If you are planning to relocate to other place from another state with your vehicle, the first you need to get is the NOC of the vehicle from the Regional Transport Office (RTO) where your bike or car was registered initially. It is one of the formalities to do before relocating to. NOC allows an individual to ride his/ her vehicle in a different state and also eases the process of re- registration of the vehicle at the new RTO as well. In this article, we are going to discuss about how to apply for NOC for a vehicle from another state.

Are you thinking why NOC (No Objection Certificate) is necessary for interstate vehicle transfer?

A NOC (No Objection Certificate) serves as permission to transfer a vehicle from the current RTO to another. It certifies and acts as a proof that a vehicle has all the clearances like taxation, challans and dues from the existing RTO. In this way, a No Objection Certificate becomes necessary requirement for re- registration at a new RTO.

Let’s take an example, if a person shifts from Chandigarh to Bangalore permanently, he will need NOC from the Chandigarh RTO. Then, he can submit this NOC at the RTO Bangalore to re- register the vehicle.

The NOC will be required for the transfer of vehicle’s ownership in the following situations:

  • Sale and purchase of a vehicle
  • The demise of the vehicle’s owner
  • Selling the vehicle in an auction
