A quick question : If driving a car thats registered in the name of a company , is it necessary to carry a letter from the company to say that the driver is authorised to drive that car?

I used to own a company leased vehicle in Bangalore, and was told that i would need to furnish the original company ID card if requested by the authorities. The company hadn't provided any separate documentation to prove the same.

I'm a director in the company , so I think a letter from the company and a visiting card should suffice.

Arrow Kerala DGP issues new circular regarding vehicle checking

The circular is in Malayalam and intended for police officers and can be read here:
http://keralapolice.org/newsite/pdfs...lar/2016/2.pdf

Most important points to be noted by us:
  • Carry your original driving license.
  • In case the driving license is seized/submitted to authorities, you can produce the receipt of the same in lieu.
  • Other than the above mentioned instance, non-production of original D/L could be penalized.

Default Re: Kerala DGP issues new circular regarding vehicle checking

If my memory is right, I have seen or heard of at least 20 circulars by DGPs over the years. The recent one is a circular insisting that police should walk to the car for document checking, and that the driver should not be asked to come out of the car. Has anybody seen this happening anywhere in Kerala?

A circular is just a circular, one should read it just like a newspaper. If there is anything that the public needs to follow, just obey it (like carrying original DL, given in above circular). For folks visiting Kerala - Never attempt to question a police officer saying 'there is a circular from the DGP...'

AFAIK, this was made mandatory (at least by rule) ever since they MVD started issuing license cards instead of 'books'. Though it was only a laminated paper card, it would fit into a wallet/purse and some police officers used to insist on them instead of copies. I'm talking about the 2005-06 period when I'd been to an RTO and heard the MVI telling his junior. It's another matter than a colour photo-copy would easily pass off as the original in most cases

A relative wants me to use his car during his stay abroad. Do I need to get a letter or something signed by him since the car is registered in his name?

Yes. I gave one to my father when he used my car regularly when I was in USA.
Should mention the registration number, chassis number and insurance number for covering all ends.

Thanks. Does it need to be in a particular format or a normal computer-printed A4 letter with all the details mentioned by you in its contents with the owner's signature enough?

I just mentioned that 'this car belongs to me' <so and so details>, and I am allowing <so and so with relation> to use the car in my absence between <daterange>.
I doubt if it has any legal standing, but should get you out of minor troubles if you get into any.

At present the MH RTO is issuing RC book in a single sheet of A4 paper.
They had stopped the issue of Smart card RC.
Is it safe to Laminate the RC paper book and keep?
