How to Register a Vehicle in Maharashtra RTO

Like any other state in India, for a vehicle to run on the roads of Maharashtra, it first needs to be registered in one of the numerous RTOs present in the state. The Maharashtra Government has made available the facility of registering a vehicle online. The owner of the vehicle that is to be registered can log on to the website: https://transport.maharashtra.gov.in/1035/Home.

Procedure and documents required for RTO registration

  • Temporary registration of the vehicle: The Maharashtra Government has made it illegal for dealers to sell vehicles to buyers that are not registered by the Motor Vehicles Department of Maharashtra. There are two situations in which the state government allows temporary registration of the vehicles. They are:
  1. If the vehicle requires time for the building of the outer body over the chassis, temporary registration is provided.
  2. If the non-transport vehicles have to be taken to an RTO for registration from the place where they have been bought, temporary registration is provided.

Temporary registration can be availed by the owner of the vehicle via the form C.R Tem.A. Temporary registration of a vehicle in Maharashtra is valid only for a period of 7 days. For non-transport vehicles, the period can still be extended for 30 days.

Registration of new vehicle:

The Government does not allow the use of an unregistered vehicle in the state. Despite the vehicle being registered in another Indian state, it still needs to be registered in Maharashtra before it can be driven on the road. The vehicle can be directly registered via the dealer by including the registration details on his or her trade certificate. Then the vehicle can be brought for inspection by the Motor Vehicle inspector. After all the processes are completed, a new registration number can be assigned to the vehicle. The documents to be submitted to the RTO are:
  1. Form 20 is the form through which the RTO registration of the new vehicle is done.
  2. Form 21 along with the sales certificate. These have to be provided by the dealer who sold the vehicle to the owner.

Vehicle insurance in Maharashtra:

Every vehicle that is registered under the Motor Vehicles Act of 1998 has to be insured. Any person who has suffered from road accident that has been caused by a vehicle can avail compensation under the provision of Section 140. The types of motor vehicular insurance are:
  1. Third-party policy insurance: This is the cheapest insurance plan that there is. It will only cover any damages caused to the third person during the accident and not damage to own vehicles. These policies are usually one-year renewable plans.
  2. The Comprehensive policy insurance:Unlike the third party insurance, comprehensive policy insurance covers both third-party and own damages, including injuries to the person and damage to the vehicles involved.

If for any reason, the vehicle owner wants a re-issue of the insurance certificate, a duplicate may be availed by visiting the office of the concerned company. Vehicular insurance needs to be transferred to the new owner if there is a change of vehicle ownership. To make a claim for insurance in case of a road accident, the following documents need to be submitted at the office of the concerned company:

  1. Driving licence of the vehicle owner.
  2. Certificate of insurance of the vehicle.
  3. Certificate of registration of the vehicle.
  4. The FIR of the incident.
  5. The permit of the vehicle.

  • RTOs in Maharashtra to suspend license for 3 months for traffic offences

    The Supreme Court has directed the RTOs in Maharashtra to suspend the licence of the traffic offenders for a period of 3 months. The traffic department will lay down the law that was supposed to be introduced almost 3 years back. The Supreme Court has laid down the offences for which the traffic department will suspend the licence of the offender for a period of 3 months. The ‘Zero Tolerance’ effect as it is been called by the government will ensure that less and less number of riders commit offences while driving.

    The whole initiative of suspending licence of traffic offenders came into action after a meeting on 18 November, 2018 which was called by a retired Supreme Court judge of India. In the meeting, the Principal Secretary of Maharashtra was also present. Maharashtra has one of the highest accident rates in the country with a staggering 35,800 incidents which have led to 12,200 fatalities. The Supreme Court has ordered the traffic department of every state in the country to prepare an action report which will contain how many licences have been cancelled by the traffic departments of each state.
