Default Need reliable RTO agent in Bangalore

Friends,

I need to transfer my car and bike registrations from KA to WB.
So I need to get the NOCs, and probably would need the help of
some RTO agent in Bangalore (KA-04). I'll soon make a short trip
to Bangalore, and if the NOCs are not done during my stay, I'd
really need the help of a responsible agent who would take care
of all relevant original documents and forward those and the NOCs
to me in WB. I also need to get the hypothecation of my car
cancelled, and renewal of license.

If you know of any reliable and reasonable RTO agents that you
were satisfied with, I'd appreciate it very much if you would
recommend them to me. It would also help to know the approximate
cost involved. Thanks in advance.

In Bangalore, I did it myself for my bike, when I shifted to Kolkata in 2000. It was pretty easy at that time.

However, the reverse was really difficult and I finally came from Kolkata to Bangalore in 2004, without my car's NOC. And still drive with WB registration, after paying Karnataka road tax. Only problem I can't sell the vehicle though

Though I asked about help from Kolkata members if they have any contact in PVD to regularize it, didn't get any reply.

Go to AASI (Automobile association of South India). Become a member. They do such service for a fee and are most reliable. it takes a week or so but it gets done. the office of AASI is on St. Marks road.

Fully agree with DieselFan. Far better than all the hassles of going through an agent. 99.9% of them will fleece you.

Default dehypothecation of car.

My car loan got over in Dec-08. I would be getting the NOC from ICICI bank car loan division within next week. The registration was done at Yesvantpur RTO (KA-04). I initially thought I would use a RTO agent at yesvantpur to de-hypothecate my car. Wanted to know if anyone is aware of the process of de-hypothecation; like what forms need to be filled, what would be the actual cost involved to do it on your own (without agent), how many days/weeks does it take for the entire process to get over?
Or is it that using an agent (Pavan Kadam's ctc no for an agent at Yesvantpur RTO) is the easy way out? Pavan, any idea how much the agent might ask for?

BR,
-Nandi

Thanks a lot guys for your help.

DieselFan, csentil, -- joining AASI is a great idea, and taking their help
would be worry free. But will they entertain my signing up just to take their
help for my current purpose, -- especially when I don't leave in south India
anymore, and don't have a local address? Do you have their phone no. (or
email or website) so I could contact them beforehand for clarification?

Pavan Kadam, -- thanks for Mr. Ravi's reference. I'll try calling him up. Do
you happen to have his mobile no. also?

Arindam Ray, -- how long did it take you when you applied for the NOC
yourself in Bangalore?

Thanks again.

Gone to the RTO (Indiranagar) one day with the Bike, took the forms - filled up and took impression of bike chesis number on the form and submitted. They had given a date to come and collect the NOC (I think the date was in 2 days, but definitely was not more than a week). Went there on the mentioned date and got the NOC.

It was different story at Kolkata though, getting a new RC with that NOC took me close to one year, even after taking help of a broker

brat001, I will have the NOC letter from the bank, which is being sent to me by courier. But filling up form 35 by the finance/bank guys might be difficult. So, is it okay if I fill it up, as I would need to sign in anyways, being the registered owner of the car?

Thanks a lot, kvenkatt, for the AASI link. I did call them up, and it
sounded like they might be able to help. However, the thing that puzzles
me is that they said it would take 45 days for an NOC (Arindam Ray got
it in less than a week himself!) and 10 days for a license renewal (the
KA RTO site says it takes only one day! Don't know what's going on!

Arindam Ray, -- it's amazing it took you so long to re-register in Kolkata
when KA seems so efficient! Oh well ...

And I didn't take the NOC for Zen while coming from Kolkata to Bangalore (I didn't want to wait for 1 year ).

I paid the LTT in Bangalore and running it. Only problem I will not be dispose it off

At first, that's what I thought too! However,

1. Arindam Ray had applied for his NOC himself, and got it in less than a week.

2. According to the KA RTO site, license renewal is a same-day job!

Do you mean to say that the delivery times indicated in the RTO site are
assuming palms would be greased ?!
