But can I drive this bike in Mumbai without registration (MH number plate).
I hv a 2007 model Maruti Dezir car registered in New Delhi and it was purchased in the name of my company. Now i hv shifted to Mumbai and planning to stay here for more than 5 year so do i have to get the registration done again in Mumbai and what is the process to get it done. What taxes and other charges i hv to pay again in Mumbai for this process.
You have to pay road tax and Octroi. In addition to that you have to get the car registered in Mumbai (for stay for more than a year).
You will need an NOC from Delhi RTO for this. Not too sure if you need to get the name change done on the RC book, but if you are no longer associated with the firm then it makes sense to get the name change (it will happen only @ delhi)
Costs will depend upon the age of the car. Octroi cost is 4.5% of the book value.
Thanks for update.
I m associate with the same company and working from Home since we do not have any registred office location as of now.
Can u update me what all formalities and documents are required to get this car registered in Mumbai in the name of same company.
If you are still with the same org, then only one step is less. i.e transfer of ownership from company to you. Rest all procedures needs to be followed.
Where in Mumbai are you? If your RTO is Andheri RTO, I can help you.
Appreciate your help.
I stay in Kandivali.
Hello everybody - I need some specific help. I'm shifting my base location from Kolkata to Mumbai during Feb 2012. I have bought a used 2008 Honda City car at Kolkata from a friend of mine, and would be shifting the car also to Mumbai. I'm buying the car at a cost of Rs. 3.20 lacs at Kolkata. I am getting the NOC done from Kolkata RTO. I need your help. How much would be my approx cost of road tax in Maharastra (Mumbai) which I have to pay. Since the transportation is paid by my company, would I still have to pay Octroi in Mumbai ? The car will be delivered to my doorstep in Mumbai by the packers & movers company directly. Need your kind assistance.
I have sent you a PM.
Note that if you get a car form another state, you will have to pay octroi @ Navi Mumbai/Thane toll naka if you get in via a P&M. You can choose to drive it in and pay octroi later.
Octroi cost is 4.5% of book value. Besides this you have to pay road tax and registration charges in Mumbai.
Thanks for your response. But I have 2 basic queries / clarifications to seek :-
(a) the cost of buying a 2nd hand car in Mumbai is far higher than that at Kolkata.
(b) moreover, the total kms usage in Mumbai for a 3 years old car is much high when compared to Kolkata.
I'm going to stay at Mumbai for a max of 2-3 years for my transferable job. If I get a good deal at Kolkata, and thereafter pay road tax for Maharastra, do I have to still register my car in Mumbai ? I think the RTO & police should be happy if I'm paying the Road Tax at Mumbai and then can drive around the car freely.
I've seen many DL number cars in Mumbai. They do not register their cars in Maharastra as they are on transferable jobs. They get the NOC from their own state & pay the road tax, and then keep on driving the car.
What is your suggestion please ?
You can drive in the city for 10 days, without paying anything (pls keep toll receipts as proof of arrival).
If you plan to stay for a year, then paying road tax and octroi is enough. Registration not required.
If you plan to stay for more than a year, in addition to paying octroi and road tax, you have to register the car in mumbai.
This is what the rule book says. Rest is upto you.
I've a weird sort of a problem. I will be buying a car in Kerala in September 2012. It is a wedding gift and hence I have to buy in Trivandrum. I currently live in Mumbai with friends and I will be moving into a rented place from september onwards. I am planning to drive the car from Trivandrum to Mumbai and then will be using it in Mumbai. I don't have a address proof in Mumbai. Will I be able to drive a car with a temp. registration from Trivandrum to Mumbai? Will it be possible to simply drive down and then register the car in Mumbai, or will I have to pay tax, get NOC from Trivandrum and then again pay tax in Mumbai. Kindly help me
u can do a temp regn in Trivandrum and then a perm in Mumbai.
Also u can buy it in mumbai and drive down to Trivandrum for the function.
its up to u to choose which option is more feasible and suitable by discussing with ur family.
ur rent receipt/ rental agreement/ letter from ur employer can be used as a proof of address.
Thanks for the quick reply! I've another doubt. While calculating the tax and the octroi, will they use the cost from the invoice or will they get the cost of car from a mumbai dealer. Am asking this because, the car price is around 30k more in mumbai ex-showroom
The price of the car is on the Invoice however there would be good number of taxes in Mumbai to fill the price gap
For registration, you can drive down to Mumbai with temporary registration but ensure that the same is informed well in advance to Kerala dealer so that the dealer does the temporary registration accordingly. And for address proof, if you are not able to get rent/lease agreement, you can still get your car registered by producing an affidavit from any notary authority. Contact local RTO agent and he should be able to help you for sure.
BTW, Congrats for your marriage and new car
One personal advise would be to talk to your family and buy the car in Mumbai itself, unless you are planning to take the car back to Kerala in near future.
I am planning to bring and drive a car from outside (Orissa to be specific) to Mumbai for less than 1 year. I learned from the above posts that I DO NOT have to register my car here, but I will need to pay octroi/road tax and I can drive my car with Orissa number plate upto a year. I am also clear about the respective costs: 8% and 4.5% respectively. All the car documents like registration, insurance, PUC, fitness certificate will continue to be from Orissa.
1) Is this correct?
2) For just paying the octroi/road tax, can you please provide a complete list of all documents that I need? I am specifically asking for a list because a driving school told me I needed a passport/voter id/LIC policy as address proof. Like any other person who has stayed for a short time, I do not have any of these documents. I have lease letter, Airtel telephone bill etc as address proofs.
3) How long does this process of paying taxes take, and how long before I can start driving my car around?
4) Do I need any NOC for this (point 2)? It is my relative's car.
5) If my stay gets extended beyond 1 year, I will need to register here. What all documents will be required for that?
Please help me with the above queries, as I want to be able to get my car here as soon as possible.
If u can prove to the cops that u are a tourist and visiting the city for less than 3 months, then they cannot penalise u or force u to register or pay tax when they stop u.
u dont need the NOC to pay one yr road tax. but it ll be needed if u want to transfer the car to ur name, re register in a different state.
ur latest telephone bill & lease letter shall be sufficient. if the RTO asks for Affidavit for Lease letter then get it done.
there wont be problem if u drive immediately. paying taxes may take a few hours.
for stay more than 11 months u need to re register in Mumbai with MH regn. and pay lifetime tax. u can get it refunded from Odisha RTO.
Thank you for your prompt reply Chinmaya.
I actually plan to stay for more than 3 months anyway, so I should probably pay the tax, to be clear of the law . So, you say that no documents/NOC are required for paying the taxes?
So, any documents will be required only when I am trying to re-register the car? (if I stay beyond 11 months) - in which case I anyway have a lot of time to get some document made, plus to get the NOC from Orissa RTO.
Also a follow-up to the previous question: Can anyone give me the info/contact of some agent/driving school that can help me pay the taxes, or with the registration? I am guessing that personally going to the RTO will involve some hassles, am I right?
personally going with all the documents and showing it to concerned officer is the best option. u ll get first hand information on procedure , fees, time etc.
Yes, you are right, thanks again for all the info...
Thanks for the wonderful information sharing. I have a Sep 2010 registered Haryana vehicle. I have already got the NOC for same and have brought it to Mumbai. Its a Hyundai i10.
I went to an agent for knowing how to change registration. He told me the charges will be as follows:
Car Invoice Value:
Price of Car: 417,285
Total Invoice Value of Car: Rs 472,054
Depreciation applicable for car more than one year old but less than 2 years old: 97.2% (I thought this is crazy high, anyone can validate this?)
Road Tax + Octroi: 11.5% (7%+4.5%)
Broker Agency fees: Rs 5500
Total Amount: 472054*97.2%*11.5%+5500 = ~58,300 Rs
I am psyched that I need to pay so much.
- Can someone validate the 97.2% number?
- Also, is the broker agency fees reasonable?
Also, many have advised me that it would be much cheaper to just pay off 100-200 Rs whenever someone catches. I am confused. Any opinions. I might be in Mumbai for 4-5 years.
The calculation and/or the price mentioned is correct. However on agents fees, I guess its always negotiable and you can bargain with agent to reduce it for you.
The depriciation in terms of %age is visible only after car is some 2.5 to 3 yrs old, hence a 97% should be correct figure.
On paying 100 or 200, thats possible only till they take away your RC and/or driving license. Once they take away the RC and all, you need to pay road tax and then get the RC back. Its a bigger pain and its better to pay the road tax.
Gone through the thread and have a futher query which I cannot find any answers to
My car is 2004 and AP registration and recently shifted to Mumbai. I would like to pay the road tax and registration as necessary for the car .
Previously I was informed that Cars which do not comply to Bharat II are not registered anymore ( in Pune atleast) which means my car could not be registered in Pune. Is this applicable in Mumbai as well?
( ie - I end up paying road tax & octroi but the car is not registered and retains the AP registration?)
take the documents to the concerned RTO and get ur queries clarified in detail. But as per my knowledge the Bharat stage rule applies to some 30 major cities.

How much will be the octroi and road tax i will have to pay in Mumbai?? Will the road tax i already paid be refunded to me??

Hi pls anyone tell whether i had to take NOC from kerala for a kerala registered vehicle to be shifted to mumbai??
wat will be the other expenses??
if anyone can provide the agent number in mumbai... wull be great help..
@ madhuswam You will have to take the NOC from Mumbai again as there is no record of your vehicle in Delhi so they can't give any NOC
You may be able to drive it in Kolkatta for sometime (6 months i guess) but then you'll have to re-register
@MidhunVM You'll have to take the NOC from the RTO which has the latest record of your vehicle. If it is in Kerala, take it from there.
