  1. The  owner of a motor vehicle when applying for the assignment of a new registration mark under sub- section (1) of section 47 or where the transfer of a motor vehicle is to be  effected in  a State  other than the State of its registration, the transferor  of such vehicle when reporting the transfer under sub- section (1)  of section 50 shall make an application in such form and in such  manner as  may be prescribed by the Central Government to the registering authority  by which  the vehicle  was registered  for  the issue of  a certificate  (hereafter in this section referred to as the no objection   certificate),  to  the  effect  that  the  registering authority has  no objection  for assigning  a new registration mark to the vehicle  or, as  the case  may be, for entering the particulars of the transfer of ownership in the certificate of registration.
  2. The registering authority shall, on receipt of an application under sub-section  (1), issue  a  receipt  in  such  form  as  may  be prescribed by the Central Government.
  3. On  receipt of  an application  under  sub-section  (1),  the registering authority may, after making such inquiry and requiring the applicant to  comply with  such directions  as it deems fit and within thirty days  of the  receipt thereof, by order in writing, communicate to the  applicant that  it has  granted or  refused to  grant  the  no objection certificate:

Provided that  a registering  authority shall not refuse to grant the no  objection certificate  unless it  has recorded  in writing the reasons for  doing so  and a copy of the same has been communicated to the applicant.

  1. Where  within a  period of  thirty days  referred to  in sub- section (3), the registering authority does not refuse to grant the no objection certificate  or does  not communicate  the  refusal  to  the applicant, the  registering authority  shall be deemed to have granted the no objection certificate.
  2. Before  granting  or  refusing  to  grant  the  no  objection certificate, the  registering  authority  shall  obtain  a  report  in writing from the police that no  case relating to the theft of the motor vehicle concerned has been reported  or is  pending, verify  whether all  the amounts due to Government including  road tax  in respect  of that motor vehicle have been paid  and  take  into  account  such  other  factors  as  may  be prescribed by the Central Government.
