New regulations will soon apply to the used car business.

According to a draught set of regulations released by the Union road ministry on Thursday, used car sellers must obtain an authorization certificate from the relevant state transport authority and transfer ownership of the vehicles to their names in order to operate.

According to the ministry, the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989 revisions aim to increase transparency and provide a thorough regulatory environment for the used car business. The sale of the vehicle will be carried out in accordance with the new regulations through a dealer; the previous owner and the new purchaser will not be connected in any way. The new owner's information in the state transport office must be updated by the dealer.

The draught rules define the steps involved in transferring ownership of the car from the registered owner to the dealer and spell out the dealer's authority and duties. The new regulations will provide dealers with the authority to request the renewal of registration, fitness, duplication, and no-objection certifications for ownership transfers. Dealers will also be required to keep an electronic vehicle travel log with information on the trips made, including the destination, driver, time, and mileage.
