How to Transfer Vehicle Ownership

Everyone has to ensure the availability of certain documents while driving in India. Just like a valid driving license and third-party insurance, one needs to have a registration certificate of the vehicle. The registration certificate provides proof of ownership for the vehicle. The certificate of registration has to be transferred in certain cases. Here are some of the circumstances which can lead to a transfer in vehicle ownership.

  • Transfer in case of purchase by another party: When a vehicle is sold, the buyer’s name has to be recorded on the certificate of registration replacing the original owner’s name.

  • Transfer after the demise of the owner: In the event of the registered owner’s demise, the legal heir has to inform the RTO within 30 days of the owner’s demise. The new owner can utilise the vehicle for three months.

  • Transfer of ownership after an auction: The transfer of vehicle ownership has to be ensured if the vehicle is auctioned off. The original owner’s name on the certificate of registration is replaced with that of the new owner.
