How to Transfer Ownership of Vehicle in Pune

Team CARS24


Pune is easily the biggest town in Maharashtra, after Mumbai. It is also among the largest used car markets in its state and as is the case in most other parts of India, the demand for used cars in Pune is larger than the new car market, which is due to the affordability of second-hand vehicles and the lower rate of depreciation they experience. No doubt, it’s a wise decision to buy a used car instead of a new model, but it’s very important to get it re-registered in the name of the new owner soon after the purchase to save both the parties from any sort of legal hassles.

It is mandated by law to submit the required documents for change of ownership to the RTO within 30 days of purchase of a vehicle. Also, if the car that has been purchased isn’t registered at the local RTO in Pune, the buyer will have to procure a NOC from the original RTO before starting the transfer process. In case the new owner doesn’t submit the documents to the new RTO with 30 days, he’ll have to pay a late fee of Rs 500 a month. Here, we have detailed the entire process of vehicle ownership transfer in a few easy steps.
