16 Section 51(5) – Issue of Fresh R.C. in the name of the Financier in case of Repossessed Vehicles (Contd..) Issues Frustrating delays in issuance of fresh R.C. in the name of financier due to: no time limit prescribed for such issuance RTAs send several notices to the defaulting registered owner despite the provision of only one such notice The registered owner (defaulter) files his objection raising some disputes with the financiers which are outside the scope of The Motor Vehicles Act the registered owner (defaulter) files objections saying the matter is sub-judice in a court of law even when the financier submits original R.C. alongwith the application the RTA follows the usual process 27th November 2009Min. of Road Tpt. & Highways16
