It has become very easy to buy a used car in the major metro cities in India especially Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai etc. There are plenty of websites and dealers, both authorized and non-authorized who sell used cars as per people’s preferences and requirements. However, an important aspect of buying a car, whether it is used or new is that of registration. While for new cars, the registration is done by the company itself, getting the registration done for used cars is a little different.
Registration by Authorized Dealers
In case of showrooms and authorized dealers such as Maruti True Value, Mahindra First Choice etc selling used cars, they help with the registration. In some of these cases, the car is registered in the name of the dealers and hence, it is easier to get the registration done. They may also charge a nominal fee to help with the registration.
Registration in case of Online Purchase
Since a lot of websites are selling used cars, used car registration Bangalore is also provided by them. They may charge a small fee and help with the registration formalities and documentation upload etc. In this case, however, people would need to go to the registration office or Regional Transport Office to get the registration done in their names.
Registration in case of Direct Purchase
In case someone makes the purchase directly from the previous owner, all the formalities and documentation is needed to be done by the buyer. The previous owners are unable to help except for providing all the necessary documents and signatures as required. The process in this case involved visiting the Regional Transport Office (RTO) and getting the ownership documents transferred to their name..
In each of these cases, it is very important to note that one needs to be careful of the documents submitted as well as the final documents that are made in their name. This is to avoid any complication once the transaction is complete.
