To add to the horrors of vehicle ownership/registration transfer process, The Excise and Taxation Department of Punjab has banned transfer of automobile registration from one city to other. All the concerning branches across Punjab have been notified.
As per the Motor Vehicle Act; automobile is transferable property and citizens could register it in the nearest motor registration authority.
