Dont worry, your car will still get registered.
OK, but supposing the Incidental Charges are waived off, I would need to register it myself right? That way, how does the road tax I paid to the deal reach the RTO?

no. you do not need to register your vehicle yourself so long you are paying the road tax + registration charges (which normally include some amount that is used as bribe to RTO and you don't get reciept for the same) to the dealer.

incidental charges are something you won't get a reciept for too. what i suggest is, leave the registration hassles to the dealer but negotiate hard on minimising the amount that you pay and don't get the reciept for, and try to get the handling charges waived off.
