How to get a N.O.C for transferring your vehicle to other state?

If you are planning to move to a new place in a different state in India and are planning to take your vehicle along, you would need a No Objection Certificate (N.O.C) from your RTO jurisdiction. Before going any further let me clarify that, you do not need to take N.O.C for transferring your vehicle to a different place within the same state.

The process for obtaining N.O.C. for transferring your vehicle is a cumbersome one as it involves getting various approvals from different agencies. I recently had to shift from Hyderabad (residing at Madhapur) to Gurgaon and wanted to take my bike along with me there. For the benefit of ‘Mango People’, I have listed down the steps that you need follow to get your N.O.C within a week.

Pre – requisite: Things you will need to get N.O.C
  1. Original RC
  2. ID proof
  3.  Local address proof
  4. Xerox copies of Insurance, Pollution clearance certificate

Procedure to be followed:
  • Obtain traffic clearance certificate: In order to obtain a traffic clearance certificate, you need to write an application to the DCP, traffic police Hyderabad for issue of N.O.C from a traffic perspective. In the application you have to write the name of the place you are shifting to and also mention the details of your vehicle (i.e. most of the details mentioned in the RC). Along with this application attach your ID proof and Xerox of RC. Go to the traffic control room at Lakdikapul (Near West side signal) and submit your application at counter no.2. The person there will take your application, verify if you have any challans pending. If there are no challans pending he will issue a traffic clearance certificate. You do not need to pay anything here and the N.O.C will be issued free of cost. The process will take about 30 minutes.
  • Obtain a police clearance certificate: In order to obtain a police clearance certificate, you need to write an application to the DCP, central crime station, Cyberabad for issue of N.O.C from a police perspective. Along with this application attach your ID proof, Address Proof and Xerox of RC. Now take your application and submit it to the nearest Meeseva centre. Your application would be submitted online at the Meeseva centre and you would be given an acknowledgement receipt. Here you need to pay a total of 135 rupees as the charges for issue of N.O.C. You can track the status of your application online at the Meeseva online portal. Once your application is approved, you can collect your police clearance certificate from the Meeseva centre where you submitted your application. The official timeline for issuing the police clearance certificate is 7 days. However, I got my certificate within 3 days.
  • Apply for N.O.C. at R.T.O:   Fill up Form 28 in triplicate and attach 1 rupee revenue stamps on each of the forms. Take a pencil print of the chassis number on each of the three forms. Along with Form 28 in triplicate attach your ID proof, Traffic clearance certificate, Police clearance certificate, Xerox of RC, Insurance and Pollution clearance. Go to R.T.O at Attapur in Mehdipatnam and get your documents verified by the administrative officer. After this go to counter no. 4 and submit your application. Here you will have to pay a total of 85 rupees as charges. You need to carry your original RC as this has to be submitted along with your application. The applications are accepted between 11-1 pm and the N.O.C will be issued on the same day between 4-5 pm.
P.S. I followed the above procedure and got my N.O.C. within 5 days without paying any bribes. Have a little patience and All the best!
