Also do I need to submit the Affidavit now or should I wait for the expiration date?
The affidavit is needed when your car has been impounded the first time after registration expiration. It does help in completing the release procedure.

Although I cannot confirm this, there have been reported instances of vehicles being impounded from private parking spaces as well.

However, there is little clarity on this subject. It may be a good idea to check with the MCD officers or an agent to see if the affidavit is to be submitted to show your intent about keeping an expired registration vehicle.

The idea is to prevent impounding and save all the subsequent trouble that comes with it.

The affidavit will state that you will not ply the vehicle on the NCR roads. If it is found plying after submitting the undertaking, the car will be towed away straight to the scrapper. There is no recourse for a 2nd offense available in the new law drafted on 20.02.24.

The affidavit also needs to back your claim of a parking space. This is done by:

1. Sharing the approved MCD building plan to show that the parking space is available.

2. Sharing the occupancy certificate of the building with MCD. (There could be alternative documents to show occupancy, such as the power bill)

3. Picture of the parking space

4. No objection certificate from a shared parking owner will also be needed as part of the affidavit annexure.

Once you have submitted the affidavit, you can keep the car in the private parking space after MCD has accepted it.

Should you change your mind, you can apply for the NOC within 1 year of vehicle registration expiration in Delhi. Normal lead times for the NOC are around 3 months.

However, even after getting an NOC, you will need to transport the vehicle outside Delhi to the intended destination through a truck or moving company.

I can understand your emotional connection with the vehicle. Beyond a point though, it will become tough to retain the vehicle unless it is converted into an electric vehicle.

The Government of Delhi is setting up empanelled contractors for the conversion of Diesel vehicles to electric vehicles.


I think we need to give the Government some time to work out the conversion or retro-fitting process and mechanism.

The new policy does encourage owners to convert diesel vehicles (10-15 year olds) to electric vehicles. As of today, I do not think we have any approved agency for electric conversion in Delhi (I may be wrong though).

Keeping the vehicle is a tough task.

Transferring the vehicle out of Delhi may be a better option. And, completing the entire process at least 6 months ahead of the expiration is a bright idea to save any hassles later.

That is what I have learned from the practical events that unfolded over the past 2 weeks.

Best of luck.
Let us hope that we can save hassle and time for peple.

Thanks for the response.

Are diesel cars deregistered/ registration expired after 10 years automatically? My RC states its validity for 15 years which is 2030. So as per 10 year ban my car will be deregistered from RTO database?

The process of seeking NOC from the Delhi Transport Department is a part of the process. If you do not get the NOC, your car will get automatically deregistered in due course of time.

The bottom line is that you cannot keep the car beyond the prescribed limit.

Re: My diesel car crossed the 10-year mark | MCD seizes & tows away the car to a scrapping agency

I have an almost 10-year-old DL registered car. My questions are:

- Can I give it to a relative outside of the NCR for use for a couple of years, while keeping the DL plates?

- Can I apply for an NOC in Delhi to transfer elsewhere after a couple of years when we finally decide to sell it?

- I want to avoid getting it re-registered right now in the relative's name to avoid paying road tax again when the relative only needs it temporarily.

Thanks.

You cannot keep a 10 year old registered vehicle in your name and number plate in Delhi.

It will get de-registered automatically or impounded in due course of time.

So, the only way to beat the ban is to transfer it in your cousin's name and address.

Re: My diesel car crossed the 10-year mark | MCD seizes & tows away the car to a scrapping agency

Just curious, are the scrappers actually scrapping it or selling in other states for far higher price?! I am not familiar with this car but a random check shows it is worth Rs.6 lakhs in KA for a 2013 model! With about 1300kg, it is only Rs.25k scrapped, ignoring towing etc.

With such differences in scrap vs resale value (even if less in North), it would seem practically no car really gets scrapped? Is that why they are so hungry & go right on midnight like domain name squatters? I suppose they have fixed "costs". I suppose it was not a random case of roving patrol finding a vehicle but active tracking and returning exactly on 10.001 day to grab it?

1. No - Your vehicle will itself be illegal with DL numberplate as it's doesn't have a valid registration - if you haven't got NOC from Delhi RTO.

2. Yes - you can apply for NOC in Delhi - but you have to re-register the vehicle within 90 days in the state of your preference before selling it off - maybe even after 2 years beyond NCR zone. Mind well, upto Bhiwani in Haryana & Muzaffarnagar in U.P. falls under NCR.

3. You can save the tax by this way - shifting outside NCR on just having a valid NOC, but after 90 days of NOC issuance, it can be impounded on sight - even outside NCR.

Re: My diesel car crossed the 10-year mark | MCD seizes & tows away the car to a scrapping agency

What were the authorities smoking when they issue a RC for 15 years? Wasn't it known to them at that time what the emissions of the vehicles are and how many are being sold? For the current BS6-2 vehicles, do they have a future projections? It's shameless high handedness and misuse of the laws by the scrap agencies.
Given what the situation is, what proof does the scrapper provides that the vehicle was actually scrapped? As pointed out by @ggkg they might be selling them off in other states.

Re: My diesel car crossed the 10-year mark | MCD seizes & tows away the car to a scrapping agency

I have had experience of getting an NOC from Delhi and re-registering the car into Bhopal, MP. Trust me it's not easy, it takes hell lot of patience. And if you could get the right person for the job, you will sail through easily, Thanks to Parivahan.
Step 1 : Apply for NOC through online, and upload the documents.
Step 2 : Look for the rejection reason, and correct the same, plus do visit the RTO, if need be.
Step 3 : Once NOC is released, Visit the RTO where car needs to be registered and meet the MLO, ( he will give you the necessary forms, and guide you through the process, most of the times they are busy, but have patience and be stubborn) do not look for tout directly, it's of no use. Else, ask them they have their own agents, who are far more trustworthy, than the one you meet in front.

Following documents are necessary for the reregistration :
1. Aadhar Card of Seller and Buyer
2. Original RC, Valid Insurance & Valid No Pollution Certificate
3. 4 Colour photographs of Car( Left, Right, Front, Back) with the buyer and seller. Do carry Passport size of the buyer as well 4 copies, in case.
4. Chaisis no imprint on plain paper through pencil ( 4 nos)
5. Fill out the required forms and submit it to authorities.
6. On the same day, or in a day or two, they will ask you to pay the road tax online, through link sent to your phone. ( Check the details of your car before you pay). Your vehicle will be valued on the Invoice price, and some depreciation will be applied. For a 12 lakh car it will be 1 - 1.5 lakhs, depending on the road tax state to state.
7. Once road tax is paid, the job is done, you will get ur new number through SMS.

P.s.- I lost around 70k on the tout I trusted. And then my father helped out, and asked to meet MLO directly. From there I made it through my own. All the payments were done through parivahan.

Re: My diesel car crossed the 10-year mark | MCD seizes & tows away the car to a scrapping agency

Maybe a naive question but is it somehow possible to get our Hr-26 registered diesel car transferred intra state to a different RTO out of NCR with retaining same ownership and avoiding to pay state tax again and at the same time evading NGT rules.
PS- We will retain the for some highway runs and the car will not ply car in NCR once it has completed its 10 years.

Re: My diesel car crossed the 10-year mark | MCD seizes & tows away the car to a scrapping agency

I have a very simple query. If I am travelling to Delhi from other state and have a plan to stay there for 1 week, may I travel with my 10 plus year old diesel car? I am just getting in and out of Delhi, locally I will be travelling using cab. My car will remain parked in hotel parking. Will this be allowed? Thanks in advance.

Hi..

The rule is simple...you get caught driving a 10 plus year diesel on Delhi roads,
it could get impounded.

Also consider, the non-local cars always attract the attention of Delhi Traffic cops.

Add the two above and you can make a call on the risk

Hope that helps

Regards

Thanks a lot. This simply means entering in Delhi is not allowed at all with 10 plus years old diesel car If I attempt the long drive I am contemplating, I will have to park my car outside NCR region and use cab service from there itself. I had a plan for Pune - Indore - Jhansi - Orccha - Gwalior - Agra - New Delhi - Jaipur - Udaipur - Daman - Pune. The last option will be to change my car itself before this.

Hi

You may park your car just outside the boundaries of NCR/Gurgaon as that the route you will need to take to Jaipur. Think there is link road from somewhere after Mathura to Gurgaon. You may want to do a bit of investigation on this one
