Default Buying motorcycle from out of state , what formalities should I look at ?

Can you please advice what would the formalties be in terms of tax & registration. Buying a used royal enfield from Gujarat for use in Mumbai. I am a resident in Mumbai whereas Gujarat is the home state for me, buying from a friend there.

First thing is - do not even consider buying one from outside. But if you've decided, then...
1. Ensure the RE has clean papers
2. Get the sale receipt from the owner
3. Get forms 28/29/30 signed (not sure on the numbers, but there're 3 forms). One of them being transfer of ownership & other for reregistration, third one not sure for what.
4. Get an NOC from the local police station. Local police station is the one from where you buy, i.e. from Gujarat
5. Submit all the papers duly at Mumbai RTO after getting the vehicle's PUC certificate
6. You'll need to clear commercial tax at Mumbai
7. Mumbai RTO will send all these papers to Gujarat RTO for verification
8. Once the verification is done & papers get back to Mumbai RTO, you'll have to pay the road tax for MH, get a new registration number & ride away happily. I heard that one need not pay the entire tax amount, but only the difference. Eg. if GJ govt charges 8% & MH being 9%, you'll have to pay the 1%. Don't ask me what happens when its vice versa as I haven't experienced the latter.

Good Luck

He will have to pay the entire road tax for MH, and produce this document to get a refund of the road tax at GJ.

However, the procedures are a real pain!

Yep; I heard this one too. BTW, everyone in this country knows giving money to Govt is one way traffic. What goes in, stay in forever

Strongly agree

I know this as I've once suffered buying an Rx from KL & tried getting it registered in TN somewhere between 1999/2000. It took about 9 months & the attempt was still not complete & I gave up hope & returned back. Those 9 months were really horrible & I'd to hide out from every single cop & made even several death races to evade bribe & cops!!!

Even if I showed up the documents stating that the vehicle was submitted for reregistration, they talk some law point (which I politely believed) as the odds were always 2-3 cops against me.

That's why I initially said...

Default Modified Bullet a.l.a Harley davidson

Friends,

My friend is now planning to gift his modified bullet to me.

Yes, when he was in Hyd, he invested lot of time and money to build this 2 wheel beast. But within few months he sold his bike to some dealer and went to Canada for pursuing MBA.

But due to some unavoidable situation, the bike was seized from the counter-party and came back to my friend Garage itself.
Now the bike is in Hyderabad and my friend asking me to take care of his bike. Since Iím in Chennai I have to bring that beast along with some long awaiting process pointed out by Aargee.

Is it possible to drive this vehicle with HYD registration and having only NOC certificate? Else we also need to pay road tax in Tamil Nadu? Kindly clarify.

But what ever may be the case I have decided to bring the bullet to Chennai; To know the reason please find below the pictures of this bullet.

@Camon - Pls go through this post - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...noc-valid.html (For how long is an NOC valid?)

Rollin' Thunda has given some great points, especially on page 2. However that's applicable in AP, which may or may not applicable fully or partly in TN. However from my old experience, you can get away with NOC, CC tax clearance certificate & little bit of dialog skills.

Go through the thread given by aargee. IMO just pay the TN road tax and use the bike. I just paid KA road tax for my KL regd bike and have not faced any issue in the past 6 years.

You might've obtained an NOC from KL isn't it to pay the road tax in KA? I'm assuming, these guys will never allow to pay a road tax unless they see original copy of NOC. But wait a minute, without RTO's help, how could the CT (commercial tax) dept verify the NOC?

Getting little confused!!!

You don't need NOC to pay road tax. NOC is only required when you want to register the vehicle.
