It is very important to complete the process of bike registration for a new bike by using the portals of RTO (Regional Transport Office) and Vahan.
If you want to adhere to the Motor Vehicle Act, you would have to register your two-wheeler with the RTO. The body regulates such vehicles all over the country. This is why you can visit the RTO that is closest to your location and register your vehicle after you have bought it. Here they would inspect your vehicle, verify it, and allot a registration number to the same.
Following are some of the steps that you need to follow in this regard:
Following are some of the forms that are necessary for your new bike registration and are available on the VAHAN website:
|20||application for registering a new bike|
|21||certificate of sale|
|24||registration of the motor vehicle|
|29||notice of transfer of ownership of the vehicle|
|51||insurance certificate for two-wheelers only|
|54||report of information for accidents|
In India, you have two kinds of registration numbers for vehicles including new bike registration. These two types are permanent and temporary. You get the temporary number before you get the permanent one. The temporary numbers usually have a validity of a month. However, once you get the permanent number from the RTO it means that your ownership of the two-wheeler is firmly established. This also indicates that the bike has been identified based on its chassis and engine numbers.
