The Full form of NOC is No Objection Certificate. NOC is a type of legal certificate issued by any organization, agency, institute or, in certain cases, an individual. It does not object to the covenants of the certificate. The certification is an important requirement at most government-based departments in India. No Objection Certificate (NOC) is a legal document, which states that an individual, organization, agency or institute have no objection to the mentioned details in the document.


It can be also be used for litigation, employment, trade, immigration, and many other purposes to nullify any objection by the party concerned in the process. This legal document can be used for or against in the court of law. NOC usually consists of some basic details of the parties involved, and it is addressed to whosoever is concerned. Let us take an example of a person buying a vehicle which is registered in a different state, say in Punjab, to be used in a different state, say in Rajasthan. In this case, the seller of the vehicle must get a NOC from the Punjab Regional Transportation Officer (RTO) and issue the same to the buyer of the vehicle in Rajasthan.
