Deciding on a car with a big budget is not an easy task. There are tons of options to choose from and each one of them appears better than the last.

Hi, Is there any way where a dealer can cancel RTO registration which is still pending at RTO level? I have bought a car in Vadodara, Gujarat state where RTO registration has been rejected due to pending Municipal Corporation Tax. I have some disputes with dealer and I want them to cancel RTO registration but they are denying that it cannot be cancelled. Is it true if RTO registration is denied from RTO office then also we cannot cancel it's registration?
Thank you for trusting in our services & writing to us.
