@hserus; KA was paranoid about TN plates. In Bangalore even a casual visitor from TN would be hauled up and harassed.

I think with Pan India sales tax (oops GST) here it is high time that all India unrestricted movement of vehicles should be made a reality. Also, I am seeing an undercurrent for common taxation on fuel.

Yes sir, aware :(

I had to migrate my TN license plate to a KA one and then get my TN road tax refunded due to this.

The problem is of course that GST doesn't apply to vehicle lifetime tax and stamp duty, two of the states' biggest money spinners, revenue wise. If they were brought under GST they'd become central government funds.

Taxation of fuel is a central government thing so that is another disgusting kettle of spoiled fish, with crude prices falling and fuel prices paradoxically rising.

Need some feedback

I have a Pune registered Punto 2010, but have moved to Bangalore now. Around a year back I paid the KA Road tax, but didn’t get the number changed since I didn’t have the opportunity to go get a NOC from the Pune RTO.

I am looking to sell the car now and wanted to understand which is the best option amongst the following:

1. Get NOC from pune RTO, sell the car In Bangalore. The process of reregistering to the new buyer will include the number change. So sale, reregister, new KA number happens in one step (is this even possible?)
2. Get NOC from pune and apply for KA no (Road tax is already paid). Once I get the new no. then sell the car in Bangalore and go through the process of reregistering it to a new buyer. (How long does it take to get a new no.? I heard it could take 3 months)
3. Transfer the car to pune and sell it there
4. Sell it to an agency like cars24 in Bangalore which buys cars across states

My understanding is selling the car in KA will fetch more resale thanks to higher road tax. What do you guys suggest?

As your rc is still from Pune and you have a MH number take the car back to Pune and sell it there.

If you had a NOC from Pune you have no option other than to subsequently get a KA number and then sell in KA - issuing the NOC means your MH number stands invalidated.

Default Re: Moving a car between States - Road tax, refund etc.

Folks I have a query that I have desperately been trying to solve for a while now I am very keen on buying a Forester in Pune. The car is a May 2003 one. I need to know how much it will cost me to transfer to Bangalore. Some people are telling me to consider lifetime tax as 18% of invoice value for 15 years divided by 15 for 1 year, others are telling me 33% of lifetime tax. The numbers are varying between 20k to 80k. Need to know which is which. Also, is there any way to just pay the road tax, re registration and green tax in may of 2018? If so how do I calculate that amount?

I am aware that this is a complex situation but finding a good deal on a Forester is very tough and also I have lined up everything in terms of spares and maintenance for the car it is just this state transfer process which is hassling me now.

The value is pro rata based on

1. Age of the vehicle (so some % of the invoice value for a 0-3 year car, 3-5 year car etc). They will not consider discounts etc you may have bought the car under, they have tables with them for most models.

2. Invoice value - assuming you have the original sale invoice of the vehicle

Your best bet is to take the vehicle to the RTO and get an estimate from them.
