Transfer of Ownership of the Vehicle Services
When the owner of the vehicle wants to dispose of the vehicle i.e to sell the vehicle or gift to someone or change ownership after the death of the owner etc, transfer of ownership can be carried out by RTA and STA depending upon the class of vehicle. Except for contract carriage (OmniBus) and inter-state permit vehicles, transfer ownership can be done with RTA for all the other classes of vehicle.
An application has to file before RTO or STA with the consent of the buyer or receiver of the vehicle before. In case of the death of the owner, a legal heirship certificate with NOC from other legal heirs is mandatory for change of ownership.
Where the ownership of the vehicle transferred, the owner of the vehicle should intimate the registering authority (RTO/MVI) and the owner will be held responsible for any legal issue if the vehicle not transferred, change of ownership.
Why Transfer of Ownership is Important
It is very important that the seller or previous owner should transfer the ownership to the new buyer at the time of selling the vehicle because the seller or previous owner will be in trouble and legally responsible for all the offenses carried out with the car by the buyer or new owner without transfer of ownership such as traffic violations, traffic offenses, accidents if any, crime committed with the car, etc.
