Have run into a strange issue with RTO taking its own sweet time to provide the numbers for registration in Pune. It seems that the number series has changed because of Year end so it is taking more time than usual. I am peeved by the fact that the dealer should have forewarned about this. They are not selling their first car, they do a bunch every day..Whats the use? Also, what seems unusual is that apparently Pune RTO does not allow temporary registration for addresses in Pune area. Is this true ? i was told by the dealer. Can you take delivery of the vehicle that does not have number plate, only tax receipt and insurance ? Is it legal to drive at all in this manner? The dealer is (as expected) ambivalent in this matter.
