    Is RC a must in long drives ?

    Hi Folks,

    I am planning for a trip next week (out of state) in my new T Jet. One thing that is worrying me a bit is that my RC is not available as yet. :( Will it create any sort of problem in the long drive ? Should I carry any substitute document ?

    I would like to hear suggestions from the knowledgable people in this forum :-D.

    Which state are you travelling into?

    Technically, if you have the proper invoice and the insurance papers that should do. But, policemen at the border are unpredictable and you may land in some trouble. Recently, I was caught at the Goa-Karnataka border and the policemen asked RC, Insurance and the PUC documents. I did not have the PUC and then tried to extract as much money as possible. Make sure that you have all sorts of documents.

    You would have received a receipt from RTO that will work as RC till original RC is received

  5. I had a bad experience at Hyderabad. I had all car's documents in photocopy. But still the policeman asked for original RC, and reasoning that you have to keep it in hand always and that too original.. especially out of state. (I don'tbuy that) Anyway that was just a reason to loot.. so had to flick a 100 rupee note.

    I travelled 5 states at different point in time : Rajasthan, UP, Haryana, Maharashtra,Goa and Karnataka

    Maharashtra and Karnataka police are more vigilant for outside state vehicles, likewise UP and Haryana.
    But UP and Haryana police are most corrupt of all states (personal opinion) and they don't let go of an opportunity to fleece monies if you are not carrying all docs in original !!

    i have travelled to TN border from Mysore, they do check your vehicle for alcohol !!

    if you are traveling with kids or elders it will serve as a boon in most circumstances.

    best of luck for your travel and drive safe !

    You must have all the papers [at least attested photocopies] in the car at all the times. It doesn't matter whether its long distance journey or short.

    If the car is registered with RTO they should be able to give an extract within a day even if the RC (smart card) is not ready.
    Once I lost my original RC and took an extract from RTO which was as good as RC and even worked for a insurance claim settlement.
