On purchasing a second-hand car, it is essential to transfer the ownership of the vehicle within 30 days or else a fine of Rs.500 will need to be paid. The ownership of the vehicle has to be done at the RTO in Chandigarh where you reside. If the new owner does not belong to the state, he or she will have to obtain a No Objection Certificate or NOC from the original RTO to initiate the process for the transfer of ownership.
