Suppose you have borne road taxes at the time of registering a car in one state. However, after a few years, if you need to move to a different state, you would have to comply with the road tax laws of that state as well.
Therefore, be ready to pay taxes on the same car once again, when re-registering the vehicle.
However, the transfer process is not that simple. Other formalities are also involved with this procedure.
For example, before you can clear road taxes in your new state of residence, you would first need to cancel the vehicle’s existing registration in the other state. Also, you must acquire a no-objection certificate regarding registration transfer from the concerned RTO.
Owners would need to submit this NOC, along with the road taxes, to the new state’s RTO before he/she can avail the new registration number for their car or bike.
An important point to remember here is that deregistration and payment of road tax for the second time is only necessary when owners are permanently shifting from one state to another.
If you are simply visiting another state for a few days, you would not need to bear such taxes again.
