It's never going to happen, fools can try all they want.

As for China, theres no language called Chinese, so what do they use? They have a bunch of different ones like us.

I am not going to use, they can fine me all they want, I know most non-maharashtrians in Mumbai will not use it, all this Marathi pride crap is just going to divide this country along with all the MNS garbage.

So much for India shining...use the frickin global language.

I started the thread with the DCM's remark in April 2008 and the incumbent DCM that time is presently not in the Cabinet.
So cannot call it a election stunt.

Probably now Maharasthra would like to approach H.C asking it to permit people to show their party loyalties also in the Number plate. Most of the "local" number plates start with a political party symbol or flag.

this is so true. All this marathi manoos crap is just a friggin political agenda. Today for anyone marathi or non marathi reading a no. plate in english is easier.

Our dy c.m has brains in his ..... .

Another non issue and totally superficial move designed to mislead the public as an alternatives like real work are too much of a distraction for the incompetent. Language is for communication, not nationalism and patriotism.

In a country like India where real problems exists there are plenty of ways for nationalists and patriots to express themselves but we never see that, we see divisive politics to particular segments of the population, very soon we will have patriots in all states and the India we all know will diminish in some way.

For everyone's information who has posted on this thread, number plates are governed by the Central Motor Vehicles Act - a law passed by the Parliament.

How much authority does a state government have in changing it ? Zilch !

Simply put if I take my 4 wheels into a neighbouring state I am pulled over by the neighbouring state's police for not having a legible number plate I will file a PIL in the court against this law.

Simple. The government cannot for a handful of police officers (say less than 40k in Mumbai city alone) change the law so that lakhs of people and police of other states are inconvenienced.

OT - Suppose I have a marathi plate, I am involved in a crime committed in another state apart from Maharashtra what happens then ?

@ Mallu number plates, post - do we have a mod which can read malayalam ? lol hahahah

How dumb can the politicians get?

They are prepared to shoot off from their mouth to politicize just about anything.

Marathi number plates will ensure, Maharashtra cars do not travel outside Maharashtra. Simple.

Next we will have the requirement for a new kind of national permit. (which we already have today for cars.)

This is very true, the State govt can however come out with a notification which is in addition to the CMV act for additionally providing numbers in local language i.e. English with Arabic Numerals + another line for local language. Currently in Karnataka, its present but not compulsary and you can see them in only the govt owned vehicles.

On the contrary having number plates ONLY in the local language is illegal and you can see many of them in bangalore.

I remember a suggestion by someone on T-BHP to escape being caught by Karnataka RTO in Bangalore with an other state number plate - Have your number plate in Kannada!

These are just stunts by our politicians when they want to divert attention from the real issues. If we as citizens refuse to accept the change then there is squat they can do to enforce it.

This is the height of stupidity and impractical too. As pointed out in earlier posts, what about vehicles traveling interstate? May be we should make 22 sets of number plates and carry them and change them as needed, if every state decides to follow suit. Policemen/RTOs will be laughing all the way to the bank though.

The tata sumo plate reads: KL-01 AN xxx, and it is a police vehicle. Like the note itself states, note that the numbers are in Arabic itself. Only the alphabets are in malayalam.


And yes, malayalam has its own set of numbers, though I would not recognize one even if it danced naked in front of me.

PS: No naked dance, those. Just numbers.
