Having said that, how many days will you stay in Bangalore. If it is less than 6 months no need to pay taxes etc.
As per rule - if it is more than 6 months you need to pay the taxes in migrated state and after 1 year you need to change the number. TAI
-ian Figoan can throw more light on it. OT
- I had driven a DL registered car in BLR for 6 months without any issues. But that was way back in 2005-06.
Accidentally spotted this thread while browsing for new threads. Thanks for calling my name out Anushuman.

also whats the best way to take my car from Delhi to Bangalore. is it a smooth drive through high way from Delhi to Bangalore ?
Thanks again I look forward to your feed back.
threeace777 - Firstly, welcome to Bangalore. Here is my understanding in this regard.
To what I have seen so far, I don't really think Bangalore Cops are interested in other state vehicles as I see almost all states' vehicles moving around here. I am here for more than 1.5 Yrs and was never stopped by cops for this reason. Yet, once for Sunfilms, but they never questioned about the Registration. Even if it would happen so, I have done whatever is needed, so no worries.
So to your questions, it's basically about the duration you are planning to be in Bangalore. The process in general is, you need to get a NOC from the existing RTO and should pay the Road Tax to the new RTO within a month's time. Beyond which, it attracts penalty for each month delayed. With Road Tax being paid, you are safe to fly in the City for up to 1 year without changing to KA Registration Number, beyond which you should.
So, if you are going to be here for just a short while, you may choose to skip this tedious procedure. However, you should be in a position to convince the cops if such a situation would arise, else, you will land up paying the hefty Road Tax of Karnataka with Handsome Penalties.
Otherwise, you got to do the entire procedure, however, you have a catch that it's not in your name. So, little more complicated, but not impossible. You may have a look at this thread (Need Advice - Re-Registration Process with RTO KR Puram
) for more valuable information.
