Need For Vehicle Registration In Maharashtra

As per law, a vehicle dealer cannot deliver an unregistered vehicle to the buyer. A vehicle must be temporarily/permanently registered before it is handed over to the purchaser. Also, it is prohibited for any person to drive an unregistered vehicle in any public place in India. Similar to vehicle RC, a two wheeler insurance too is mandatory for all two-wheeler vehicles in the country.
