I will give it a miss as well. From what I have read on this forum, Owning Skoda cars in itself is a hassle due to the service centers, however if you add these sort of issues, it is simply inviting trouble.

I will drop this car and go ahead and get a City fourth Generation.

Thank you everyone for your advise.
It is indeed a hassle to get anything in RC corrected in our country. Luckily for me all is in order. On a side note: If you are still keen on Rapid 1.6TDI, MH14 registered, my car is up for sale. The only catch is that I am in Delhi now so would need to arrange for transportation.

After my 16th birthday, I applied for a motorcycle without gear licence and to my surprise, they issued a motorcycle with gear licence, talked to my RTO agent about it and he advised me to use it as it is.

After my 18th birthday, I surrendered that licence and got an all-new one made for LMV and MCWG.

Again had to re-apply for an all-new licence as my licence was a paper booklet type, and no digital record was present on RTO's servers. Was required to pass a proper driving test before finally receiving my current DL.

Can attest to this first hand.

Once I was stopped in HR while driving from Rajasthan to Delhi in my KA registered car, and asked for papers. I confidently shared all papers including the smartcard RC I had in my wallet, and was cleared to proceed.

After driving for a few kilometres, I realized that I had actually handed over the Car RC to my wife before starting, as I was leaving the car with her and flying back. So the RC smartcard I had handed over for checking was for my 2 wheeler, which would have had nothing in common with the car RC except for the "KA" (even the RTOs were different with the car in KA53 and bike in KA04). Hilarious as well as facepalm moment rolled into one!

I am currently looking for a car for my father and have set my heart on a new 4th Generation Honda City. My father however has his heart set on a Skoda Rapid 1.6 TDI (used), but it is tough to find a good example (we live in Nashik).

He finally managed to find a 2012 Skoda Rapid 1.6 TDI Ambition which was Central Mumbai registered (MH01). The car looks fine, and its engine feels good too, however, on seeing its RC I can find multiple mistakes.

1. The car is a 1.6 TDI Ambition, however its RC says 1.6 MPI Ambition, i.e. Petrol.
2. The car's engine capacity is given as 1798 CC which is the Octavia or the Superb I think.
3. The car's unladen weight is given as 1454 kg and RLW is 2074. I am not sure which car is 1454 kg, but the RLW of 2074 kg is for a superb.
4. The owner's name is wrongly spelt as well.

I thought the RC might be fake, but the same details are reflected on the RTO's portal for this vehicle. It seems the owner had lost his RC and had a duplicate issued because the RC says Purpose : DUP.

This makes me wonder what's happening and how can one RC have so many mistakes and whether to trust tis car or not.

Would you all please advice if you have seen any instances of so many mistakes in one RC or could there be something Fishy?

MODS: If I have posted in the wrong place, I request you to kindly move the post.

Thank you Everyone.
Hi,
My recent purchase corolla altis was mentioned as petrol instead of diesel. The first owner had pointed it out when he got RC 10 years back, the RTO guys changed in the smart card but in system it was still petrol. I realised when I went for a PUC. Pure laziness on part of RTO employees.
I got mine updated in a day. Basically they have to send data to Parivahan central IT department and it gets done in a flash. The central guys know such errors are common. Its the local guys (RTO plus agents) who don't want to take the pain of sending.
All the corrections in your case will be made at one go. You'll need copy of invoice and insurance for proof. Just get invoice and check if everything is genuine- match with the physical car and then buy the car. Then just go to RTO and push for changes.
