Not true. KLC was for Kannur (Cannanore) district, not Calicut. See the link below from Kerala MVD which details the history and current series.

Hi,

When the switch to the present type of numbers came into force, Kerala adopted the least complicated form. Each district RTO got its own number - then 1 to 14 - with the KSRTC (Kerala State Road Transport Corporation) getting 15 for its use. There are no other distinguishing factors for any class or type of vehicle.

About 18 months back, all the sub RTOs in each district got their own codes and so the numbers go upto 60 now.

The most active registration code is Ernakulam / Kochi which is KL07 and the serial now is BL.

When this system came into force, the state code and the RTO code form one section and the remaining was to be for that specific vehicle. But many peopl write it in such a way that the numericals alone form the second part. That is not correct, I believe.

The post quoted below states that TN 60 is Madurai North.

This and other errors, if any, need to be corrected or the post needs to be deleted as it gives factually incorrect info which is very mis-leading. In fact I landed on that page first and based on the info provided there got the impression that my used car dealer was giving me wrong info. Subsequently I stumbled on this list posted by a moderator that confirms my dealers statement.

Err, you err, guys! The 01 is not always reserved for the capital. Andhra Pradesh's capital is Hyderabad, whose no. is AP 09 and AP 10.

Yes!! Similarly RJ-01 is Ajmer in Rajasthan and not Jaipur which is RJ-14.

The RTO numbering here is Alphabetical, as on the date they started this system. Any new RTO after that is given subsequent running nos. I think a similar scheme is followed everywhere.

Mumbai (or Bombay) and some others all over India, have been given the 01 etc. (like MH-01), even though they are not highest in alphbetical order. They are the exceptions. Perhaps owing to the size of the city itself. This city required at least 4 RTOs. ,maybe more.

Was just informed by a dealer that RTO tax in Maharashtra has increased from 7% to 8% ?
Can someone please list the states that a fixed value for regn rather than a % of ex-showroom?? Eg: I believe Chandigarh has Rs.6000 charge RTO tax charge.

It is a good thread about the RTO numbers. can some one tell in which web site do we get all the Registration Code numbers of Indian Districts. Any idea to check the vehicle's crime status or tax default and fine status before purchase of an used Car.

KL-01 to KL15 was very easy to identify. Do anyone have newly added series details(KL 33, KL 58 etc)? where it belongs?
