RC transfer: How to transfer Bike ownership in India?

Transferring ownership of a two-wheeler in India involves several steps to ensure a smooth process. First, gather all necessary documents including the original RC, Form 29 and 30 (duly filled and signed), valid insurance certificate, Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificate, and address proof. With these in hand, visit the nearest Regional Transport Office (RTO) or Additional Regional Transport Office (ARTO) in India. Submit the documents along with the filled application form for ownership transfer and pay the applicable fees, covering transfer charges and any pending road tax. It's essential that both the buyer and seller are present at the RTO for verification and signature verification. Once all documents are verified and approved, the RTO will issue a new RC in the buyer's name, officially completing the transfer of ownership process for the two-wheeler in India.
