Transferring the ownership of your 2-wheeler these days isn’t as hard as you think

So you’ve decided to sell your old two wheeler. Used to be that the process of transferring ownership to the new owner was beset with bureaucracy and multiple visits to the local RTO. Now-a-days though, with the government’s thorough initiative of moving most of its services online, this process has become a lot easier. That said, navigating government websites is nothing short of a task. But worry not, coz we’ve got a quick reckoner for you on how to do just that. Just one caveat though. We’re not being extremely comprehensive in describing this process, so you will have to use a bit of your own judgement when on said government website. And the process might differ slightly from state to state.

1. Go to the Parivahan website

Here, choose “Online Services” in the top bar and then in the dropdown menu that appears, choose “Vehicle Related Services”. 

2. Select your state

On the page that appears after completing the last step, choose your state. Now it’s important to understand that some states will allow you to complete the entire transfer of ownership process online, while others might still need you to visit your local RTO to complete the process.

3. Enter vehicle registration number

On your state website, enter your bike’s registration number and click on ‘proceed’. In the page that opens, you have to choose the option that says “Transfer of Ownership”. Depending on your state website, it might either be nested under the online services menu, or might just be visible up front.

4. Enter chassis number

In the form that follows, you’ll be asked to enter the last 5 digits of your bike’s chassis number, along with your phone number. Upon clicking ‘Generate OTP’, you’ll receive an OTP on your mobile, which you then must enter on the website. However, if your mobile number hasn’t been attached to your bike’s registration, that’s something you’ll need to do first using the Parivahan website.

5. Select applications

After you’ve entered your OTP and entered the site, click on “Show details”. You’ll be shown a list of applications, and you’ll need to select the appropriate ones. You’ll need to enter the details of the person buying your bike as well as some of your details. You might even need to upload some documents. Once that’s been done, you’ll be asked to make the payment. 

6. Make payment

You’ll have the option to pay the ownership transfer fees by making an online payment using your credit/debit card, net banking or UPI. Once you’ve made the payment, you can download and print the receipt. 

7. Further process 

After you’ve completed the online process, you may still need to go to your local RTO to complete the full formalities along with the receipt of the payment, depending, of course, on your state’s rules. 

That said, what we’ve mentioned above isn’t the exact process which will be applicable in every state. These are more or less general guidelines on how to go about the online process. You’ll still need to check with your local RTO website for exact details.
