UP is not a ultra low tax state. In Pune I see cars from JH, PY, SK, even CH etc being stopped, KA, UP etc are stopped only if the car is seen plying on same roads for years together. A friend from Bhopal who is in Pune for four months every year once had his papers impounded and address inquiry sent by Pune police to the post office which covers his Bhopal adress. on getting a reply the papers were released.

I doubt the traffic Police in Pune or Bangalore targets cars from low tax states.
They will collect the same amount if the car owner is forced to pay road tax in their state. Also many times they are just looking for a bribe and an out of state vehicle is an easy target.

With all due respect, may I request you to read the first few pages of this thread to know its significance.

If the Pune police had the time and genuine concern on your friend's case and the righteousness to release the papers without resorting to harassment (may I assume so), it has to be appreciated. However, I believe it is contrary to the principle of "innocent until proven guilty" that our judiciary is based on, putting the onus of proving innocence on the accused.

The topic of motor vehicle taxation rules and the overbearing manner in which RTOs dealt with motorists had been discussed to death on another thread.

I have followed your thread since the begining, my first cousin shifted to Bangalore from Mumbai, and had to pay the tax, even though he was planning to send the car back to his parents in Pune. He was planning to use the car for 6 months after which his company was providing him a car. As he had payed the tax he transferred the car and got MH tax refund, and it was not a easy process. Even I dont drive beyond Hubli / Dharwad for work, as most business folks who travel by road say that trouble starts only South of Chitradurg.

In my friends case the papers were impounded, he did face harassment, but when he had proof of permanent address in Bhopal, that his family stayed there, and that he came every year to Pune only for 4 months, and stayed in a service apartment and not a rented or owned home, the police made him do the verification via post office before releasing his papers.

MH has no rule like KA, so I guess the police had no other option.

Almost everywhere. Perhaps you were amongst the lucky few who slipped off their "hawk eyes".

Dreams signal, bhandup, Mangatram signal, bhandup, Airoli toll, Mulund are few to name which fall within 10 kms from Powai, where you claimed to have stayed.
