Need your suggestions and advice.
Please let me know the formalities and procedure of buying a used car registered in another state. Does the process involves too much hassle?
Kindly advice.

Regards,

Here is an outline

- Get police verification/NOC from the state of origin
- provide the NOC to the destination state, pay the road tax, and re-register the car.
- now using the destination state registration number, apply for refund of tax in the state of origin.

Payment of road tax and refund of road tax are on pro-rata basis.

With so many processes involved, I will keep away from other state car purchase.

Thanks a lot Arun for the heads up!
Was contemplating getting a used Civic; my dream car, but the process is indeed playing spoilsport. There is no good option available in my state. That's the dilemma & that's why the query above.

Thanks,
Saket

Thanks Arun for your advice earlier. Wanted to know if I can drive the car in the period where I have applied for new registration in the new home state? And how long does it take to obtain NOC from the seller's state by the seller?

Timelines varies from state to state. Police Verification Certificate + NOC might take around 10-15 days.
In bangalore, for other state vehicles you will have to pay the road tax within one month and registration can be done within one year.

So, if I opt for immediate registration, can I drive the vehicle in the new state in the period that the car is in the process of being registered without worrying about the cops & fines?

Thanks.

As long as the road tax is paid, I don't see any issues from police. But take the NOC before moving the car to your state because some times to issue the NOC in the sellers state, the RTO will ask for the car to inspect.

Hello guys,

Need some input.

I recently moved my vehicle from Bangalore to Noida. I obtained the NOC from Bangalore RTO for transfer of vehicle to Noida RTO.

At Noida RTO the RTO agent told me something very weird.

1) Since its more than 1 month since i obtained the NOC, i would have to pay 10% penalty on the registration cost at Noida.
2) I would need to pay 8% registration cost on the vehicle. However, it has to be given in cash and the receipt would be hand written.
3) Last - the most shocking - that even after paying the registration fees, all i would have in hand is a hand written receipt. I would get the Noida UP number after "6-7 months".

Is this how things are supposed to work out? I feel he is taking me for a ride. Any inputs? Anyone with a reliable RTO agent in Noida? This RTO agent contact unfortunately i got from a Team-BHPian himself. But i am not able to trust him after what all he mentioned about process.

There is an expiry for NOC. So, they may charge some penalty.
But skip the agent because they have their own set of rules to milk money out of you.

May be you can find some helpful information here,

I am not sure about the way the RTO works over there. But isnt there options like an information centre or just going to the RTO office and enquiring ? In my hometown we have really friendly RTO staff. I never had trouble with the RTO of thrissur and guruvayoor, also the agents have a bad name for scamming a lot.

As far as I know one can drive a car registered in other states for a period of 12 months from the 1st date of entry of the vehicle into Karnataka. Its written on the RTO Website also.

An amendment was made to the Karnataka Motor Vehicles Taxation act that out state cars can stay in Bangalore for only 1 month.
