Need for the Document[edit]

In India it is compulsory that all motorized road vehicles should be registered. Vehicle registration is done so that a clear ownership of the vehicle is established. The registration of vehicle is done by the local RTO of that state. In India, a registered commercial vehicle of one state is not allowed to enter another state without a permit. To obtain the permit a significant amount of money is paid. In case of a passenger vehicle, the registered vehicles of one state are allowed to pass through other states but the vehicle can only stay in thr other state for 30 days.

Vehicles which are registered by the RTO are tagged with a license number or registration number. The license number is issued by the district level RTO of each respective state. If you want to know more about the plate you can learn your vehicle registration details. When a person purchases a vehicle the dealer of vehicle issues a temporary license sticker. This temporary registration number is valid for one month and within this time period the owner of vehicle must register the vehicle at his local RTO. But what if a person needs to cancel his / her vehicles registration?
