Initially in b'lore cops never used to catch 4 wheelers, but noe a days they even hunt down for 4 wheelers. Since b'lore in a cosmopolitan city they know that its an easy catch for them...the best thing is keep away from these mamu's......even if our papers are up to date, they will still find some reason to harass......

Hi Guys,

My knowledge is limited but I have query about re-registration of cars. Let me put a scenario :

Lets say I am buying a car say costing 5 lakhs. I have an option of registering it in Chandigarh and Mohali (Punjab) . Chandigarh is cheapest as compared to Punjab. Now my ques is -

1) if I get it registered it in either city ( Chandigarh / Mohali ) and I move to Gurgoan/Noida/Bangalore/Pune/Hyderabad.
Is it mandatory to re-register in that particular state/city. If yes what will be the tentative costs in the above mentioned cities.

2) Any additional cost I have to incur while I move to the cities mentioned above.

3) Now if Re-registration is mandatory then I can see many cars in Chandigarh from UP,WB,Karnatka, haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan. Are All of these cars run illegally in Chandigarh.

4) And lets say If I come back to state where I registered my car after an year or so. Do I have to register it again ?

5) Is practically possible to run the car registered in Chandigarh/Mohali in the cities mentioned above, without re-registration.

What are your thoughts team-bhp gurus ..

After moving to a new state, you need to pay the road tax as applicable (this is calculated based on the age of the vehicle) within 1 month and you need to re-register within 1 year. The road tax is high in southern states for eg, it is around 8% of invoice value in AP & Karnataka for vehicles that are less than 2 yrs old. Re-registration does not cost much... (just around 1-2k max)..
After paying tax in the new city or after re-registering (I not too sure here), you can apply for refund of tax in your old city. The tax will be refunded again on basis of how long the car was used there.

Might/might not be.. Some states insist on paying the road tax and not on re-registration ....

Same rule as mentioned above applies.

Delhi area does not have problem with outside state cars. With CH or PB you are completely safe. Even with KA I have never been penalized

Forget other state registrations! My pal got pulled over by the cops about 3 weeks ago for riding a TN-69 (Tuticorin) registered bike. Chennai and subs are TN-01 to TN-22. (He was asked queried for about 10 mins, they were apparently checking to see if the bike was a stolen one, but then they decided that the lettering on the number plate wasnt of the right size and decided to fine him)

Being pulled over by the cops for registration/number plate and other minor things depends on only one thing: The level of moolah in the constable's pocket. If you got up on the wrong side of the bed, this is bound to happen

I suggest that each of you who are facing this registration problem get a + sticker, indicating that you are a doctor:P

I've asked my younger bro, who is a HR trainer and returns home occasionally quite late at night, to do this. Whenever the cops stop him, they see the sticker in the front windshield (the rear too) and let him pass.

In Chennai, the cops are very very lenient towards docs and I (nor my bro) have never been ticketed so far (touchwood) for any minor lapses!

But the flip side: One day when a policeman stopped my bro and sighted the doc sticker asked which medicine he could take for a headache. Unflinchingly my bro said: Crocin.

Another day my bro is parking in a busy area and the police vehicle with the microphone is yelling umpteen times: Doctor, please park your vehicle elsewhere. My bro is thinking: Stupid doctor, cant even hear it being repeated so many times (when actually he should've been pulling out his vehicle)...lol

I also thought of this once. My mother said, suppose you are passing a place where an accident has occured, and people/police ask you to help the person or atleast check whether the person is ok or not. what would you do?

I passed the idea [IMG]images/icons/icon12.gif[/IMG]

What would I do? I would help out but my bro wouldnt be able to!

Mercifully there arent many accidents around as there are moolah-hungry policemen

NCR encomapsses 3 different states, Haryana, UP and Delhi.
Due to this reason there are lots of such cars on delhi roads

also Delhi is positioned in such a way on the national highway system that lot of traffic from outside states needs to pass through.
Though technically you should pay road tax of the place of residence, in delhi this is not at all a problem due to the fact that every day hunderds of outside state cars ply.
So the police cant even think of catching outside state vehicles, its such a herculean task!

So if you are going to stay in delhi, you can safely use your CH/PB registered car without the fear of being fined for the same.
However you may be stopped for things like
1. Extra fog lamps
2. Dark tints
3. Over speeding
4. Other rule breaking
irrespective of your number plate!
