What is Vehicle Registration

Vehicle Registration refers to the registration of a vehicle (two-wheeler/four-wheeler) with the government authority. Its purpose is to establish a link between the vehicle and the owner or user of the vehicle. It dictates that a vehicle is undoubtedly yours as there is a unique identification number.

Meaning and Relevance

The registration of your vehicle means that you have informed the state authority that you own the vehicle and you intend to use it on public road. For registration, you need to pay a road tax at the local Regional Transport Office (RTO). Just like a motor insurance policy is a must, having a registration certificate is also important and mandatory in the country. Not having a registration certificate can result in your vehicle being detained or you having to pay a hefty fine.
