Default RTO agent Charges - Are they OK?

Hello all,

I need to cancel hypothecation and do a transfer of ownership for my two wheeler. Does anyone have contact number for a reliable RTO agent? I am charged Rs.700 by a RTO agent for both jobs together. The two jobs are at two different RTOs. Is this reasonable?

Thanks

Nirmal

Is that the total cost or is it just the agent's charges?

Here in AP the govt. fee for removal of hypothecation from a bike's RC book is Rs. 200. I am not sure about the tranfer of ownership thing but I guess that will also be around the same mark (200).

If its almost the same there in Bengaluru then I would say a charge of Rs.300 for the agent (if 700 is the total cost) sounds reasonable to me.

Please mention which RTOs you are trying to get it done. Normally a single agent will do both jobs regardless of the work at different RTOs. I have an agent at YPR RTO.

700 is including all charges (agent + RTO). In Bangalore cancelling hypothecation is 100 Rs and transfer of ownership is 35Rs for 2 wheelers

The cancellation of hypothecation is at Electronic city RTO and transfer is at Indiranagar RTO

I got the hypothecation removed for my car and RC book updated all for Rs.300 here in Bangalore.

Will get the number of the agent I had used and PM it to you tomorrow.

Removing hypothecation on the RC book, Rs.300/- is normal, but cancellation of hypothecation and transfer to another RTO is a different job altoghether. I checked with my agent, he said it will vary within Rs.500 to Rs.700/-. So the rates quoted by your agent looks justified. Final rate what you pay will depend upon your bargaining ability though!!

The official RTO charge for removal of hypothecation and updating the same in the RC book is Rs.99. Transfer of ownership and updating the same in the RC book is Rs.150

I got both these done 6 months back for my car.

Hi, would any of you provide me RTO agent details as I want to re-register my Chennair registered car at Bangalore.
Also, I got NOC from Chennai and how much does the whole process of re-registration takes?

thanks,

Are these agents legal?

Should we rename this thread to: We support Corruption In RTO?

I do not think what we are discussing here are 'agents' as in those taking money and doing some 'dingy-dally' stuff for us!

The agents referred to here are people who go and do a work for those who cannot go down and do it themselves, either due to lack of time or lack of procedural knowledge.

So, we are paying someone to get our work done - payment includes the charges and a nominal service charge to the person.

Atleast this is what I understand this thread is about.

OT: Do we need to support corruption anymore in RTO's? Is it a thriving center already! Read yesterday's TOI, you will find news where vigilance office did a surprise raid on a RTO office and found (yes - found) 63,000INR laying at random places!!! The officers said that these might be cash disposed of by the brokers when they saw the raid. The brokers were arrested due to being at the office without any valid reason. As for the RTO officers, all things were fine. Only accounted money!!!

Yes, they're legal, as HappyWheels has mentioned and are a good option for people who don't have much time, or for a complicated process.

Agents are familiar with the rules though, so they make your job easier.

What a lot of people don't realise, however, is that they aren't required for all jobs.
eg. There's a straight forward procedure to obtain a basic learner's license, and a lot of people end up hiring an agent for that, which really isn't necessary.

My dad needs to remove hypothecation of his car at Thrissur and the agent says it will take 1.5 months. Does anyone have a contact of any agent in the area who could do it faster?

Thanks
