    State to state bike registration transfer requires the owner of the bike to go through an established process and complete the documentation process as per the RTO rules. The fundamental procedure includes getting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the RTO where your bike was originally registered and registering the vehicle in the state you have moved to. The NOC comes with an expiry date before which the bike must be re-registered with the new RTO. The validity of the NOC can be extended if need be.

    For instance, you are moving from Pune to Bangalore, you will first need to obtain an NOC from the RTO in Pune, then get your bike shifted to Bangalore, and finally apply for registration of the bike in Bangalore. There is one more thing to remember. The charges and road tax that you must have paid in Pune will be different from what is supposed to be paid in Bangalore. Considering that the taxes in Bangalore are higher than that in Pune, you will have to pay in excess to what you have already paid in Pune. In some cases, the opposite might happen, you might get a refund if the taxes in the new location are lower than that of the previous location. The process will also take into account the value of depreciation your vehicle must have gone through.

    For Vehicles Purchased On Loan

    In case you have purchased your bike with the help of a bank or a financing agency, you will also require an NOC from the bank. The bank will require you to submit essential documents supporting the fact that you are moving to a new city. These documents can be your job appointment letter, employment transfer letter, proof of address, and other records as stated by the bank. The bank will process your application and provide you with the NOC after due verification.

    To understand the whole process better, read the following step by step process to transfer your bike RC.

    Step 1: Obtain the NOC From The RTO Where The Vehicle Is Registered Currently

    Taking the previous example, if you wish to move to Bangalore from Pune, you will be needed to submit an application in the Pune RTO along with Form 27 and Form 28. If you have purchased your vehicle on EMI, you will be needed to submit the bank NOC as well. Following are some of the other important documents:

    • Bike insurance paper
    • Emission test certificate/PUC Certificate
    • Bike RC
    • Chassis imprint of the vehicle
    • 4 photocopies of Form 28
    • Application requesting the NOC

    To make the whole process faster, you may obtain an NOC from the local police and submit it to the local RTO.

    Step 2: Get Your Bike Transported To The New Location

    Once you obtain the NOCs, you may get your bike transported to the new location by train, carrier, or self-driving based on what seems to be the cheapest and best mode.

    Step 3: Re-Register Your Bike In The New Location

    Once you get the bike transported, you may apply for re-registration of the bike in the RTO where your vehicle is supposed to be now registered in. In the example mentioned-above, if you have moved to Bangalore, you will be needed to submit the application for bike RC transfer in the Bangalore RTO along with the documents mentioned below:

    • Form 29 and Form 30 (Duly filled)
    • Existing bike RC
    • Photocopy of insurance document
    • Copy of the NOC received from the RTO where the vehicle was previously registered
    • Bike PUC
    • Chassis Imprint of the vehicle.
    • Proof of residence
    • Identity proof

    The registration process may involve certain charges. The Octroi will be ascertained based on the current estimated value of your vehicle after deducting the depreciation. Once the RTO performs its standard verification process successfully, it issues a new registration for your bike. The whole process may consume about two weeks.

    Is Bike RC Transfer Required If The Vehicle Is Moved Temporarily?

    If you are moving your bike to a new place for a few months, you may do it without transferring your vehicle RC. In fact, you can ride in any other state for about a year with no issues.

    Refund Of Road Tax

    In case the road tax in the city you have moved to is lower than what you have paid to resister your vehicle earlier, you may apply for a tax refund from the new RTO. The refund would be subjected to the age of the vehicle and the depreciation applied to it. The refund process may take about 6 months’ time. To apply for the refund, you will be needed to submit the following documents:

    • Application requesting tax refund
    • Duly filled Form No.16 (self-validated)
    • RC copy with bike registration number
    • The copy of RC with past vehicle number
    • Insurance document and new registration number
    • Proof of address
    • ID proof

    What To Do If The NOC Is Unutilized

    For any reason, if you change your mind and cancel your plan to shift. You will be needed to cancel the NOC that you have obtained. The process can get a bit complicated as you will be needed to get a Non Utilisation Certificate (NUC) from the RTO for which the NOC was issued. The NUC is a document confirming the fact that the NOC remained unused by the applicant. However, the NOC cancellation process may vary from one state to another.

    Conclusion

    For those who are not aware of the bike RC transfer process, things can get really complicated. Though they can take help of agents or brokers who deal with such cases on a regular basis, it would require them to spend unnecessarily. By knowing the basic process, they can save significantly. On the other hand, the whole process may take up several weeks. If you do not have enough time to devote to the bike RC transfer, you may approach an agent or a broker who can help you with the whole process.
