For the transfer of vehicle registration from one state to another, you have to start with getting the vehicle deregistered from the original state of registration. For this, you’ll have to go through the following procedure –
Once you have gone through the above steps, you can safely drive to the new state of residence without fearing any sort of penalty. In case you have sold your car to someone residing in another state, even he can follow the above procedure and drive freely to his home state. Once the NOC for vehicle transfer to other states is obtained, you need to submit its original copy to the original RTO for police verification. Once you get the NOC after verification, you can get the car registered in the new state. It may be noted here that obtaining the NOC can take up to five weeks, while the documentation process in the new state might take up to six months.

In case you have already moved to the new state without completing the necessary paperwork, there is a different process that needs to be followed –
1) NOC taken but not transferred
In case you have obtained the NOC but couldn’t transfer your vehicle to the new state, you have to go to the RTO and get your NOC cancelled. This can be done by paying a few to the RTO for the cancellation of the NOC.
2) Road tax not submitted
In case you have obtained the NOC from the earlier RTO and have been using the vehicle in the new state without paying the road tax to the new RTO, you’ll need to submit a Non-migration certificate along with a penalty.

3) Selling your vehicle in the new state
If you want to sell your vehicle that is registered in a different state, you would need to submit the NOC to the new state RTO along with the road tax receipt. If anyone of the above is missing, you can’t sell your vehicle in the new state. After submitting these, the process is pretty much like selling a normal car and all documents required to sell a car are also the same.
The road tax charges vary according to vehicle cost. The cost that is taken into account is the ex-showroom price of the vehicle. Here is a list of road tax for some states and the additional costs that might incur.
|Andhra Pradesh||<10L- 12%
|+2% RTO tax if you are buying the second vehicle in AP|
|Municipal corporation parking charges may apply
|Regional charges may apply as per the village/ town.|
|Punjab||6% for all vehicles||6% for all vehicles||–|
|Uttar Pradesh||<10L- 8L||<10L- 8L||
Additional charges may apply
In case you plan to sell a car that is registered in a different state, there are good chances that you would receive a lower price for it as the buyer would not want to get into all the RTO-related hassle. Hence, you might end up selling your car at a loss. Of course, one way to circumvent this is to get all the RTO-related work done yourself and obtain a local registration before selling off your vehicle. Another method is to go back to the original state to sell the car. In both the scenarios, there will be a lot of inconveniences involved.
