You are perfectly within your rights to cross state borders if you wish to with the temporary registration, at least as per the information the dealer gave me when I was getting my TR (telangana as well). I'm currently pottering around in Bangalore with it, my plate should be with the dealer any day now, and I'll be going back to get that install done right after.

Shouldn't be a problem, in summary.

Still works. Go to Bangalore Traffic Police web site. On the right side, click on "SEARCH & PAY VIOLATIONS BY VEHICLE NUMBER". Enter your vehicle number and you can see if you have any violations.

Good evening gentlemen

I have three questions:
  • The TD cars owned by the dealerships are required to carry a permanent registration or not? I have seen many TD cars plying on the roads with red colored number plates and TR ot TC numbers. Are they legal?
  • In fact, on the TR and TC numbers, I believe that even insuring them in second year is not possible. Is it true?
  • Thirdly, do the TD cars require any separate document other than just RC, Insurance, and PUC?

I am planning to file an RTI regarding the same, I need to file it with the RTO or the transport ministry?

I believe dealers are required to use red and white plates before selling the car...

RTO should be the safe bet. Because they should be knowing all the rules regarding issue of number plates (of various types).

Cars that are in the possession of the dealership, and used for purposes of demonstration, sales promotion, and transit prior to permanent registration, carry the red plate with white lettering called "Trade Certificate" - TC. RTOs grant blocks of TC registration numbers to dealers to use on their cars. So, to the best of my knowledge (disclaimer: I am a lay person) TC plates are completely legal. Also, since a test drive is part of the sales promotion, it is legal to use a car for test drives that carries the TC number plate.

I am not exactly sure how insurance cover works for these cars, but I am guessing that the dealership will buy a bulk/blanket policy covering all cars that they have in their possession. Also, since the cars are (mostly) less than a year old, they don't require separate PUC.

TR is a "Temporary Registration" and is a completely different matter. This is a registration that is valid for one-three months (depending on RTO rules in that State), and the car is registered & insured in the name of the owner. Full life time road tax is not collected in this case, and I think the rules regarding residency requirements are relaxed with respect to temporary registration. Picture this scenario. You have permanent address in Vijayawada (in Andhra Pradesh State) but the only dealer for the car you want to buy is in Hyderabad (Telangana State). So you buy the car in Hyderabad with a temporary registration, drive it to Vijayawada and complete all registration formalities before the temp registration expires.

Thanks for your response gentlemen.

And since dealers receive the TC in a block, so all the demo cars have to furnish the same TC, or the TC for every car has to be unique? What I have read in CMVR clause 39, the one TC can be used only on one vehicle at a time, or I am missing something?
