In the recent times it had come to the notice that there were many vehicles plying on the roads with fake or duplicate number plates, to tackle this issue the number plates makers have been asked to follow a standard operating procedure.
ACP SK Marihal and PI R R Patil speaking to the number plate vendors said not to write/make number plates without verifying original R.C and to maintain register of total numbers written. And also instructed to write with standard sizes only. Warned that violators will be dealt strictly with law.
All those who are indulged in the making of number plates must check the copy of Registration Certificate (RC) before starting work. They should also keep a photocopy of the RC with them for record purposes. Due action under various sections can be taken against the painters/vendors if they fail to adhere to these norms.
