The process of RC transfer is the same as transfer of ownership of a vehicle. The RC transfer is mandatory once a used car is bought from the original owner and most RTOs, including those in Ahmedabad, require the transfer process to be initiated within 30 days of buying a second-hand car. The RC transfer is necessary to ensure that all the legal liabilities are transferred to the new owner of the car. In case one fails to apply for RC transfer within 30 days of date of purchase, they will have to pay a fine of Rs 500 per month for the delay in the initiation of ownership transfer procedure.
