All states in India have their own RTOs or Regional Transport Offices, which enforce certain rules. These offices perform other functions related to vehicle registration, driving licenses, validating vehicle insurance, vehicular tax collections, and carrying out pollution checks. These Regional Transport Offices also have a crucial role when people sell their used cars. Without their verification, a sale is not considered to be legitimate.
A specific procedure must be strictly followed if you want to sell your used car. The most crucial part is filling and submitting certain forms needed for a successful sale. These forms are Form 29, Form 28, Form 35, and Form 30. These forms are available in all RTOs but can also be accessed online through the official website called Parivahan Sewa. In this article, we will discuss what RTO form 30 is, who should fill-up the form, and so on.
What is RTO Form 30?
- A person who wants to sell their used vehicle must fill up Form 30 after submitting Form 29 to the RTO.
- After reporting to the Regional Transport Office that the car has been sold to a purchaser, this form lets the office know that the ownership transfer should be done urgently.
- The form states that all the upcoming legal requirements related to the vehicle must be transferred to the new purchaser.
- The seller should submit Form 30 to the RTO within two weeks of selling their vehicle. The seller requires two copies of this form to complete the sale.
Who should fill up the form?
Once a seller applies for ownership transfer of their car to the relevant RTO, it is necessary to report to the concerned RTO. This is to perform necessary formalities pertaining to the change of ownership urgently.
Thus, we can safely mention that this form is the confirmation of Form 29. This RTO form ensures that the new buyer is responsible for all legal liabilities regarding the four-wheeler. Also, Form 30 demonstrates that the seller has handed over documents, such as a Certificate of Insurance and Registration, to the new owner.
How many sections are there in RTO Form 30?
There are four distinct sections in the form. The following lines explain the significance of each section is:
- The first part has information about the transfer of the vehicle.
- The second part of Form 30 has all the details about the transferee.
- The third part of this form is a nod from the concerned Financier about the ownership transfer of the used vehicle.
- The last or the fourth section contains an official endorsement.
What are the documents that should be attached?

What key factors to consider when filling up RTO Form 30?
