People moving from one city to another requires their car to be registered in the city they are moving to. The transfer registration process is simple and hassle-free if you follow the right procedure. The steps involved in the interstate car registration transfer process are:

If you have availed a loan to finance your car, you will first need to contact your bank and get NOC (No Objection Certificate) from them. For this, you will need to visit the bank and submit a certain set of documents such as the address proof of the new location, reason for the transfer, etc. The bank will then verify your application of transfer and if all the documents are legitimate, they will grant you the NOC.
Step 2 – Get a NOC from the RTO where your Vehicle was Registered
After receiving the NOC from the lender, the next step will be to obtain a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from the Regional Transport Office where your car has been registered. For this, Form 27 and Form 28 need to be submitted along with the copy of the NOC obtained from the bank and the below-listed documents:

The whole process is lengthy and could take up to 6 months to get a refund.
