The seller has to ensure that transaction is complete.By transferring vehicle documents and take a delivery note also .Otherwise he will be taking risk .

Hello Madam,
A delivery note is a one of the most Profound option to tackle such situation but the thing is that u need to have a revenue stamp and seal to make it authentic and valuable many a times dealers will just sign the delilvery note which is having no value. There are other ameture ways of doing it like making a registered agreement in a 50 rs stamp paper recording the transfer and sale. It will be good if you can inform the RTO soon after the sale that the transaction is made with the delivery note.But if we do not have any of these proofs the sole resposibility will be with the seller until and unless u do not have a case registered with the police stating that the vehicle is missing or Stolen on or before the miused date.

it is important for the seller to take a delivery note,which is available in the rto transfer form set,specifying the date and time of delivery,duly signed by the buyer.Also payment should be taken by a cheque/ demand draft,from the buyer,which establishes the transaaction taking place,legally.Ideally the cheque should be signed by the buyer,and the signature on the cheque,and the date on the cheque should be the same as in the delivery note.This is because in this stupid country,the buyer may use the car for years without transferring in his name,and in case of any accident or other mess,the seller is in some trouble as the vehicle is in the sellers name in rto records.

Ideally the vehicle must be delivered after the transfer is done in rto records.this is the procedure followed by companies,who do not deliver the car to buyer,till the rto formalities are completed.the seller can assure the buyer that he will not use the vehicle,after getting the payment,and the buyer can note the km reading,as an assurance

sir,if buyer not transfer vehicle in his name and also fail to renewal insurance and vehicle met major accident got loss of lives to another person that time first enquiry officer come to old owner ,that time it is ur duty to search out to that person who purchased veh. from you. delivery note time date cheque payment it all not mean at critical time. for more detail you are suggested to read old book type RC, all rules prined in it. that if you sell your vehicle you must intimate to RTO, IF YOU CHANGE OTHER COLOUR /MODIFIYING YOU SHOULD INTIMATE AND MAKE AN ALTERATION IN RC, AND IF YOU SELL YOUR VEHICLE IN SCRAP ALSO YOU MUST TO TAKE PERMISSION AND SURRENDER RC TO RTO AUTHORITY. FINALY I SUGGEST TO ALL WHO WANT FUTURE PEACE OF MIND DONT SELL VEHICLE WHITHOUT TRANSFER

Hi Praveen,
If you have sold your car to an unknown person and he's not doing the name transfer even after you requested, you can give a written complaint to the police station saying that Your car is sold long back and the name transfer is not done even after multiple reminders.
Or you can warn the buyer that you are going to complaint in the police station that your car is stolen, if he's not going to do name transfer..
By these ways you can make sure the name transfer is done by the buyer and that you are not in trouble anymore by that car..

I have exchanged my Honda active 2014 model scooty in rs. 18000/- and have bought a new scooty of rs 45,000/- dealer gave me only delivery receipt and have taken all doucuments from me i.e. rc, insurance, pollution certificate etc. When I asked him give me the proof you have taken the vehicle in your possession he gave me the same challan/receipt as he give to its customer at time of selling his new vehicle. When I asked him is this enough to have a delivery note to avoid any difficulty. He assured me do not worry as soon as vehicle is sold we will give you the rc of second owner. Sir. Iam worried if it misused or something happen wrong than what shall I do. kindly guide me what can I do in this situation.
