The search (button ?) is on the top, the radio buttons for Chassis number and Regn. number are unselected, .

The pic/print was after search term was entered & selection of radio button option (in this case Reg no). I do not see any highlight or lowlights (enable/disable) for further options in the print, not any dot in radio button.

How did you get that?

Went through all the posts. Some facts emerge:

(1) If it is a government department generated document, there should be a logo or name of the concerned department that has been "authorised" to undertake such a job. Without such a identification, the concerned department if any, can be hauled up.

(2) There is NO provision to black list a motor vehicle based on the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 (233 pages) , Central Motor Vehicles Rules,1989 (174 pages) or even the Rules of the Road Regulations, 1989 ( 5 pages). Apart from these three applicable laws, there are no other laws for motor vehicles in the country.

(3) There has to be a certain law under the ambit of which these authorities can act. If its anything outside the law, any High Court responding to a writ petition (with a personal case) or a public interest litigation (with as many documents) if filed, can put whosoever is concerned (the so called "authority" ) in a precarious situation.

(4) RTI application if filed with the concerned RTO may perhaps help in getting documentary evidence and reasons if any, if at all the RTO has done such a job, obviously by overreaching the powers delegated to it under the above three laws of the land.

Thanks! Definitely seems to be about the car's ownership status not being perfect. Copying a post from a BHPian here where his stolen car was also blacklisted.

Mr. PS just called me a couple of weeks before to inform me that he now had all his documents sorted and tried to register the car in his name, but is unable to do it online as the car is blacklisted.
Nice! Glad to see that this method works at the RTO level to safeguard the seller. I have seen it mentioned but never heard whether it works after someone trying it.

What did PS do to get it registered? Was any further involvement from your part required for PS to resolve it?

Anyone got recent experience of getting the blacklist tag removed. Car is coming up for RC renewal etc but it is blacklisted for something in 2014 . We were using an agent to manage things but he has not been able to make any headway and has returned the documents. Would be nice to know the reason why the car is blacklisted, would a trip to the RTO help with this and getting this removed?

Thanks in advance.

On the Vahan website when I checked to see the status of my car, out of curiosity, I find a local RTO (my vehicle is not registered there) has blacklisted my car for pollution . There is an FIR number and date also. Question is how did they know? No one checked my pollution on the said date. I got my PUC done last October and it is valid for a year. Interestingly, the PUC detail on that same website for my car says - N/A

I am in two minds whether to go to the RTO and get a clarification on this or just sit tight and see when I get a legal notice.

Is there anyone else who has faced this?

A couple of other Kolkata BHPians have faced this. There are mobile pollution checking units stationed at various places that measure the pollutants in the air when your car passes by. This is done at random. The measurement is done on an average basis, so if there's a smoke belching bus near your car, the air is bound to be more polluted, and that pollution is attributed to your car. I might be using some wrong technical terms here but this is what has happened. In fact, one BHPian even turned off his ignition while passing one such mobile unit, and yet his car got blacklisted!

Unfortunately I cannot guide you through the actual process since both of them took the help of agents to get this issue sorted. I think they were charged a couple of thousand rupees for the same. You can contact an RTO agent for more clarity on the process.

Just out of curiosity, which RTO has blacklisted your car? Asking because previously this was only done in the main city limits. Will have to be more alert if they're spreading out to the suburbs as well.

Thanks!

I was killing time browsing random news on the web the other day and came across this on cartoq website.

https://www.cartoq.com/tiger-shroff-jackie-shroff-cars/

I searched one of the car registration number (a BMW 5 series) on the vahan website and ended up with the following. Though it's not related to the thread title about selling a blacklisted car, but the reason for blacklisting has been mentioned on the website.
