There are 3 mains reason why a person wants to change car ownership. In this article we are going to explain you how each of them works in India and also going to help you with the documents needed in each.
Reasons to Change Ownership
Purchased by someone else – Here the name of the buyer has to be added in the registration certificate (RC). This has to also be done to remove the name of the previous owner.
In case of death of owner – This is when the death of the owner has taken place and within 30 days the legal heir can get his name registered. This also has a clause where the legal heir can use the maximum period of 3 months.
During an Auction – This is where the new owner will replace the old owner in the RC. It is quite similar to what is done in the first one but the documents are different.
Transfer of Ownership
The Form 29 has to be submitted to take the ownership of the vehicle before the purchase. This has the details of the transferor and transferee. The form has to be sumbited to the RTO in the area where the owner lives. If it is then the same state then Form 30 has to be submitted within 14 days. The transfer for different sates needs form 1 and form 2 along with form 30 with in 45 days.
There is also a transfer fee under Rule 81 of Central Motor Vehicle Rules 1989.
