In case you moved to a new permanent address, you also have to update the address on most of your official documents, including the registration certificate for your car. The Motor Vehicle Act of 1988 enables you to apply for the recording of a change in the registered owner’s residential address on the motor vehicle registration certificate. You can easily do this by requesting the recording of the change in residence within 14 days of the address change via an online application. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you change your address on your vehicle’s RC online:
