Tekurkar's query : I
had purchased a TVS Scooty in Bangalore in November'2001. I have been
transferred to Mumbai. While transporting the vehicle I paid an Octroi
@ 4.5%. I have also applied for NOC at Bangalore RTO. What else do
I need to pay to get my vehicle registered in Mumbai.
Answers : You
should approach your RTO in Mumbai under whose jurisdiction you are
staying now. You will have to show your registration book taxation
book, insurance policy, PUC certificate and the NOC obtained from
RTO Banglore alongwith Octroi receipt. If your vehicle is older than
30 months the RTO will transfer the vehicle immediately, if the vehicle
is not very old you will also have to pay entry tax as per the Maharashtra
Rules. Also you will have to pay the Life Time Tax as stipulated by
the state and later you can obtain refund from Banglore RTO
query : Do
we have any website by wherein we can keep a track of the traffice
movements in Mumbai

however, will take few more years before it becomes reality in Mumbai

Answers : If
you are going to stay at Mumbai for more than 1 year, you have to
get NOC from your present RTO and get the vehicle re-registered at
your new RTO at Mumbai. You have to pay Life Time Tax in Mumbai and
after that you can apply for refund from your old RTO. If you are
going to use the vehicle more than one year in any state you have
to register / re-register the vehicle in that state. If you proposed
to stay more than three months but less than one year you have to
inform your new RTO in Mumbai and pay some certain road taxes. For
re-registration you have to produce your vehicle physically alongwith
all documents together with the NOC.

insurance company as early as possible. Please do it now without further
