The Transport department has proposed a new draft which allows owners to transfer registration numbers from old to new vehicles. According to ET Auto, the old registered numbers can be transferred either to new four or two-wheelers.

The transfer of registration numbers is yet to be approved. On approval, owners will be able to apply online for the registration transfer, alongwith a processing fee. The proposed amount stands at Rs 500 for two-wheelers and Rs 5000 for cars. The amounts are yet to be finalised and are awaiting cabinet approval.

After the online application, a slip is generated with the old number being registered. The old number can be then taken to a dealer who on entering it into his system will provide the same number onto the new vehicle. The Motor Licensing Officer (MLO) will then provide a new number for the old vehicle.

Currently the transport department are said to be receiving upto seven applications for the transfer of registration numbers. This is mainly due to lack of awareness. Once the proposal is implemented the number of applications is expected to increase. Four categories of VIP numbers have been finalised, one of which allows owners to select a number of their choice.
