The vehicle owner can now enter the name of the nominee at the time of registration of the vehicle or later can also do so through online application.
The application has to be submitted in Form 31 with the Registration Authority.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has notified certain changes in the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 to make the process of nominating a person in the registration certificate of the owner of a vehicle. Such a change would make it easier to register or transfer a motor vehicle in the name of the nominee in the event of the death of the motor vehicle owner.
The vehicle owner can now enter the name of the nominee at the time of registration of the vehicle or later can also do so through online application. The old process is complex and differs across countries. In the event of the nominee being mentioned under the notified rules, the vehicle owner will have to submit proof of the identity of that person. The notification stated, “In the event of death of the vehicle owner, the person who has been designated by the vehicle owner at the time of registration or who inherits the vehicle, whatever the case may be, for a period of three months from the death of the vehicle owner. The vehicle can be used in such a way that the vehicle has been transferred to it.
But for this it is necessary that the nominee has informed the registration authority of his death within 30 days of the death of the vehicle owner and has told that he will now use the vehicle himself. ” It also states that the nominee or the person acquiring ownership of the vehicle will apply in Form 31 to the Registration Authority for transfer of ownership of the vehicle within three months of the death of the vehicle owner. Also, in situations such as divorce or property sharing, the vehicle owner can make changes to the nomination with an agreed Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to make changes related to the nominee.
