Dear Siddi,
It is not mandatory to register any vehicle that does not ply on public road, and the opposite is also applicable. So if the forklift is never going to leave your private premises it need not be registered, I have been part of a major litigation wherein the RTO had sued one of the biggest cement company in Karnataka as they had not registered their dumpers (as they never left the mine area), the company won the litigation ultimately in the Supreme Court of India. But so far as licence is concerned the driver needs to have the required licence for operating a forklift. Communicate if you need any professional assistance in this regard.

Dear Sir,
No Registration is required.
But the Forklift Driver requires Driving Licence and he should be a trained one.
If anything goes wrong, the owner and the driver is responsible for liability.

Hello,
Yes, it need to be registered under non-transportation vehicles, if I am not wrong it is referred in Rules and not in the Act, ..... I also suggest you to refer the rto.kar.nic.in ; and also Transport Department - Govt. of Karnataka <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google ) ......for more accurate details.....
in rto.kar.nic.in , you will have the felicity to ask the questions, there must be a separate page for that.......
Karnataka motor vehicle taxation speak of the same, if such vehicles are not registered how do you expect the tax being raised......
have a nice time......

I am requesting to put a copy of the supreme court judgment for the benefit of our community. We are also facing same issue here in AP, where RTA authorities are demanding tax.

Forklifts are used for lifting and loading heavy materials or vehicles. This is the most dangerous job. It must be necessary for all the forklift operators to be well trained. They must be registered and should have license to drive these heavy vehicles. For more forklift safety measures browse this site
