Yes it can be misused, but good that they are not giving out the address yet. That can have major implications. But if you really want to know these details, you can go to the RTO and find them out. I think they have to give them out under RTI. Also not everyone is listed in the phone directory unless they have BSNL.

Works all right. Though 0 BHP would be a tough engine to make

I think privacy concerns are valid, but since there is no phone number or address being given out, and RTO areas are large enough to have more than one person of the same name, its not the easiest piece of info to misuse available today given google.

They are not giving out address, yes, but what exactly is the point of this service. What additional value-add does this give over the usual way of approaching RTO and finding out the information if you really need to file a complaint against some vehicle.
This is a classic case of using technology to solve a problem that didn't exist and create more problems as a result.

Nopes, We don't have license plates in India, we have registration number on our Cars. In US(& UK too I think) they are called License plates because a person transfers his license plates from his old car to new car unlike in India.

Seems to a half baked idea of some neta or babu. This will be largely misused. I dont see any benefit of this facility. Somebody from KA should file a case in court and obtain a stay order against this.

For hit and run, isn't the registration number itself sufficient? Whats the use of this service other than to find out your chassis number etc., for yourself easily.

Just used this on my vehicles. It gives out the name of the owner, engine and chassis number along with HP and CC details.

One thing i fail to understand is even if its a hit and run case how would anyone benefit from getting these details? I seriously do not understand the use of this facility!

Would it help in case you lose your RC? In this case no one is dumb enough not to keep a photocopy. Can anyone enlighten?
