Are you searching for buyers to sell your vehicle? Well, out of many steps involved in selling a “second-hand vehicle”, one of the key steps is the RC Transfer Process i.e. giving the vehicle ownership to the new buyer. It is necessary to transfer the RC according to the laws set up by the Government of India. The vehicle RC transfer process is a crucial and legal step and certain formalities are involved when it comes to transferring vehicle ownership.
RC Transfer Process
The RC Transfer Process after selling the vehicle basically ensures that the vehicle rightfully and lawfully belongs to the new buyer. With this process, all the legal liabilities involved with the vehicle are also transferred to the new owner of the vehicle. Nobody can skip the transfer of ownership while selling the ‘used vehicle’ according to the Indian law of Motor Vehicle Act, 1988. When it comes to transferring RC in the name of the new owner, it not just safeguards the vehicle but also helps to avoid any conflicts related to the sold vehicle in the future.
If you do not what documents and steps are involved in the transfer of RC from the seller to the buyer, then here’s the complete guide:
Step 1: Visit the local Regional Transport Office (RTO)
Step 2: Fill in the application form
Step 3: Submit the required documents
Step 4: Once everything is verified, the RC is transferred within 15 days
You need to carry the below-mentioned documents along with you to submit an application for RC transfer:
- Original copy of Registration Certificate (The document contains complete vehicle registration details)
- Form 29 and 30 (Through these application forms, a person applies for vehicle ownership transfer)
- Passport size photographs
- No Objection Certificate (NOC) ( Only if the vehicle was first registered in some other state)
- Identity Proof
- Address Proof
- Report of NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau), if applicable
- Insurance certificate of the vehicle
- A photocopy of the Pollution under control (PUC) certificate
- The applicable fee for the process
When an applicant submits the above documents, the concerned person verifies them. After the verification process is completed, the RC is transferred in the name of the new owner. You should apply for the vehicle RC transfer within 2 weeks of selling your vehicle. As stated earlier, it may take up to 15 days for vehicle RC transfer, however, this may vary from one RTO to another.
You can also check the status of your RC Transfer Process online using the website of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. You need to enter the vehicle number on the portal after which complete details are available on the page. It is worth mentioning that if you have sold your vehicle without transferring the RC, then the sale is considered illegal in the eyes of the authority. Ideally, the government gives a grace period of 1 year within which you must transfer the vehicle ownership, after which the late fee is applicable to the process.
