They have their own tables for specific car models that they will use, regardless of dealer discounts, exchange bonus etc that may have been applied to your car.

Agreed on the base price logic without discounts etc.
But applying VAT again in Karnataka and bumping the price of an old car above OTR price anywhere in the country. Is that correct ?

Anyways, I feel like

Probably, the only way out is to cancel the NOC and drive around HR car here.
Whenever required, go there and sell it.

Cancelling the noc needs you to take it back to Haryana after obtaining a NOC not in use certificate from Bangalore. Then you can drive the car back here - but the fun is, they might seize it and ask you to fork out life tax once again.

Sell the car in haryana if you cancel the noc. Or if its a reasonably new car re-register it and drive it for a year or so longer than you'd normally drive it

Keep the car for 8-10 years and this ceases to make a difference

I am posting on behalf of a friend and require your advise. He bought a car in Bangalore and traveled abroad. Now the car is in Kolkata and his father is finding it difficult to drive in Kolkata as the cops are asking for NOC. He will be outside India for 8 months only and once back planning to use the vehicle in Bangalore. Does he still need to take NOC in Bangalore? What options does he have to drive the vehicle in Kolkata for 8 months. Please suggest the options.

Whether any option of paying 1 yr road tax in Karnataka because I plan on weekend getaways to Bangalore/Mysore/chikmagalur and not get caught by cops

WB - if you stay more than 3 months with an out of state car you have to pay tax for at least a year. I am sure you can do that.

They used to offer online payment of this tax but that is withdrawn.

If you have any other ID + your DL that is from Kerala and you go back there for various reasons, which is easy given that Subramanya is not too far from the Kerala border, just keep a copy of the latest road tax receipts (or fastag statement from your bank, if you have a fastag) and tell the cop you are just a visitor.

Nationalised bank employees have the option of paying tax annually.

One needs a Non Utilization Certificate (NUC) to get the NOC cancelled.It is not easy to get a NUC.

Surcharge on VAT (5%) = Rs 6,563

Percentage of tax levied <2 yr old car = 93% = Rs 11,04,666

Road Tax @ 17 % = Rs 1,87,793
Service Charge on Road tax 11% = Rs 20,567

HR NOC was taken in May 2017 so,
Penalty @ 1 % each month = Rs 6,254

Total Road Tax to be Paid = Rs 2,14,704

While buying the car in HR, I have paid the VAT which is included in the invoice amount.
Why are they adding VAT again to the Car price ?
Update:
I have paid the above Road tax and got the KA number.

Thanks hserus, Avinash & Waseem for your inputs.

Good show. Now your next step is to try and get tax refund from Haryana.

This post describes the entire process. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post4048379 (Moving a car between States - Road tax, refund etc.)

You may have to follow up with the Karnataka RTO regarding issue of CRTI / CRTM, and personally take a copy over to the concerned Haryanvi RTO - as otherwise things tend to get lost or delayed in the communication between two RTOs. The process will take months and lots of back and forth.

Hi everyone

i am planning to take my Bangalore registered S cross to Chennai. I don't want to get into hassles of getting an NOC or re-registration. Can i not just pay the Lifetime tax in Chennai and drive the vehicle there ?

NOTE:
Also came across that it can be done in Maharashtra.

Can anyone confirm this for chennai ?

Drive the car across to Bangalore often.

Show toll receipts (or show a fastag toll token on your windshield)

Explain to the cop, preferably in polite Tamil, that you're just visiting family / over on a business trip etc and pay either the fine or slightly over the going rate in bribe money that he's running you in for. When it is the end of the month they'll stop out of state cars randomly much more often than they'll stop local vehicles, to make up their quotas.

Or, legally - you can operate the car in Chennai for upto a year before you will need to get a NOC and re-register it (that is not an "or" - it is an "and", first get the NOC, then pay life tax afresh in TN at a much lower rate than KA, then get your KA tax refunded, occupies several months of your time in entertaining conversations with RTO officials).

I am planning to bring an old family car from hometown in Chhattisgarh to Pune and this one year rule, applicable in Maharashtra as well, has me a bit confused.

Say I keep the car in Maharashtra for a year and then drive back to Chhattisgarh for a week, am I then allowed to legally keep car in Maharashtra for another year? Would be so convenient since I would anyways drive back home during festive occasions. Wanting to avoid transferring registration since the car is old and bringing it here is only stop-gap arrangement for couple of years.

I read in one of the articles that if you pay your lifetime tax in karnataka before a year you do not need to re-register the car to KA number.

Technically - yes. If you convince them you're just visiting that's fine and easy.

One common sense bit of warning - If the cop or RTO notices other things about the car that suggest to them that it is local (eg: parking stickers for an office or apartment building in Pune) they won't believe you when you say you're just visiting.

Note - the Mumbai RTO doesn't seem very manic about enforcing out of state type rules, but they do tend to notice vehicles from several states away, where they wouldn't pay much attention to a plate from a neighbouring state like Gujarat.
