Ownership of registered number plate can’t be transferred.
This means you can’t sell your car with attached number plate registered under your name. Nor can you stick the number plate of current transport to the new vehicle you buy.
If you want to separate the number plate with its registered vehicle, you must present required documents to the police for their clearance. Then, submit the application to in-charge authorities who belong to the State of your last registration.
However, this can only be applied to mainstream car plates, owners of out of series or fancy number plates are recommended to apply for a fresh fancy plate. Affixing an unregistered out of series or a fancy number plate to a random vehicle is against the traffic laws and regulations.
