I may have some complication in Car Exchange. Please read my situation and try and help me
I had bought car from Thane (where I was residing on Rent in a flat) MH04 registration, so obviously I had submitted rental agreement and all those papers to Thane RTO
My car loan is from ICICI no problems there
My car RC book was old (paper make not card make as it is done now)
My car loan finished last year and I got all the required docs from ICICI bank in Pune - no problems there
Now I have shifted completely to Pune (MH14) from the last 6 years and when I enquired with RTO agents in Thane They said that you would need to file Hypothecation removal from Thane Seemingly no problems there
But the problem is that since my RC book is paper type, when I file hypothecation removal in Thane RTO The agents said that RTO will firstly cancel your hypothecation and then convert your paper RC book to Card RC book and send it on the address on your RC book (which is the rental flat in Thane)
I have no contacts there with the current occupants & postmen as well, so if it goes to this address nobody will collect it and it will be sent back to Thane RTO which is still OK
But if it comes back to Thane RTO as per the process the owner of the car has to collect it from Thane RTO by showing address proof
I was even offering the best RTO agents in Thane a very a good HEFTY fees to get the RC book (card type) converted.. but nobody seems to be completely sure that they can achieve that
They said if it does not happen (depends on mood of RTO saheb log / sirs) Then it is your risk and your RC card!!
My next questions to experts is
1) Has anybody faced any such situations in cross RTO Hypothecation removal in Maharashtra?
2) Is there any workaround? Does anybody know any better RTO agents / powerful agents in Thane? Fees is not an issues as of now
3) 1 agent told me that Sir If you are anyway planning to exchange your old car at new car dealerships The EXCHANGE guys / etc @ dealerships do everything Is this true?? and if it is - Will new car dealerships in Pune take care of this Cross RTO exchange?
4) Also will new car dealerships / Exchange Guys in Pune able to take care (obviously with FEES) of this process for my Old car when I want to purchase a new car from them? Because remember my car is Thane RTO registered
