How to get NOC for Vehicle in Karnataka?

NOC(No Objection Certificate) is done to check whether there are no dues of tax on the vehicle and to confirm that the vehicle was not involved in any illegal activities. NOC needs to be obtained from the RTO where the vehicle is registered.

NOC is required in two cases.

  • Vehicle re-registration: NOC is required when you want to obtain a new registration mark in the migrated state. While transferring a vehicle from one state to another, NOC is required from the RTO where the vehicle is registered.

  • Ownership Transfer: NOC is required when you transfer the ownership of the vehicle to another person. The name of the new owner will be recorded in the certificate of registration, only after obtaining the NOC. A NOC is valid only for 6 months. So you need to get re-registration of the vehicle or transfer the ownership of a vehicle within this period.
