Having a car has become common these days due to the availability of cars across multiple price ranges. You can get cars at almost all price ranges, and the manufacturers are developing and launching new models all the time. And while owning and driving a car is an amazing experience, there are some essential documents that you need to carry. One such document is the Registration Certificate or RC of the car.
