    I have checked, its excellent application. But this works only if the registration is in digital form, means for newer vehicles.

    But why do some one know the details of other person? It should be accessible to cops. Don't you think it can be used for crimes. One can always note down the number and report it to cops.

    How did you check this Ravi? Did you try the text option or the weblink? I tried the weblink but did not work.

    I did know about this long back on the text option. But, that service has been discontinued now. Even when that was working, it won't show the owner's address. It will display name and registration date and its expiry.

    It has benefit to others as well, like if I am buying any 2nd hand car, you would know exactly who were the previous owners.
    Or, if you have taken a loan for your car, after paying the loan, you can confirm that car is not hypothicated to bank and its on own name.

    Yes I have checked (https://vahan.nic.in/nrservices/faces/search/publicSearchDetails.jsp) and it gives correct result, for me.

    I think it will only be useful when we are buying a used car as the weblink is asking for the last 5 digits of the chassis number as well.

    Did you anyone try the SMS option? To my knowledge, that service has been discontinued and I tried that a month back and it did not work.

    On a different note: They can integrate the vehicle registration nation-wide. Why are they not doing this for road tax? Why are we asked to pay road tax each state?
    Though law says that you can get the refund when you pay tax in another state, it is a long and tedious process, because of which you finally give up!
