One of my friend obtained NOC from Chennai for his car when he was transferred back to Kerala around 5 years back.
However he doesnt register the car in Kerala state till now. Should he be worried?
Do he need to register in Kerala again?
Anyone here faced a similar situation?

Ask him to get it done if planning a long stay else ignore. Till then use alibi it’s already under the process.

its already 5 years now with the NOC and he might sell his vehicle may be another 2 to 3 years..

This is my understanding and also as per the rule.

Technically, neither the NOC nor the registration of the car is valid now. In other words, the car is run without registration. Forget about selling, running a car without registration is legal(? put right word) offence.

When you take NOC, your registration in the state gets cancelled. You should always register asap in the new city to avoid any penalties in future. And you can’t use this NOC in another city as the NOC issuing RTO mentions the city you intend to move to.

The existing NOC will still work if you intend to re-register, but then you will be asked to pay penalty from the NOC issued period.

I don’t exactly remember it, but mostly it is 1% of the road tax per month or year, again I’m not very sure. Better approach any agent to understand the process involved. The officers at RTO may say one need a valid NOC, but this is due to their unawareness/ignorance of the rules.

agents are always risky as they charge exhorbitant rates…

I usually approach agents when I’m not clear of the process or charges involved, and then ditch them. I keep it clear when talking to them asking what are official charges and what are their charges, if they are fudging the information

But before even going to them, I walk into RTO and seek all the required information. Helpdesk or Babus at RTO are helpful in my case.
