Every city and state in India has numerous Regional Transport Offices, or RTOs, which address the local problems that the population faces. The RTO is utilized for everything. Including the sale of second-hand cars and collecting vehicle taxes and environmental inspections. And if you violate any road laws, then as a penalty, an e-challan must be paid. As we already know, to legally sell a used car, both the seller and the buyer must follow specific steps.
These procedures typically entail completing forms and sending specific papers to the respective RTO. The necessary paperwork for selling an automobile can be obtained at the RTO or online at the mParivahan website.
