Every time a buyer purchases a new vehicle, the dealer issues a TR sticker. TR refers to ‘To Register’. It is a temporary number which is valid only for a period of one month. Within this period, the owner must visit the district’s RTO to officially register the vehicle and get a standard license plate. The motor vehicle inspector at the RTO office is responsible for the verification. During this period when your motor vehicle is yet to be registered, you cannot drive your vehicle on the road. It may be subjected to hefty fines.The process of registration includes verification of the vehicle purchased, your address etc. Before the registration is complete, the RTO inspector also checks the details such as the engine and chassis numbers. It is a must to carry all the important documents like PUC, driving license, sales invoice, etc. while getting the vehicle registered. In the case of commercial vehicles, documents such as a roadworthiness certificate and transportation permit are also required.
