I have a concern and probably the only place I would get some peace of mind is TAI
(as always). I am planning to shift to Bangalore by Sep end or Oct starting. I would like to take my Polo along.
I have few questions on which I need your support:
1. My car is still under HP by SBI bank.
SBI will allow you to transfer car to Bangalore, you need to contact bank for further details on formalities.
2. I do not want to change my number. (At present Delhi number)
Not changing Delhi number is all right if you are in Bangalore for a short period, but something more than 6 months will be hell in Bangalore with a Dl registration.
3. How do I get the road worthiness to drive it in Blr.
If your car is in good running condition then just drive it straight to Bangalore.
4. What should be the process ? Mine is a 2014 Petrol (H) model.
Process for what? to Transfer to Bangalore? If yes then apply with your Delhi RTO for NOC and transfer to the given Bangalore RTO where you intend to stay. After you receive NOC and Transfer you need to produce an ID and address proof along with required tax for re-registration. Later you will get a refund of the tax paid previously at Delhi RTO minus the years run in Delhi (upon proof of your car registered in Bangalore) after 3-6 months time.
5. How much road tax I have to pay without changing the number ?
Without changing DL number you need not pay anything if you intend to travel in Bangalore for a very short time. If for a longer time than you have to transfer and pay tax.
6. Should I drive it down to Blr from Delhi or send it via carrier service provider. What would be the process of sending it via carrier service provider ?
Cheap transport agencies will charge 15000 who may put your car on a lorry, but you have to risk some damage to car, while Agarwal packers and movers will charge you 22000 where they will transport your car in a car cargo container. Generally these people take 10-15 days. Best option is if you are a safe driver on highway, than you can drive it yourself in 3 days max time period.
7. How much road tax I have to pay if my carís invoice cost is let us say Rs. 6.20 lakhs ?
You may have to pay around 90000 (109000 for full 15 years) for around 13 years in Bangalore while you may get a refund of 45000 (50500 for full 15 years) since 2 years gone. These are approximate figures, please check for exact figures with respective RTO of Delhi as well as Bangalore.
8. What do you suggest I should check before I start the process of shifting ?
First apply for NOC and transfer to the required Bangalore RTO (where you plan to reside in future). Insurance, PUC to have a valid status. Clear any penalties, challans, etc if any pending on the car else NOC will be rejected. Sometimes the car may have to produced physically if demanded by officials at Delhi RTO. Once you receive NOC and transfer then take it Bangalore and get it registered (you will need a address proof falling in the jurisdiction of the chosen Bangalore RTO.
Anything else which you think is important but I am unable to forecast as of now.
Application by self for NOC will be a long time so better look for a broker who can get your work done.
