I got the car as expected on 6th of April as expected. Drove it from A'bad to Dombivli. ( no one bothered at Maharashtra checkpost.) LBT is exempt for Defence personnel- had a letter from the Serving unit supplementing the fact. Entry Tax is also the same for Defence personnel. Although to get the entry tax NOC was bit troublesome. Finally got the same on 16th April without paying a SINGLE rupee in the Sales Tax Office, Kalyan. The only problem i faced was with the RTO. the agent i hired started demanding extra money. so i got back all the documents from him and went ahead with the procedure myself. ( I did pay him a little for the work he had done- form fees etc.) The RTO inspection officer expected me to back down and bribe him to get the work done ( individuals face this trouble most often). i didn't budge a bit. 3days after filling the form and paying form fees i finally got all the signatures and stamps done. I made the payment on 17th april in SBI as per the new GRAS system which came into effect of late. This payment didn't reflect in RTO account till 27th. The cashier who gives receipt of payment came with up late payment charges, which i promptly denied to pay, since I had made the payment 10days back. I got the below mentioned email printout duly signed by the Dy. RTO and handed it over to the cashier. I am now waiting for my Registration Number to arrive which will be communicated through SMS. ( The GRAS system involves Dealers to have a TAX ID with RTO and pay accordingly. Since i am an individual i didn't have a Tax ID and hence the payment did not reflect. This bug in GRAS had been noted down by the Maharashtra RTO and all local RTOs had been informed- An email w.r.t this had been given to me by the I.T. dept. in RTO Kalyan.) Final Status- got everything done legally without paying bribe and now just waiting for Number to arrive. --- Double Post Merged, Apr 29, 2015 --- @ghodlur i will definitely do the same in an ownership thread soon.
