I am a engineer working with a MNC in the IT Industry, currently staying in Bangalore. After staying here for 1 year I felt the need of my bike which I had bought in my engineering days. So I brought my bike to Bangalore from Nagpur. Now the problem is, i cannot ride a bike having Maharashtra registration, in Karnataka without a No Objection Certificate (NOC). So I searched all over the internet and asked some friends and finally found out how to get it done.
Here is what it needs to get a NOC (its really simple, if you are ready to spend some money):
1. The NOC has to be taken from Maharashtra govt. in my case Nagpur RTO office.
2. Take 3 copies of print of form 28. (I did from http://www.mahatranscom.in/trans_noobjection.aspx)
3. On the first page of each copy take a pencil imprint of your bike's chassis number on the left corner(or else can be done on white paper and pasted on the first page of form-28).
4. Take photo-copy of your bike's Insurance (obviously the one which is not lapsed).
5. The original copy of the RC book is also needed and it has to submitted along with the form.
6. Give all the above mentioned documents to a RTO agent and he will do it in 5 days time (depends, may be even less).
7. The money you need to spend following this procedure is a bit more (I spent 1k), but if you have the time, it can be done without the intermediate agent also.
With agent - Rs 800 to 1200. (depends how well you can convince him)
Without agent - Not less than 300. (some money has to be given to local police)
The only problem is, I had to go to Nagpur for getting my NOC done, but by having all the above documents someone else can also do it provided the owner signs the required pages of form-28.
That's it, now the roads are tension free, and the cops cannot create a problem...
