Yes, it should release the same at the time of issuing the NOC. Anyway, the process is quite lengthy.  You need to claim the same through an agent - else the matter will not move.  Besides, you need some friend/relative to follow-up with the agent/RTO locally.  The tax, when refunded, would be on pro-rata basis.

Thanks Pankaj,

 

what a country we live in. democracy with thugs as MPs and certain policement as pimps. we will need agents for evrything in this country. Only way we can beat this by creating a data bank in Carwale on people who are moving one state to another to examine and swap their cars. I have offerd my car for a swap with some one who is to move to delhi but have a car registered in bangalore/karnataka. is any one listening? If so pl write to me at hariharkumar@rediffmail.com

 

thanks Pankaj again

Dear adiya and Sidharth,

 

My information based on RTO office is as under.

 

You are required to apply for registration in Bangalore with NOC received by you from original office of registration.

2. RTO will calculate tax (Life time-15yrs-number of years the car is old) @12% cost of car at which purchased. they expect original invoice pl.

I have a suggestion: Let us keep writing and requesting for those relocating to Delhi/UP etc for possible swap afer necessary mutual discussions. Hope people will respond..

 

We may also generate public opinion to the effect that karnataka RTo should seek transfer of lifetime tax to Karnataka once the vehicle is reregistered. Interstate book adjustments are possible. If we are one nation this is small service the govts should do. In any case they send all details to RTo delhi (in my case,- in every case to parent RTO), then they can easily collect the amount paid there instead of asking citizens to pay second time.

Request more responses pl.

Dear Satyajit,

 

You would need to pay about 12% of the invoice value of your car towards lifetime tax for reregistration in Bangalore. you would need to apply for an NOC from RTO chennai. (Where your car was registered.). Pl enquire if they will release the lifetime taxes paid by you while releasing the NOC. Chances are they may ask you to apply on obtaining the NOC. not sure. pl enquire. In the vent you get your life time tax back, the damage on you will be reasonable. (Chennai lifetime tax may be 10% i guess).

 

In case they get sticky to release the lifetime tax paid by you, then it is bad scene from losses point of view. In which case selling is another option.

 

third option is swap with someone gettingback to chennai from bangalore. Little difficult and may be little messy depending on individuals.

 

Best wishes

 

harihar kumar.

Really interesting idea! Are you looking forward to someone who owns a car in Bangalore and moving to Delhi? Probability is not very high, but still best of luck.

A better idea could be to sell the Santro in Delhi and buy a used car in Bangalore.

Swaping in this context would mean selling/transferring your car & in return purchasing/transferring another car - all this, even if feasible, would be quite time consuming & would tantamount to lengthy formalities.  Like Banwari has suggested, it would be better to sell-off your car & buy another car (new/2nd hand) at the place of your relocation

Dear Gaurav,

 

My suggestions after under going first hand experience on your situation is as under.

I had moved to Bangalore after obtaining an NOc from RTO. to bangalore. I am trying to sell the car here. a difficult proposition since the brokers always discourage buyers telling that it could be a stolen car or a car with  unknown history.

Other aspects.:

1. To convert into karnataka regtn' you need to pay road tax on the invoice value of your car- about 9 years rebate. (2008-1999). at 10%. (if your car was 3 lacs, youcould end up paying Rs.15000.00 approximately. Delhi RTO will not return any paid to them)

2. It is sheer economics. transportation costs, advertisement costs, running around prospectivebuyers etc inBangalore is best avoided by selling in Delhi itself-- in case you have the time.

 

Any doubts pl do call/write here. 09243415999

 

good luck

Hi Harihar,

What i understand is if one is staying less then 1 year, no registeration is required.Only road tax for an year is to be paid.I really support this strongly, one nation cant the govt provide this small facility.

Sidharth,

This is not feasible until the road-tax department is centralized. In terms of road-transport, each state acts like a nation in itself. As of now, state governments are given power to impose tax on their own. This is the reason, one state charges 2500 rupees flat for a luxury car while other charges over 15% for the same car!

Sodharth,

 

i admit. states have their powers, but they can be teasonable enough to return proprtationate amount when ome one leaves for another state for personal/professional reasons. For ex delhi has no rule for return of the Tax in the event you leave delhi with your car after you have paid tax. so in a life time of a car one moves to 10 states then he pays more than the cost of car as road tax!!.

Then why call this one country. states can start entry fees to individuals A-la-visa and get rich

 

sincerely

harihar

This is very Bad Scenario for all of us. We keeps moving one state to another due to our Job Availability.
We all are keep growing our territory to different state but still we have to pay different state Taxes multiple time as and when we moved to that State.
Where is our INDIA GROWING tag ? Why still we are following the same old Tax structure ?
And in Karnataka we pay for Max Tax for the Worst Condition Road...

Dear friends,

 

We need to examine if some one could start writing to the letters to the editor and generate public opinion and decision makers focus. There was a lead india effort. One gentleman was also chosen. Perhaps he could help. Organisations like CII, chambers of commerce etc can also help start the movement. Could we expect some good samaritans to make a beginning. Letter to chief mininster can also be sent. If professionals could join the effort then politicians will pay heed-- now that elections are due!!!

But whole will bell the cat ? It is a pure money making strategy for GOVT and RTO... But many people are surviving too. May be all TN vehicle. They goes to TN Border from Bangalore(Just 30 KM) and renew a new Toll Receipt on the NH.
Job is done for another 3 months... But what happen to the other state people and other scenario. Like KA registratin running in Chennai ??? KL Reg running in Bangalore ...
GOVT should really think on this issue...
And again we are also spliting our States; So end of the day our boundary is shrinking.
