Default Registering a 1968 Fiat in Mumbai

Hi,
Am driving down a 1968 fiat to mumbai to restore and keep it. I want to register it here. Are there any rules for registering old cars here? Apparently, there is a supreme court judgement that only Euro III cars can be registered in Mumbai and Delhi. Is that true? Is the rule valid for Navi Mumbai or Thane too or can I register the car there instead?

You'd definitely have trouble registering a '68 in Mumbai. Thane, Nasik etc. are better options and guarantee a smoother process.

i think these days you have to re-register vehicles more than 15 yrs old (and every 10 years thereafter i think).

The car is originally Tamilnadu registered. Guess, I will be hauled up atleast once in a while if I drive with that number plate here.

In metros only MPFI cars with a minimum Euro II certification can be re-registered.So as GTO says you can move to the suburbs or nearby districts and you'll also have to have the local address proof of that place where you intend to register it.

You can drive your car around with another state Registration. Most of the Vintage and Classics still have their original Registrations. As long as the car has proper papers and a legitmate address of registration there would be no problem.

Well DHABHAR.BEHRAM recently bought a 96 Padmini from Kotayyam, regd KL 05 G something, and re-registered it in Bombay as MH 01 YA something. Perhaps he can share his experiences here for our benefit.

Also go through this thread.

Finally, managed to speak to a senior RTO official. He says that in the four metros Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Calcutta, only Euro II (and in the near future only Euro III) vehicles can be re-registered from other states. I can, ofcourse, register the car in Navi Mumbai. Now, I want to find how Behram fixed it for his KL registered car.

My car arrives from Bangalore tomorrow and I can't wait for my first four wheeler.

Thanks for all the help guys.
