Proposal to allow transfer of old number to new car

  •  

The transport department has come up with a draft proposal, which if approved would allow transfer of old registration number to the new car or 2-wheeler.

Those who wish to use their old registration plates on their new car or 2-wheeler will be able to do so by submitting an application online. The proposed processing fee for cars is Rs. 5,000 and Rs. 500 for scooters and motorcycles. However, this amount is yet to be finalized and is pending cabinet approval. Once the payment is made online, a slip will be generated, and the number will be registered. The registration number then will have to be sent to the dealer, who will enter it into the system. Later, you will have to go to the MLO who will issue a different number for the old vehicle.

Currently, the transport department receives 5-7 applications per day, but this number is expected to rise once the scheme is fully implemented. Further, a total of 4 VIP number categories have been finalized including one which allows owners to have personalized numbers of their choice.
