How to Transfer Ownership of Vehicle in Gurgaon

Team CARS24


Gurgaon is one of the biggest car markets in the north of the country and this holds true for both new and second-hand segments. In fact, as is the case in most other parts of the country, the market of used cars in Gurgaon is bigger than the new one, which is mostly because of the higher affordability of used vehicles and the high rate of depreciation of the new ones. While it’s a pretty wise decision to pick up a used car over a new model, one of the most important steps is to get it re-registered in the new owner’s name. Transfer of ownership is required to save both the seller and the buyer from any legal hassle that might crop up at a later stage.
