NOC is the acronym for ‘No Objection Certificate’. It is issued by institutions or organizations in India to specify that they do not object to the covenants of an application or document. When you travel from one state to another for more than 1 year with your bike, you are required to obtain a NOC from your state RTO.
They keep the record of individual drivers and vehicles following details like excise duty payment, pollution control standards, emission standards, etc. It helps RTOs to oversee and enforce conformity to the provisions in the law.
How does RTO work?
RTO is a regional transport office of India that offers assurance that all the individuals being a citizen of India is adhering to the standards and provisions as stipulated in the Motor Vehicles Act 1988. Whenever purchase a two-wheeler; you are mandated to register with the RTO.
Now, in case, you move to another city or state, which has a different RTO, you need to obtain a NOC that allows you to deregister with your original RTO and re-register with the RTO of your new location.
If your RTO status doesn’t change, it is considered as obstructing enforcement of the law. In that scenario, an individual is liable to pay fines, cancellation of driving license, etc. It is because such new RTO will not possess your and your vehicle's details in their records which will not allow them to ensure you are in adherence to the law.
