Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, is one of the leading cities in the desert state of Rajasthan. The city thrives on tourism and has a large inflow of citizens from neighbouring areas who flock to the city in search of jobs and business. Also, the city holds the administrative offices, which means it’s also home to many government employees. All this ends up making the city one of the largest car markets in the region. As is the case in most places, the market for used cars in Jaipur is significantly bigger than that for the new ones.
This is largely due to the higher affordability and lower rate of depreciation of second-hand cars as compared to the new ones. While these aspects make many purchases used cars over new ones, they often find it extremely difficult to get the ownership transferred in their name. Most used car buyers even avail the services of a middleman to escape all the hassles by paying a few thousand rupees. However, it may be noted that it’s not too difficult to get the car ownership transferred yourself. One just needs to follow a few steps, which involves starting the procedure within 30 days of purchase to escape a fine of Rs 500/month, procuring a NOC in case the car is not registered in the local RTO and so on.
