buyers of motor homes finally have the name ‘Motor Home’ appearing in the
vehicle registration copies (RC)? Yes, very soon. Today if one were to buy a
Tempo Traveller and ask DC Designs to modify it and make it prettier than your
bedroom, in the RC it would still be called a Tempo Traveller and a commercial
vehicle. It would not get the tag ‘Motor Home’.
that a validation norm from ARAI has been finalised for motor homes, there is a
distinct possibility that on your RC you will be getting the vehicle registered
as a ‘Motor Home’. Rajesh Poddar, Director-Business Development, Paracoat Products
Ltd is excited about the prospects. Till recently his company was only into
making motor homes on the Mahindra Genio platform. Now a separate company has
been formed that would use this vehicle for tourism purposes.
on the new development on classification of Motor Homes for the purpose of
registration, Poddar said, “As of now there is no such classification of a
motor home in an RC. One thing is that a norm has been created. We are going to
iCAT soon and we shall be giving one vehicle for validation. Thereafter I am
expecting that we will have one vehicle which will be validated by iCAT and
which can be registered as a motor home. As per the norm once I get it
validated, I have a certificate with me.
Then I have to go to different RTOs with that certificate, and ask them
to register my vehicle. That again is a big exercise for me. I have to go
separately to every different RTO situated in different states. Each state will
do its own scrutiny and then issue a certificate. We shall go only to those
states which are chosen by us for tourism purposes”.
