  • RC Book a Must for Servicing.

    Don't know if it was always like that but when I visited my service center last week there was a printout up stating the RTO/Police has made it a must for the RC book to be shown when the bike is given for service and the owner has to notify the service center if a third party is coming on their behalf.

    I highly doubt service centers follow this rule and that people who steal bikes go to the official service center .

    Topic Approved.

    Which city are you from? In Delhi, I haven't seen this 'rule' implemented yet though.

        I believe in most of the cities (if not all), it takes about 45 days for the RC. So, that is not really case specific. Even here, in the National Capital, one needs to wait atleast 45 days for the RC.

          He's from Mumbai.

          I guess it is a good thing to implement. Let us not criticize how well it works but it would help at least in a few instances and we can possibly feel secure...

          see, I sometimes scold the security guards of my apartment complex for not stopping me or my visitors... when they stop me, I feel a sense of security for living in that complex!

          Now they are going to issue RFID cards to each member who stays in the complex

              All of you who think it takes 45 days to get the RC book, you have never visited the RTO's office. It does not even take a full day to get the RC if the peoplein the RTO office are in a mood of working.
              Tell me if i guess right you all have got your bikes registered from the showroom guys itself.
              Never upgrade without getting your basics RIGHT.

                Yes, atleast I have got the bike registered from the showroom itself and didn't really bother to visit the RTO office. A little busy schedule played spoilsport in the RTO office visit!

                  If you permit i want to tell a bad/funny incident.
                  I had a CBZ* 2004 i had purchased it on a 1 year finance scheme. In 2008 when i was about to sell my bike i noticed that i had not got the hypothecation removed from the RC. I took the noc from the financer. I gave it to my RTO agent he got the hypothecation cancelled from the RC.
                  After a few days i lost my RC.
                  For the new RC i made a police report and all the fomalities were completed. I got the new RC without the Hypothecation cancelled. On enquiring i found out that the hypothecation was manually cancelled in the RTO office and computer records stated that HYP. is not cancelled.
                  Then i had to search the records of my bike myself in the office. where we found that the records of my bike were missing. Further findings indicated that an old suspended Babu has some of the records which were at last not found. I had to get the new noc and the process was completed again and the Hypothecation was cancelled i was able to sell my bike.
                  Never upgrade without getting your basics RIGHT.

                      I'm from Mumbai and yeah even I have a smart card instead of the book..makes it very easy to carry around..both my papers and my license are in smartcard form. Anyways like I said its nice to know such a requirement exists although I don't see it having any impact as such in terms of nabbing stolen bikes.

                        ^ completely agree.
                        i dont think stolen bikes get to enter service centres and the like. they would be serviced at local garages at half the price or sold in scrap value at market.
                        i see this move more as a pain for the good ones.
