Customer Making Deal With Car Dealer.

Selling a car can be a lengthy process.

Even though finding a potential buyer has become easier (thank you internet!), there is still the process of transferring your car’s ownership to the new buyer.

Simply put, car ownership transfer is the process by which the ownership of your four-wheeler is shifted to another individual (buyer in this case). This procedure replaces your name from the registration certificate of your vehicle, with the buyer.

Below we have summarized the entire process, to help you understand it better.

Take a look!

Transfer of car ownership is only necessary in the following cases:

  • Normal sale.
  • Death of the owner.
  • Purchase of vehicle in a public auction.

Further, this transfer can be either within the state where you reside or interstate.

But whatever the reason, there are a few stipulated documents that need to be submitted to your local RTO to complete the transfer of car ownership.
