You can claim a road tax refund on a vehicle when the old registration has been cancelled or after it has been registered in the new state.
Additionally, you can apply for a road tax refund in the old state where a vehicle was registered.
However, there is no method for road tax refund online. Hence you need to submit documents to the RTO in person.
It should be noted that there is a time limit against the refund application. This time frame depends on state policies.
For instance, you can claim the refund within six months from the transfer of a vehicle or with a NOC.
Making an application after the time frame will be futile. The RTO can decline the application and obstruct the road tax refund procedure.
Hence, it is vital to abide by the rules and keep the necessary documents handy.
