Step by Step Procedure for Application of Transfer of Ownership of Vehicle in Mumbai
On purchasing a used car, you will be required to initiate the process of ownership transfer for the same within a period of 30 days from the date of purchase of the vehicle. The process of transfer of ownership of a used vehicle is simple. You can follow the steps mentioned below:
Step 1: No Objection Certificate (Conditional)
You will be required to procure a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the traffic department. However, this is required only in case you are buying the vehicle from a different RTO area. The NOC for your vehicle has to be obtained by submitting a duly-filled Form 28 to the RTO where the vehicle is originally registered. In case the vehicle is registered in any RTO outside Mumbai, a duly-filled up Form 29 has to be submitted as well to the original RTO.
Step 2: Visit the RTO with the prescribed documents
To start the process of ownership transfer of used vehicles, you will be required to visit the local RTO with the prescribed documents. The required set of documents that you will be required to produce include the original RC of the vehicle, Form 20, Form 27, Form 33, Form 60 or Form 61, NOC, attested copy of proof of address, attested copy of PUC certificate, attested copy of valid driving licence of the owner of the vehicle, passport size photos of the new owner, and PAN card.
Step 3: Submit all the documents
Submit all the documents along with the prescribed fees for the RC transfer of the vehicle. In general, the process takes around 30 days. Once you are done with all the formalities, you can check the status of the ownership transfer by visiting the official website.
Step 4: Re-register the vehicle (in case of inter-state transfer)
In case the vehicle was originally registered in any RTO outside the state, the same has to be re-registered with the RTO of your area. For this purpose, you will be required to submit a set of documents that include the original RC of the vehicle, Form 20, Form 27, Form 33, Form 60 or Form 61, NOC, attested copy of proof of address, attested copy of PUC certificate, attested copy of valid driving licence of the owner of the vehicle, passport size photos of the new owner, and PAN card.
Step 5: Pay the road tax
If the vehicle which you have purchased was originally registered outside Mumbai, you will be required to pay the road tax to the local RTO for the purpose of re-registration of the vehicle. The road tax will be charged on the basis of the price of the vehicle on the original invoice. In this regard, it should also be noted that the new owner of the car will be able to get a refund of the original road tax paid by the previous owner. This refund is provided on the basis of the actual price of the car and the age of the car. The new owner will be required to submit a set of documents to avail the refund.
