Got this Article from Friend, Found it is useful and Informative: Inter-state Transfer of Vehicle – Getting a N.O.C
Those who still believe in ONE India – have probably never traveled between states.
Moving states is a tedious task especially if you have commodities that are state specific like vehicle registration, gas connection, mobile phone number (mobile number portability still not valid between states) etc. You have to register, de-register and re-register. Seems wasteful if you plan to move back after few years, and gets worse if you move to yet another state. While we loathe the fact that India still behaves like a country of countries, the legislature might just be considering the creation of yet another state!!
And if you are reading this, you too, are a victim.
Enough rants. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
INTER-STATE TRANSFER OF VEHICLE
If you have a vehicle registered in one state and planning to move to another (with your vehicle), here are the things you need to look for:
If you are planning to stay in the new state for more than an year, you will be required to register your vehicle with the new RTO – and for this you will require an N.O.C from the state where it was registered earlier (this will get you a new vehicle reg. number and you pay the road tax for that state – you can get a refund of the tax you paid in the last state by applying at the RTO of that particular state).
However if you move for few months (less than 1 year) only, then you may not have to register in the new state but you may still need an N.O.C to show to the cops when they catch you with another state’s reg number (Make sure your N.O.C is not more than 12 months old). But this would also mean that you may have to register your bike once again when you come back – cannot find any authoritative reference on this – If you can, please do comment.

Getting the N.O.C
The N.O.C or the No Objection Certificate is issued by the RTO (Regional Transport Office) of a specific region/state. This confirms that there are no dues on the vehicle and no criminal records registered against it in NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau). There are 4 Steps Involved: Step 1. The Documents
Make sure you have these documents – Driving License, Certificate of Registration (RC Book/ RC Card), Valid Vehicle Insurance Policy, Local Address proof, Clearance letter from the Financier (only in case you had bought your vehicle on loan). Step 2. Police/Crime Records Bureau clearance.
Visit the Asst. Commissioner of Police’s office in you city and ask for a clearance. Most places give you an Enquiry form which you fill in with your personal particulars, vehicle number, Chassis no, engine no. etc. – All details will be present in your RC Card. In some cities you might have to request through a written application letter (handwritten or printed on plain paper).
Following documents need to be submitted here:
- Requisition/Request letter addressed to AC, CRB (Only if required)
- Completed Enquiry form (will be provided to you there)
- Copy of RC book/card.
- Copy of Vehicle Insurance (valid)
- Copy of Driving Licence of the RC owner
- Copy of Local Residential proof (Ration card/DL/Passport/Letter from HR (original)/Bank Pass book).
- Copy of Vehicle purchase Invoice (not mandatory)
- Clearance letter from the Financier (only in case you had bought your vehicle on loan)
Important: Make sure you carry an original of all these documents for verification. If HR Letter is provided as address proof, original will need to submitted (also carry your company ID card, just in case). After all these documents are submitted, they will provide you with a receipt and you would be asked to visit the next day (or as directed) to collect your clearance certificate (Vehicle Enquiry report). The Current address need not be same as the one in RC – just need to be in the same city/state. Step 3. PUC Certificate
Meanwhile, Get a PUC Certificate (Pollution under control) This is usually issued at major petrol pumps in the city after inspecting the vehicle (won’t take long). If not, you can probably find some small garages with desktops near RTO offices providing this service. This will be a computer generated receipt showing that your vehicle emissions are under control (usually they will be). Step 4. The RTO Office
The moment of truth has finally arrived. Visit the RTO office where your bike is registered. Make sure you go to the right one as some cities have more than one – check your RC book/card.
Get a Form 28 – either from vendors near RTO or you can download it for free from the internet here
. Printout/copies of the form 28 are accepted. Fill up the Form 28 – It’s a 2-page form (you can print both sides) where you provide the name of the Registering authority you are moving to – basically the name of city and state you’re moving to, and other particulars most of which you can get from the RC book/card. You need to make three copies of this form and fill up all three of them. Affix a Rs 5 Court fee stamp in one of the filled Forms (can get this from people who sell forms).
Also make a pencil trace of the Chassis number on all the three forms (For bikes this is embossed on the neck of the chassis just below the handle). You can take the trace on any corner of the form – not necessarily on the specified blank – or take the trace on a separate strip of paper and paste it on the form somewhere. Following documents are required:
- Completed Form 28 in triplicate with one of them having a court Fee stamp and Chassis pencil print on all three.
- Vehicle enquiry report (Clearance from CRB – the one you got from Step 2).
- Copy of RC book/card.
- Copy of Vehicle Insurance (Expiry date will be checked)
- Original RC book/card (Yes you need to submit this – will be returned when you collect the NoC grant)
- Copy of the PUC Certificate ( from step 3)
- Reason for moving to another state (not mandatory, depends on RTO) (ridiculous as it may sound, some RTO’s are asking for this now – like transfer letter from company HR etc. or just a simple application addressing the RT Officer)
After verification and submission at RTO office, Pay the fee and collect a receipt and visit the RTO again after a week or as directed by them.
The fee asked for above processes is not high (Rs 20 at CRB office, Rs 50 for PUC and Rs 50 at RTO – this is for Apr 2013) and i suggest you do this without taking help of agents – they would over-charge you and it would be just as tedious. Make sure you carry all the right documents so you dont have to run around the offices. Ideally it will take 2 trips to CRB and 2 trips to RTO and your work is done.
They usually don’t inspect the physical presence of bike at any point but you will just need it for the PUC and Chassis pencil trace.
I have to say even with all this, it’s relatively easier getting N.O.C in Chennai compared to some other cities. For example, in Hyderabad, you need to get a clearance from Traffic police and visit the E-Seva office in addition to the above.
