Default Re: Registration Woes, Discussion and solution

Thanks guys for your reply.
I have contacted Venetian Honda(Kandivali) and Sai Point Honda(Bhayander).
They both will take rent agreement (registered and notarized) but asking for 2500 bucks which will go as bribe to RTO for accepting the documents.

As mentioned above, I do not have voter ID/passport/telephone bill of the present address.
Also I only take term insurance and that too from private players so having LIC policy is out of question.

Default Re: Registration Woes, Discussion and solution

I don't know much about the subject but one thing I want to point out is that tweeting to Nitin Gadkari or any official is not going to help out in your cause. This is because their counter-argument would be that the it is the dealer who is trying to rip you off telling fake stories of bribery.

If you really want to take up the issue of bribery, you should first try getting the vehicle registered yourself at the RTO. And when things get in your way, get some sort of recording, maybe using spy pen cam or even spy recording phone apps and then make a strong point against them with the higher officials. But one word of advice though, it is better that you go straight home with recordings,create backups, bring the recorded tape and show it to the officials and press them to work for free. I know you can pursue them in court but the time taken, the grudge the official will take for snatching away his job and consequences might be stressful (I hate when I sound like my dad but this is the real world).

Default Re: Vehicle Registration Blues!! Address proof for gypsies like me

Thanks guys for all your suggestions. I understand, registering vehicle myself would be cumbersome.
I have approached another dealer(not authorized by Honda) who is offering Activa in the same price and accepting the documents available with me.
Further he told me that the vehicle will carry standard warranty and I can get free service done at Honda authorized service station.
I am planning to go ahead with him, any risk you guys see purchasing vehicle from unauthorized showroom?

As long as he gives you the:
1) original invoice
2) owners manual stamped by the nearest authorised dealer from where he is "sourcing"
3) Free service coupons - again duly stamped
4) Battery warranty card
5) Road Tax & insurance docs in original
And finally

6) the registration "smart card" - which usually takes a bit more time

things should not be a bother. Yes - he may charge you more - as essentially he is acting as an intermediary between you and the "sourcing dealer". Or he will charge you same price because he has "sourced" the product at a higher "inter-dealer-understanding-and-discount"

as far as registration is concerned i was a bit surprised reading your tale: two years back, i registered an alto in thane, maharashtra. all my address proof etc was for Kolkata so nothing could be accepted. Dealer took my rental agreement, latest airtel bill copy and got an affidavit done from the local court. Charged me Rs 1000/= for it.

I feel you guys who have asked the question. I don't have a specific address and i keep hopping across cities for jobs. I have changed the ownership of my car in Chennai & a document from the company stating that "I live in the mentioned address" was more than enough. I stay in Mumbai with a bunch of guys & when my room mate bought his bike, the SA created some documents for an extra charge.

However, a rental agreement or a post paid bill (especially BSNL) should do the trick. Alternately, do an RTI for valid documents with the RTO & you can use it to fight with the dealer.

Sending a tweet &,expecting Gadkari to respond is not a mature way to handle the issue. That should be sought after exhausting the initial tricks. I personally would suggest to get the vehicle from the dealer. I am sure there is some catch with the other vendor - nobody does business for charity, watch out for hidden conditions & charges please.

Hi All,

Need help in understanding the car registration process in Mumbai city. I am from Hyderabad and have been staying in Mumbai for last 2 years now. I have a house rent agreement , which is registered ( along with police verification). Isn't this enough for address proof? All other address proofs are of Hyderabad( passport, aadhar card). I can however get the aadhar card address changed if that works.

Appreciate your inputs.


Thanks
