No Objection Certificate (NOC) is a legal document issued by an organisation, institute, or an individual to say that they have no objection to the mentioned details in the document. It can be used for employment, trade, litigation, immigration, and many other purposes to nullify any party’s objection.
In India, a NOC may be issued by an employer, employee, landlord, tenant, or individual as a legal document. It can be used while:
This legal document can be used for or against in a court of law. No Objection Certificate usually consists of basic details of the parties involved, and it is addressed to whosoever is concerned.
Let us take an example of a person buying a registered vehicle in a different state, say in Maharashtra, to be used in a different state, say in Karnataka. In this case, the vehicle seller must get a NOC from the Maharashtra Regional Transportation Officer (RTO) and issue the same to the vehicle buyer in Karnataka. This type of NOC states that the said vehicle has no prior traffic offences against it in Maharashtra. It also states if there is hypothecation against the vehicle in Maharashtra or not. The buyer of the vehicle must show this document when re-registering the vehicle in Karnataka.
A NOC is an essential legal document with a vital bank process, immigration, vehicle and house registration, and employment scenarios. The standard NOC format can be used for all purposes. You can download a sample NOC format here.
Nowadays, the process of applying for NOC has become easier with the Parivahan portal. This portal allows online access to many facilities, information, and services offered by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. The services also include the online NOC application process for vehicles.
However, there are certain states for which online NOC application has not been enabled yet. Hence, you should confirm that online NOC is available for your state. Then, you can follow these steps:
Once you submit your application, the RTO officials will look into the status of dues or taxes associated with your vehicle.
Also, the officials will verify the ownership of the vehicle and ensure that the vehicle has not been involved in any anti-social or illegal activities. After completing the process, the RTO will provide you with the NOC approval.
This whole process may take around 3 working days if no issues surface during the verification.
What are instances where NOC is required?
Below are a few instances where a NOC is required-
Why is obtaining a NOC important?
The NOC establishes no objection by an individual, company, bank or landlord for doing/executing something. Since it can be produced in courts to prove your innocence, a NOC will help you avoid any legal troubles.
What is the validity of a NOC?
After obtaining a NOC, it is valid for only six months.
What is NOC from a bank?
When a person applies for a home loan or vehicle loan, it is necessary to obtain a NOC from the bank on the closure of the loan account. A NOC from the bank must complete the required loan closure formalities. The NOC for the home or vehicle loan is a legal document stating that the borrower has paid all the loan EMIs and settled other outstanding loan dues.
What is a NOC for a vehicle?
A NOC is a legal document issued from the regional RTO for the re-registration of a vehicle from one state to another. The NOC is an essential document that certifies that there are no dues of tax on the vehicle. However, if you are taking your vehicle for travelling in another state for less than three months, you are not required to obtain a NOC.
Why is NOC required for company registration?
When a company takes a premises/property on rent or lease and intends to use the premises/property as a registered office, the company needs to get a NOC from the landlord. The NOC is an essential document that states that the landlord has no objection to renting the premises for a company. The NOC from the landlord must be submitted to the Registrar of Companies when applying for company registration.
Is NOC required for building construction?
Yes. It is necessary to obtain a NOC from various authorities and government departments before constructing a building. High-rise apartments/buildings should have NOC from the fire department. After the building plan is reviewed and approved by the sanctioning authority for construction, the chief fire officer issues the NOC.
What is the process of receiving the road tax refund?
The regulations allow you to apply for a refund for the initial road tax paid towards the vehicle’s registration. The date to apply for a refund varies by state. However, it can be started as soon as you get your NOC and transfer to another state or union territory. Only the initial or original owner of the car is eligible for a refund. Consult the local RTO’s rules to learn more about the refund process.
