Gather the required documents
First things first, you have to get the car’s commercial status cancelled before you can apply for the private permit. The customer must write an application to the RTO mentioning the reason for switching with the mentioned documents – a copy of the original RC, RTO Form ACC (Application for surrender for permit and clearance certificate), insurance, ID, and address proof. Additionally, if the car was purchased on loan, you need to get a NOC from the bank.
Apply for re-registration as a private vehicle
Once the commercial vehicle permit is cancelled, you can apply for re-registration as a private vehicle. For this you need to pay the road tax amount and submit documents such as ID, address proof and PAN card, NOC, permit cancellation document, Form 20 for registration. Upon successful processing of your application, you will receive the new registration certificate reflecting the vehicle’s private registration status. The process can also be completed on the government’s Vahan portal.
Remember to retain copies of all submitted documents for your records. By following these steps and providing the necessary documentation, you can easily convert your used commercial car to private registration.
