Need advice on driving a new car (RC not received yet) from Chennai to Kerala
I am planning to take my cousin's new Altis to Kerala on 02-Oct from Chennai. The vehicle was registered last week and I have the receipt from RTO for the registration that was done. Please advice whether I can take the vehicle with this receipt, road tax and insurance as it would take couple of weeks for getting the RC book. Do I need to take a no objection letter from my cousin?

rajesh_sg, since the car has been registered, you would have been allotted the registration number the same night or the next day. Once you have the registration number, get the plates from the dealer. I'm assuming you have the plates already.
What you need to carry with you: (all documents mandatory and in original)
0. Your driving license
1. Lifetax paid token / Registration receipt - this wil have the owner's name & engine / chassis number
2. Insurance policy
3. Vehicle delivery invoice
4. A No Objection Letter (not to be confused with NOC) from your cousin stating he / she has given you permission to drive the car. Mention your driving license number in the letter.
If your cousin is travelling with you, you don't need the NOL.
Once you get the RC, please get the number endorsed in the insurance policy.

hrag has compiled almost all the points.
The most important for the car is
1. Tax paid token/challan,
2. Insurance cover note / policy
3. Delivery note / invoice
The no objection letter is required from MV act point of view. Mostly no one questions unless there is some problem or issue. So, better to have.
I travelled with "For Registration" the very next day I got the car to chennai from bangalore. I carried all the above stuff mentioned.

I had taken my car to Kerala within 1 week of registration. I had carried all receipts with me.
You please carry all receipts and have a nice journey.

Its NOT a problem. Unless you plan to visit nepal/bhutan where physical RC is mandatory.
