Even though the economy has taken a hit due to the pandemic, the registration of fresh vehicles on the occasion of Dussehra saw a significant rise in the city and across Maharashtra compared to last year’s numbers.

In the city of Mumbai, vehicle purchases have witnessed an increase which has led to vehicle registrations at Tardeo, Andheri and Wadala RTOs in Mumbai experiencing an increase as compared to last year. Only in Borivali, RTO vehicle registration decreased, as per reports.

Moreover, a total of 599 vehicles have been registered in the RTO, however, two-wheelers have been given more preference. On October 8 last year, on the occasion of Dussehra, 298 vehicles were registered at Tardeo, Wadala, Andheri and Borivali RTOs in Mumbai. This change has led experts to believe that the rise in the registrations is a consequence of non-availability of local trains in the wake of the lockdown due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Details regarding vehicle registration have been noted down below:

  • Wadala RTO has registered 170 vehicles this year. It has 127 two-wheelers and 53 four-wheelers. Last year, 38 two-wheelers and four four-wheelers were registered.
  • Andheri RTO has registered 150 two-wheelers and 91 four-wheelers. In 2019, 111 two-wheelers and 81 four-wheelers were procured.
  • Tardeo RTO is also not far behind. Compared to last year, 160 two-wheelers and four-wheelers have been registered this year, however, it is understood that there are 106 two-wheelers in it. In 2019, only 41 vehicles were registered.
  • Meanwhile, vehicle registration at Borivali RTO has declined.
  • In 2019, 194 vehicles were registered on the occasion of Dussehra, however, this year it has come down to 28.
  • There are only 21 two-wheelers and 7 four-wheelers.
