What is a No Objection Certificate (NOC)

Planning to shift to a different state and take your vehicle with you? If yes, you must know about the paperwork needed to transfer your vehicle from state to state.


If you are moving to a state or union territory for less than 90 days, you don’t have to apply for an address change or vehicle re-registration. However, if you move for a duration longer than this, you will need to obtain a NOC or No Objection Certificate for your vehicle from a local RTO near you. This document is necessary to register your vehicle in a new State. The purpose of a NOC is to certify that there are no pending taxes or dues on your vehicle.

When is NOC Required for a Vehicle

According to the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, NOC for a vehicle is required during the following circumstances.


  • During the transfer of ownership of the vehicle


The transfer of ownership of a vehicle happens under three possible scenarios. The sale or purchase of the vehicle could be due to the demise of the original owner or auctioning for other reasons. Under all these given circumstances, the new owner must obtain a NOC from the original RTO where the vehicle was registered, in order to legitimize the resale or transfer of ownership of the vehicle.


  • During vehicle re-registration in a different State or Union Territory


A vehicle needs to be re-registered when you (the vehicle’s owner) move permanently from one state or union territory to another. In this case, you can procure a NOC from the RTO where you had registered your vehicle. However, as mentioned, if you are moving to another state for less than 3 months, you do not need to get a NOC.

How to Apply for NOC Online

The Ministry of Road Transport has enabled the online application of NOC through the Parivahan website. However, the process has not been enabled for all the states. Before applying for NOC online, you should check whether online NOC for your State is available on Parivahan.
