Recommended Posts

Graciaas!! So, you got the shiny new car which is eager to hit the road! But wait, what about the permanent registration? You can always rely upon your dealer to this favour, of course against some money, but you can save few hundred to thousand bucks if can do it yourself. In this write up I would like to share my experience of car registration in Kondapur , Hyderabad.

So, first thing first, what are the papers/documents required?

  1. Form 20 (In Duplicate if you have Finance and signed by the Finance company/bank)
  2. Form 21 provided by the dealer
  3. Form 22 provided by the vehicle Manufacturer
  4. Photocopy of a valid Insurance Certificate
  5. Tax invoice from the dealer
  6. Temporary Registration Certificate
  7. Life Tax Receipt
  8. Photo ID Proof (Govt provided)
  9. Address Proof (Ration Card, Electricity Bill, Passport, BSNL Telephone Bill...)
  10. Aadhar Card
  11. PAN Card.
  12.  

Just in front of the first counter.. as on 18.08.2015

 

How do I prepare myself, how to deal with RTO officers?

Well, RTO officers are very friendly here in Kondapur. You just need to be well informed and all the documents should be perfect. Some people around there are really helpful (personally we got help from a stranger!), so don't worry, just do the below things before you head to RTO for permanent registration of your brand new car.

  • Verify if you have all the copies of the documents mentioned above.
  • Carry a pen, small pencil & eraser. You need to sign on form 20 at 2-3 places (IIRC) and do a pencil trace.(eraser is , in case if you could not do the pencil trace properly.)
  • Refer your owner's manual or ask the dealer where the Chassis number is punched or engraved properly on the body. Usually there is a plate provided which has the chassis number. But some car is provided VIN no. or chassis number in more than one place. Find out which one can do the pencil trace. You need to do that on Form 20(IIRC) wherever RTO officer asked to do so. Please practice couple of times on a A4 paper so that you can do the same smartly over there without wasting your valuable time! check yourself whether you can comfortably reach this place and take pencil trace of the number Remember, chassis number should be visible properly on the required papers.
  • It’s always better to reach early to get familiar with the environment. 10.30 AM is the opening time, be there around 10 AM. You might even find some friendly agent who will verify the document order without a fee.

 

Anything else? Valuable tips or something?

Of course.. I am outta here! No worries. Just do take care of the following things while you made up you mind that you will DIY registration of your brand new car!

  • Some people like me done full mat floor cover as soon as they get their new car. Its really good and helpful thing unless you know the chassis number is engraved below the full mat cover! Well, just check up where exactly the chassis number is engraved for pencil trace. Make sure you haven't covered the area with the full mat until the registration. In my case, I had done my full mat just a week after I got the car. I checked up for chassis number and found that chassis number is on the door panel of Grand i10 which is easy to do the pencil trace. But wait..kahani mein twist hai. the moment we started doing pencil trace to get the chassis number, we realised that it's not that much engraved. In Hyundai Grand i10 chassis number is properly engraved in the chassis itself, just pull the drive's seat to extreme back, you will find below to that the chassis number properly engraved for pencil trace and guess what.. I insisted to fix (semi-fix actually) the mat to the chassis (by adhesive) in order to avoid misplacing the mat while driving (which is good otherwise IMO). Hence, we had to cut the mat for that place & repair it again to get those precious letters & numbers!! Thankfully the guy dint charges a single penny for the cutting & repairing. I heard, some cars like Maruti have their chassis number engraved under the bonnet. Owner of those cars will not have tough time in this regard. I have seen in Honda Jazz, in the right side of the driver's seat, but again, if you cover it up, be prepared to cut it! So this type of car owners be careful.

 

I Dint notice that, floor mat is covering the chassis number

  • Take 3-4 copies of Form 20 from the dealer (or take photocopies) and get it endorsed from the finance banker. Extra copies will ensure keeping documents for every agency including you.
  • Arrange all the set of documents in line with the RTO guideline at home, so that you will not block the queue at the RTO for setting up the docs.
  • Better do not go on Fridays & Mondays to avoid rush

 

Hmm.. reached early at RTO office. Whats next?

After entering the RTO park your car in the designated place and come to the registration counter with papers/documents. It's on the right side after you entering the RTO office. You will find some Xerox shops etc. which are behind this counter. As you have already made your set of documents at home in the order specified in the list, just give it at the New Registration Counter.

 

The clerk verifies the documents; he will guide you to put sign on 3-4 places on Form 20 or/& any other doc if required and ask you to put sign on a digital signature pad. He will issues a fee receipt after collecting the prescribed fee of Rs 635/- (Application Fee - Rs 200, Service Charge - Rs 200, Smart Card Fee - Rs 200, Postal Charges - Rs 35) and another 620/- or so for HSRP charges (High Security Registration Plate). Make sure only owner signs on the digital pad. After that you need to go the next counter in left side to join another queue for photographs, finger print & eye scan (This photo will appear on the RC). Then you need to go the vendor shop for HSRP (extreme left point if you stand before the counter), where you need to show the receipt of Rs 1235/-(approx)

 

That vendor will give you the time & date when you need to come there again to fix the HSRP(After getting the Reg number), but before going there make sure to call him @ 9963908679, (please do cross verify the number again),

 

Then you have to take the pencil trace of the Chassis number. If you have finance, then there will be two copies of Form 20, you have to take pencil trace on both the copies.(On the bottom edge of the first page of Form 20 IIRC, otherwise ask the inspector seating there). You bring all documents, receipts along with your car to the vehicle inspector who sits in the open small shed, beside a tree near the receipt counter. He will ask you or his chela to read out the chassis number while he verifies on the Form 20. Gives you a copy of the receipt and voila you have done with the registration process!!

 

The entire process took us only 40-45 minutes (max an hour) and it is not at all difficult. The RC smart card will come to the address as mentioned in the RC by post.(You can get it by hand next day by giving 300/- to anybody from those Xerox shops behind the receipt counter; but I would suggest to take it through post) Your Registration number will be updated on the RTA website by the same day evening. You can search using your Temporary Registration Number.

 

After a couple of days you visit RTO office again to fix the number plate (make a call before going), you need to show your HSRP receipt or tell your number, they will take out the number plates & ask you to put sign on their register (proof of received I guess) . 

 

They may ask you to give tips of 100/- to 200/-. Now it's up to you whether you will pay or not!! However, they had done the job perfectly.

 

So, Finally our "white knight" is getting the number plate!!

That's it.. Congratulations! Your car finally got the permanent number plate!!

PS: The process mentioned here is as on 18.08.2015 ; Kindly visit RTO for any update in this regard.

 yeah they ripped off all the seats to fix the full mat.:P

No man I wish it happened.:no:. But as of now you will get the "number" on the same day in the RTO website, but that vendor takes his time to make & fix the "number plate", which is couple of days/weeks after. You need to get in touch with them to make it at earliest .

Beautiful post.:)

But I have one question, I think showroom guys quote the on road price including registration fee and other charges right?

Thank you So much!!!

Well in our case they had quoted excluding the charges you mentioned, and we dint receive any quotation from any dealer after these charges. Even recently I took a TD & quote for jazz(for my friend), they also dint mention these charges.

IMO, if it is mentioned in the quotation, then simply asked him to remove that part. We asked to remove Ex Warranty & handling charges, they removed it without any question.

Picture of ripping the seats off looks scary.

How much does it cost to do the floor carpet?

:D Yes it looks scary but no worries, its very simple thing what I saw. And I had done full mat for the cabin as well as for the boot. All put together I had to shell out 1200 bucks IIRC, though they asked me for 2000/-;);)

Thank you Pralay for the detailed post. Is this still valid now?

I went to Knodapur RTA today and faced issues and could not do the registration. I am going tomorrow again. Hopefully this will work tomorrow.

Not sure about present rule. Try your luck. Go with most of the IDs possible (Aadhar etc.), there are lot of photocopy's shop available. btw, which car/bike you bought?

Thanks for the information brother.

 

I'd like to share my experience at Kondapur RTO on 30th Dec, 2017:

 

I need to go for registration for my new Baleno and I thought of taking help from some broker initially but after reading your post, I wanted  to give it a try myself.

So I prepared myself going there with all necessary documents. I arranged all my documents which I got from my dealer in the below order properly.

 

1)Form 20

2)Form 21

2)Form 22

4)Invoice Copy

5)Life Tax Receipt

6)Temporary Registration Certificate

7)Insurance Copy

8)Address Proof (I put my Aadhar copy)

9)Pan Card

10)Ex Showroom Pricelist

 

I went to the Kondapur RTA at around 11 AM and I went to Counter 2 to submit these documents, but I came to know that I needed to book a slot online for registration. There are few xerox shops behind the RTO office. I made a online slot booking with the help of one such shop and he charged ₹30 for that and gave me a printout of slot booking confirmation which contains the application number and the fee that we need to fee. I already paid the registration fees to the dealer and hence my due amount is 0 printed. If there is any due amount then we need to pay that.

 

With that online slot booking printout paper and with the documents I stood before Counter #2. Very less crowd. The guy standing before the counter took my documents and checked it whether I provided all necessary docs and whether they are in proper order. After verifying he handed over those docs to the officer who sat inside the Counter #2 and he told me to wait and he would call my name when the process done at Counter #2.

 

In around 10 to 15 mins, he called my name and gave me a small receipt along with its carbon copy and asked me to take the xerox of it and handover to him along with temporary registration copy. I did the same. He took the xeroxes and gave my documents set back and asked me to go to Counter #1 for photo and signature. I went to Counter #1 and took the photo and given my signature. Now I was told to go to break inspector who sat in the shelter just before the office. 

 

I went to him and he asked me to get the chasis number pencil sketched on the front page bottom of Form 20. This was bit difficult task for me. I tried 3, 4 times after erasing the previous sketch with the eraser which I carried, finally I succeeded. I took the pencil sketch from the chasis number which is printed at the left corner edge of engine cabin. I went to the officer along with my docs and submitted him, now he asked me to bring the car and read the chasis number. I did the same and he told me that I could go then and I'd receive the message and registration book would come to my postal address.

 

I wanted to reserve a number which are available on current day. For that I took a DD of 1000 from some nearest xerox shop (we need to pay Rs.100 extra) and filled RRMA application and went to counter #2 along with the copies of invoice, temporary registration certificate and aadhar copy. The guy who stood before the counter, checked my documents told me to write other 2 numbers on the application form along with my phone number. so that if required number is not available then they will give any one from other two. If all 3 chosen numbers are not available then they will call us so that we need to again tell them numbers after choosing from available current day numbers. So better to have a copy of registration numbers with you. After writing other 2 numbers of my choice on the application, they have been submitted at Counter #2. 

 

I left for home then and next day I received a message saying that my HSRP is ready for affixation and please visit the nearest center from 2PM to 5PM.  I still need to get my number plate affixed as I didn't go there, planning to go this weekend. 

 

I thought of sharing my experience and it may help some people like me who want to get the registration done on their own without taking any brokers' help. I provided information as far as I remember and please excuse If I miss anything. :-)

 

Thanks

Fantastic guide Ganesh.
Now, You gave some confidence.
Personally, I never thought of registering the vehicle on my own. 

 

Can I know how much you saved in this procedure?

Thanks Ranger.

 

When I asked a broker about this he told me that he would charge 4k for registering (1k) and for current day number reservation (3k). I got it both done at 1k (for current day number reservation). So I saved 3k by spending a little time.  :-)

Thanks mate for putting the updated registration procedure here. This will surely help people who want to save a little :)

By the way congratulations for your new Baleno! So when are we getting detail buying experience, user review & some stunning shots of the killer car?

 

Few tips for the new car:-

1) No need to do anti-rust coating or any sort of coating unless comes for free, new car comes with all sort of coating & treatments

2) No teflon coating is required on a new car. In fact, in Hyderabad I doubt anyone does teflon, everyone does waxing & they call it a generic name teflon. 

3) If you are planning to wash the car for yourself, then follow two-buckets method. Dip the cloth in 1st bucket (clean water/shampoo) -> clean the car-> wash the cloth in 2nd bucket-> dip it again in the 1st bucket (clean water/shampoo)-> wash the car. Repeat. It will surely save your car from swirl marks

4) Break-in the engine. Though people say modern engine does not require so. But mate, at the end of the day its your car. There's no harm if you dont push the engine for initial 1000 km. By this way, you can set your hand with the new car as well. 

 

If further help is required do let me know.

 

Cheers!

Firstly, Congratulations on your new Baleno @Ganesh. Thanks much for sharing your insight on the whole procedure so much in detail. I am very much sure, that this would help anyone who is going for his vehicle registration by self. Saving 3k for the price is quite a big number for what it takes. Cheers for that bro.

 

@Pralay You never disappoint any in providing such beautiful and useful tips with our fellows. I am very sure that most of the new car buyers get looted at the showrooms for these extras which are outrightly not necessary. Thanks much for bringing ahead the awareness for the members who aren't aware of this. Cheers bro! :D

Thanks @sagar :). In fact, another thing i recently noticed that, in Hyderabad, few dealers again started collecting "handling charges" despite that is illegal. But customer gets emotional when s/he buys a car, so these dealers just take that opportunity to loot the customers in the name of whatever!!

 

Not sure if @Ganesh had paid "handling charges" or not!

@Ganesh Thank you for your post. I bought a new Baleno zeta a month back and planning for PR on 27th at Kondapur.

Now i'm thinking to do it myself instead of contacting an agent.

 

Only thing which bothers me is address proof. I'm from Vizag and a Bachelor (meaning no address proofs in Hyderabad). But i can provide my bank statement as address proof.

Should we get this notarized or how would they accept the address proof?

Bank statement is good enough with agent. 

Without agent, I'm not sure they will accept. If you live around Kondapur RTO, you can ask around the shops near Kondapur RTO.
They may help you getting the notary.


Is it a private or govt. bank?

 

Would suggest you to update your Aadhar address based on bank statement(Can be done online)

Once it is updated, you can use it for registration.

There's very little chance to make it through with pvt. bank statement. Still if you insist, then I would suggest to get it signed from the bank. instead of just a pdf print.

And, I would also suggest you to visit RTO once to know what are the docs accepted by them as "Address proof". There's a list of docs which is accepted by them, anything out of syllabus they may not act positively :D 

 

Whatever it is, Pl update here!

 

Cheers!

@Ravikalyan Congratulations. :-)

As per their rules, they accept only copies of govt. issued docs as address proofs. But sorry that I am not sure whether that address should match our current residence address or not. I provided my Aadhar copy and it has my current residence address. It'd be better If you can go to RTA office and inquire. They are friendly and they can provide you the right information. All the best.

Thanks all, this is useful.  

 

I had been to this RTO today to get my car registered. I was at the office at 10:30 AM and was done by 11:30 AM.    Following steps took some time within this hour long process.    

  1. Keeping the papers in order as mentioned in their paper.    
  2. They need a photo copy of your ID and address proof. I did not carry these because the document given by dealer did not mention this.  
  3. The pencil mark of chassis number on Form-20 is tricky one.  I managed to get some digits printed, not all;  but the inspector did not seem to care for this.   

additional tips :

  1. I had been to this office on last Saturday, there was a long line; I would recommend to avoid Saturday.  Today (Tuesday) there was not much crowd.  
  2. Please book the appointment online. The clerk will ask for the application number from this appointment.

Sharing a discussion on how out of state cars are handled in Hyderabad

 

 

 Raju :

 

Hi friends,
My MH12 (Pune) registered Polo got caught today RTA inspector inspected on the way to office near Lanco Hills.
He has taken the Vehicle RC and have asked me to pay the road tax within 15 days and then to get the RC from him.


Now I wanted to know how much would the road tax I would need to pay.

When browsed in net, it says for vehicles more than 2 years and less than 3 years, 10.5% of vehicle cost to be paid.
Now what does the Vehicle cost here refers to?

 

 Also do I need to pay lifetime road tax only or any short term tax option is available.. as I may move on from Hyderabad probably by end of next year


Chanikya Singam 

Hi, your vehicle percentage depends on which year your car is manufactured.

Mostly for a recent car. It is around 9% to 8%  older one will be little less.

Example, A friend of mine has a car of WB he ended up paying 80000 fine in RTA.

Then his vehicle got released. Tell me where you given any receipt.


 Raju :

I was given a notice of asking me to pay it within 15 days.. mine is 2015 registered vehicle.. It is mentioned in net as 10.5% of cost of vehicle. Does the cost here means the actual on road cost?
Got my vehicle on last year July to Hyderabad
 Prabhakar Rao AVR

Any proof of travel to pune after that?
 Baran Raju

No I didn't make any travel after that


Nishanth Reddy

 As per law you should pay though it's unfair.. Can't help it.
 "Drive without borders.. Waseem memon"
Google this and you will find all the info about your situation.
Satyam Saligram :

I heard MORTH (Ministry of Road Transport & Highways) is contemplating to get Lifetime tax under GST to ensure one vehicle one tax at least for white board vehicles
It’s better to take it to Nanded and get it back at least once every 5-6 months instead of paying that 75-80k

 

Prabhakar Rao AVR :

Can you prove that you moved in July? 
Do you have any permanent residence or parents in MH? 
Please don't mind me asking too many questions. 
I'm trying to avoid the tax if you are legally entitled for exemption.
MV act says it's 11 months. So you can get the exemption if you travel back to Pune before that & leave it there for some time.
 

Saichand 

1) More than six years vehicles can't get registered in Telangana due to BS norms. If possible negotiate with the RTO officer on that and get back your RC
2) Present car value will be mentioned on the insurance document
3) RTO officer can't just take your RC unless he has a proof that can is in Telangana for more than 11 months, try to create some bills from some courier service that you got car shipped recently

 No.. we don't have any permanent or relations. Had been in Pune for work only.
So one question.

 If I make a visit to Pune this weekend and come back by Sunday..

Will the toll plaza receipt would be enough for getting exempted?

The process is still the same.  I visited  RTO at Kondapur, Hyderabad  around 12 or 3/Jul/18.

Certainly, no agent required.

 

Hope this web-page started by Pralay and  comments from all different users  continue to help others.

Well in our case they had quoted excluding the charges you mentioned, and we dint receive any quotation from any dealer after these charges. Even recently I took a TD & quote for jazz(for my friend), they also dint mention these charges.

IMO, if it is mentioned in the quotation, then simply asked him to remove that part. We asked to remove Ex Warranty & handling charges, they removed it without any question.

Hey,

This was really informative

 

Just one quick question. In your Temporary registration certificate, what was the RTA written under "Vehicle to be registered at:" Mine says RTA Rangareddy TS-007.

 

Does that mean I can register my vehicle at RTO Kondapur. My address in the sale document is Kondapur.

Hello,

 

Thank you for this informative post. I was able to do the registration of my new vehicle today without any agent thanks to this post.

 

1. I submitted the documents on counter 2 and got a receipt.

 

2. Signed, picture and thumb impressions on counter 3 after presenting the receipt

 

3. Proceeded to the police officer who asked for chasis impression at 2 places on form 20.

 

Please carey originals of pan card and other id and address proofs. For adhaar card I simply said that it is downloaded from uidai.

 

Image of documents attached.

 

They also state that please provide the online slot booking information print. But a photo of that also sufficed.

 

Overall took slightly less than an hour.
