I purchased a 2008 model Delhi registered car in 2017. I got NOC issued from it in RTO Delhi for RTO in Alwar(Rajasthan). However, I couldn't get it re-registered at Jaipur RTO. Agents in Delhi RTO informed me that NOC can't be canceled in any way since the car is diesel and registered in 2008. So it's blacklisted in Delhi because it has crossed 2018 though the RC says 2023. What to do now?

When you register a vehicle anywhere in the country, vehicle registration is provided for 15 years. So, your vehicle which was registered in 2008 has a lifetime till 2023. After this period, it can be renewed every 5 years based on the fitness of the vehicle.

However, in Delhi, due to the unprecedented air pollution, National Green Tribunal has banned the usage of diesel vehicles on Delhi-NCR roads which were more than 10 years old.

Delhi’s transport department has published a list of all such vehicles on its website. You can check this link to check whether your vehicle number is mentioned on the list.

De-registered diesel cars in Delhi

If it is deregistered in Delhi, there is little you can do now.
However, the Central Government has filed a case against the NGT order in the Supreme court on the premise that the vehicle has a validity of 5 more years and the government needs to pay a road tax of this 5 years back to the owner of the vehicle. The case is under sub-judice now.

As there is little clarity with respect to it in Delhi RTO, what you can do now is to reach out to RTO in Rajasthan. There are a few options that you can try.

  • Submit the existing NOC and start the vehicle re-registration process.

  • Most of the time, people forget to take NOC from home state (Delhi) when they move to a new state(Rajasthan). In that case, the registered owner is required to apply in CMV Form 28 to the parent RTO along with documents for issue of NOC. In case, no reply is received from the previous RTO even after 30 days, the registered owner shall submit a copy of applied CMV Form 28, along with the postal acknowledgment for having submitted the required forms to previous RTO, and a declaration stating that the application for “NOC has neither been rejected nor any reply received from the previous registering authority” to whom the application has been made.

  • Reach out to an agent there for help.
