In a state as large as Maharashtra, clearly a single Regional Transport Office cannot address the needs of the residents. Therefore, there are 50 offices under Maharashtra RTO. While the residents can visit these offices to avail the many services they offer, they also have the option of using the Maharashtra RTO website which is more convenient and largely paperless. Furthermore, the department has a 24x7, dedicated toll-free number 1800 120 8040 for the assistance of citizens.


The most commonly, Maharashtra RTO, availed services include state and national transport permits, various driving licences based on the type of vehicle, temporary and permanent registration of the automobile, payment of state road taxes, etc.

Vehicle Registration at RTO Maharashtra

According to the legislation, you must do the Maharashtra vehicle registration in order to drive/ride on the state’s road. You may go to the Maharashtra RTO website https://transport.maharashtra.gov.in/1035/Home or visit the Maharashtra RTO office available in your city to complete the Maharashtra RTO registration of your vehicle.

Here is the list of documents required for the Maharashtra RTO vehicle registration


  • Form 20

  • Form 21

  • Form 22A, or the vehicle's manufacturer's roadworthiness certificate

  • If the car is purchased on loan, the financer must provide Form 28 or a No Objection Certificate (NOC).

  • Purchase invoice

  • In the event of an imported car, a Customs Bill is required.

  • If the vehicle is purchased for commercial use, complete TCR and TCA forms.

  • PAN card or Form 60

  • Vehicle insurance certificate

  • Resident proof

Like Maharashtra vehicle registration, the government has also mandated riders to have motor insurance. According to the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, the Indian government has made it obligatory to purchase at least third-party car insurance for everybody who owns or operates a vehicle in India. If the traffic officials find any person violating the law, he/she will be punished in the form of a hefty fine. The officials are also allowed to take legal action against the person if necessary. The premiums for third party insurance are generally lower, but one should go for a comprehensive insurance plan, as they provide a wider coverage for the extra cost. To ensure a smooth experience and save time, acquire automobile insurance through the Bajaj Markets platform. Bajaj Markets does not provide insurance; nonetheless, some organizations on the platform provide automobile insurance online via the portal. You can purchase from any of them.
