This is How You Can Check Vehicle Owner Information Online
There may be times that unfortunately your vehicle gets into an accident, or is involved in an incident on the road with another vehicle. In such cases, the first thing you tend to look up is all information about the other vehicle and its owner. Another time when you may be compelled to do so is if you plan on buying a vehicle from someone unknown to you. However, you may be confused as to how to actually go about procuring this information. Instead of jumping through hoops, going to the Regional Transport Office, filling up a ton of paperwork and standing in long queues for hours, you can simply check vehicle owner name by registration number and get other vehicle information online. This process has been made easy for you courtesy of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), who have created the online portal of Parivahan Sewa to save your time and effort, along with providing you with accurate information regarding vehicles and their owners.
The Parivahan Sewa portal is an all-in-one digital portal for transportation and documentation procedures. Apart from being able to retrieve data about a vehicle and its owner, the portal also comes in handy when you need to look up your e-challan information, check the blacklist details of vehicles and also apply for and renew their vehicular documents with a few simple clicks. This portal is of vital importance when it comes to doing a thorough background check on the third party vehicle involved in the accident, or the seller from whom you wish to purchase the vehicle. You can see whether this vehicle actually belongs to the person who claims to be the owner, has any pending dues in the form of unpaid e-challans, or has been blacklisted by the authorities in any state in India.
So in order to check vehicle owner information online, all you need to have is the vehicle’s licence plate number. With it, you will be redirected to the vahan.nic.in page from the Parivahan Sewa website. Then you need to follow the instructions below:
Step 1: Click on the ‘Know Your Vehicle Details’ section.
Step 2: Enter the vehicle number.
Step 3: Enter the verification code or the captcha as mentioned on the page.
Step 4: Click on Search Vehicle.
Post that, you will have access to the vehicle’s information that is publicly available on the website. All the information available to you will be as follows:
- Registration date
- Owner’s name
- Chassis Number
- Engine Number
- Vehicle Class
- Fuel Type
- Maker and Model details
- Fitness duration
- Insurance expiration date
- Emission norms

If you do not have internet connectivity available, you can also check the vehicle owner information with an even simpler process. You can obtain this information by SMS as well. To do so, you need to send VAHAN <space> vehicle’s registration number to 7738299899, and then you will get all the information about the vehicle.
