Insurance is like a spare tyre. You may not require it, but not having one is not an option.

Mumbai Transport and Vehicle Registration Process

The prime objective of the Motor Vehicles Department in Mumbai is to ensure the implementation of laws and regulations formed under the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988. The department offers a range of services that includes registration of vehicles, issuing of driving licences, the collection of road taxes, amongst others.

Need For Vehicle Registration In Mumbai

Registration of a motor vehicle is compulsory in India to prove the ownership of the vehicle. The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 prohibits the use of an unregistered vehicle by any person in any public place in India. The Registration Certificate (RC) has to be carried by the owner of the vehicle at all times and the registration mark of the vehicle has to be displayed at the front and rear of the vehicle. Driving a motor vehicle without a valid Registration Certificate (RC) is a punishable offence in India.

Temporary Registration of Vehicle

Vehicles that are supposed to be taken to the registering department from the dealer’s showroom can be temporarily registered. A temporary registration certificate is valid for a period of 7 days and its validity can be further extended to 30 days in case of non-commercial/private vehicles. For temporary registration of a vehicle in Mumbai, an application can be made in Form C.R Tem.A to the RTO in the jurisdiction of which you live or have the place of business.

Permanent Registration of Vehicles In Mumbai

A motor vehicle should be registered with the registering authority within 7 days from the delivery of the vehicle to the buyer (excluding the period of temporary registration). The following documents must be furnished to the registering authority for vehicle registration:

  • Application Form 20
  • Sales Certificate in Form 21 provided by the dealer of the vehicle
  • Vehicle roadworthiness certificate in Form 22, 22-A provided by the vehicle manufacturer
  • Purchase invoice of the vehicle (for vehicles attracting lifetime road tax)
  • Two wheeler insurance certificate
  • Temporary registration certificate (if any)
  • Address proof of the applicant
  • Bill of entry (required for imported vehicles)

  • Customs clearance certificate (in case of imported vehicles)
  • Design approval copy from the Transport Commissioner (in case of trailer vehicles)
  • Entry tax payment receipt if the vehicle has been purchased from state other than Maharashtra
  • Payment of applicable fee

Registration of Vehicles Brought From Other State To Mumbai

If a vehicle is registered in any other state outside Maharashtra, it can be used in Mumbai without the need for re-registration for 12 months. After this period, a vehicle must be re-registered in Maharashtra. To do the same, the applicant must obtain an NOC from the original registering authority of the vehicle and submit the same to the RTO in Mumbai along with the following documents.

  • Form 20 and Form 26 (duly filled)
  • Form 33 (For the recording of change in the address of the applicant)
  • Form 29 and Form 30 (required in case of transfer of vehicle ownership)
  • Form AT and Form FT
  • No Objection Certificate (NOC) in Form 28 from the original registering authority along with financer’s consent and chassis print of the vehicle
  • An affidavit from the owner of the vehicle stating that the vehicle has not been involved in a crime, theft, or accident
  • Payment of prescribed fee
  • Original vehicle Registration Certificate (RC)
  • Insurance document of the vehicle
  • Pollution Under Control certificate

Fancy Number Registration In Mumbai

As per Maharashtra Motor Vehicle Rules 1989, an application for fancy number reservation can be made to the RTO/DTO during the office hours. After a fancy number is allocated to the applicant, he/she must pay the prescribed fee determined for that number during office hours. If there are more applications for a particular vehicle number, the same is allocated by way of auction.
