RTO now issues smart card registration certificates. Once a vehicle is purchased by customer, the authorized dealer takes the vehicle for registration to RTO. Number plates are issued in 24 hours by RTO & inspections done within couple of day. Once both are done, the dealer can handover the vehicle to the customer who can drive it. The smart card RC takes another 3 days but customers can still drive the vehicle immediately once number plates are issued. Gudi Padwa, Akshay Tritya, Dussehra & Diwali see huge rise in vehicle registration. Dealer can issue temporary registration number which is valid for 7 days only under certain conditions which allows customer to take vehicle home immediately however he will then have to get permanent registration done on his own.
