slightly painful.
2) Postpone the purchase, keep fantasizing about the new car, see a price hike making the current difference irrelevant and six months might become twelve.

Sorry for a delayed response. To my mind it would be better to postpone the purchase till you move to Pune. There are valid reasons for this recommendation:

1. You hardly have 5 months or so left at Gurgaon. Say, 22 weeks. So you should be able to manage

2. If you buy now at Gurgaon, your car will still be under 1 year old when you move to Pune. And unfortunately IIRC you would have to pay as much tax as for a brand new vehicle.

3. Buying a car directly at Pune will ensure a seamless, hassle free experience as you wouldn't even need to visit the RTO.

4. Is your employer willing to foot the bill when you get transferred for work purpose? If no, buying the car directly at Pune saves you a lot of $$.

All the best!

Hey guys running different state plates in Pune - how is the checking situation now ? Do they stop you frequently ?

I am moving from Chennai to Pune and getting an NOC from the bank (car loan) is taking too much time, so I now plan on retaining my TN no and just pay the tax if the cops / RTO are very strict there. Another member has mentioned in another thread that they target only the PY & JH registered cars.

Another thing - what is the current road tax in Pune for diesel cars ? Their website talks of a 7% rate, but I think this is not correct.

I remember reading a PDF document on road tax applicable in Maharashtra, not able to search for it at the moment. Why don't you try googling the information.

The tax is calculated based on the valuation of the car post depreciation, again the depreciation calculation is different. If i remember correctly, the tax is at 9% and you can pay a 1 year tax for now and change the plates post completion of 1 year.

Not sure if this info is of any help.

Cheers,
Raj

@abhi413

Thank you for this thread. It's definitely helpful.

Just a few, quick questions:
1. Did you get your new MH number and correct me if I'm wrong, you can only send a request for refund to your prior RTO once you have been allotted a new registration number, right? Have you received the refund from Haryana (in your case)?

2. I am looking to do the same, infact I did two years back with my Punjab registered Alto. Now I am going to do this for my Punjab registered SX4. But there's a slight problem this time. My SX4 is a pre-owned one and now I can't find the original invoice. Infact, I don't even remember if we collected the original invoice from the first owner or not. Any idea how can I get my hands on the original invoice, a duplicate copy should be enough, cause without that I don't think I can initiate the process.

Thanks in advance.

@Aston Sorry for the delayed reply. To answer your query:

1. No, i'm still running my car at Pune, hassle free, on my HR 26 (Gurgaon) number. Have not applied for refund on my Haryana Number since my employer refunded my the Rs. 71k cost I incurred in Pune.

2. A copy of the original invoice is normally needed. I suggest you approach any authorized Maruti dealer, show them proof of your car ownership and request for a copy of the original invoice of when the SX4 was sold to the previous owner. All dealerships are interconnected, they can surely give you a copy. Alternative option: Tweet to Maruti Suzuki for help, All big companies are image conscious nowadays and they would surely help you out!

Do update once you manage to resolve the matter!

cheers ~

I had moved from Gurgaon to Chennai, stayed at Chennai proper for 1 year plus, and then on to Pune where I have been since March 2015. Still with my HR 26 (Gurgaon) number. And I'm happy to report that the traffic police do not harass unnecessarily either at Chennai or at Pune. I have never been asked to show proof of having paid Maharashtra state tax per se, even though once I had unknowingly parked on the wrong side of the road and got fined Rs. 100 (proper challan, no bribes). Generally, if you follow rules I would like to believe the Traffic Police don't disturb you. There are plenty of bad drivers out there who are invariably flouting some rules or the other and attract more attention.

Mind you, Chennai is much better policed than Pune. At Pune driving wrong side is a rampant practice and already the traffic police is almost helpless to stop the same - so you need not fear them stopping or questioning you just to see you furnish papers.

However as far as possible please do ensure you pay the relevant taxes etc as per rules. Paying fines all the time is not the right practice. In western countries like Canada such acts invite "Demerits" and once you accumulate enough demerits you may even be barred from driving altogether. Who knows when they'll implement something similar in India!

(Actually this could be the solution to our traffic woes - Getting rid of repeat offenders from our roads - it may even be fun to drive to work again).

humyum Are you sure ?
Recently Karnataka HC declared that non-state vehicles need not pay road tax again in KA , as they have already paid lifetime tax in their respective states. However if the stay is extended over 12 months then re-registration is mandatory.
I wish the Maharashtra HC gives the same diktat soon.
