Default Re: Step by Step Guide: Paying 'One Time Tax' for an out-of-state car in Pune

Hello, I am just curious, why do we need to pay OTT state wise? Isn't road tax paid in India (irrespective of the state) applicable for the whole of India?

Coming to my predicament: I am in Pune for six months deputation. I intend to bring my bike from GGN which has Chandigarh license plates. Do I really need to pay Pune road tax? or is there a wayaround?

Thanks!

http://www.rtopune.info/ is a very useful website. It has plenty of details.

You can contact the Regional Transport Officer, Pune at the following Phone nos. and enquire regarding Online payments:

+91 20 26058080
+91 20 26058090/8282

Hope this helps.

Unfortunately that is how it stands - It is an old, redundant Bureaucratic rule but a rule nevertheless! The Road Tax paid while buying the car enables you to run the vehicle freely across whole of India (BUT, while keeping the car's domicile in its "home" state). So, it would appear that the separate state tax is for keeping / maintaining a vehicle in that separate state for a long time. Note that all registration numbers read DL, HR, MH, KA, TN etc. and none of them are "IN" or unified India Registration. And for 6 months deputation? You would not need to bother. Just keep the proof of entry into Maharashtra handy, just in case some traffic cop asks (Rest assured they never will).

Thanks abhi413 for your reply. I finally brought my bike to Pune and the sad part is when I drove it from gate-1 of the Pune station. I was pulled over by the cops and I was asked to show all the documents. I showed them all the documents but he said to show him NOC and tax receipt. To which I said, I don't plan to change the number hence I don't need NOC and road tax I'll pay in a week or so. To which he said it needs to be paid in advance and said a challan will be issued for 500/- rupees since I was not sure what to do. I paid 200/- as a bribe. Which begs my question.

If I just pay road tax, will I be able to drive freely in MH? Or do I need to get MH number as well?

Hereís hoping again this post will help out at least some of my fellow Indian petrosexuals. I still do not understand the need of such complications within the same country, but then letís leave that debate for another thread.

Keep revviní!
This thread was very informative.

However, I'm looking to transfer my car from Guwahati to Mumbai and I was looking to see if I could simply pay the OTT and continue driving with my Assam registration, as you have with your Haryana Registration.

Well people were asking if after paying the OTT, one needs to change the registration after a year. It appears that as per the new Maharashtra Motor Vehicles Department website that after one year the registration must be changed.

Source: https://transport.maharashtra.gov.in...ation-mark-RMA

Since it does not specify the option of paying OTT without change of registration as an option, I assume that its not an available option. It says
"If vehicle registered in one state is to be kept or used in other state for the period of more than a year then the vehicle needs to be registered in the latter state new registration number to be assigned. While doing so, the NOC from original registering authority & consent of financier (in case of loan) needed to be furnished."

Its been more than a year Abhi413, I hope you haven't been pulled over for not changing your registration.

The violation for "Plying a vehicle with registration mark of other state for more than 12 months" u/S. 47 r/w S. 177 of M.V. Act is Rs. 100 for first offence Rs. 300 for second or subsequent offence."

Source: Point 45 of https://transport.maharashtra.gov.in...-and-Penalties

This is as checked on April 21, 2017. The site clearly notes below that "The information displayed on this website is for information purpose only. For any legal matter, the provision of MV Act & Rules made thereunder shall prevail."

They just tricked you .
1st of all cops are not allowed fine for registration details, it is the MVI or RTO official.
You can ride your bike for 6 months without paying LTT as it would term as short term visiting. If you are planning to keep the vehicle for more than 11 month in a state, then registration change is required.

What I have seen in Pune, no one bothers to check for out station registration vehicle, though I have re registered both my vehicle to be as per law.

The beat constables are generally try to harass the out station vehicle on odd hour at odd place to get some quick bucks, you should have asked them to issue you the Callahan so that you can pay the tax at RTO based on that and they would have back tracked.
There is a thread on detail case between state of Karnataka and road without boarders on the former trying to collect tax for vehicles staying more than 1 month and Hon. supreme court has ruled that the central MVI act can not be changed by state per se.
Fining you within 30 minutes of landing at Pune would be too stressed.

Sorry for responding so late. I am unaware of this new rule that you have mentioned. However, to clarify, it has indeed been 2 years plus for me at Pune. And I continue plying my car with the same number day in and day out, without ever being pulled over. I have often crossed cops at plain sight, and a couple of times sought directions from cops too. No hassles whatsoever till date. Hope it stays this way!

I know of a few other people too who are plying their cars likewise. In fact nowadays I increasingly see more and more outside Maharashtra vehicles everyday. Fact is, the traffic police is more interested in catching hold of the genuine offenders, which are mainly Yellow Plate cars / Taxis.
