@sgiitk Now those are statements that I agree with
Immigrants the world around have added value to their new homes and unlocked potential for the natives too.

You are also correct about the 5 generation statement. In fact removing families who are only 2 generations old here will rid Delhi of all the Punjabis, Bengalis and Kashmiris who came in only post the division of '47. I think that would be at least 70% of the total if not more.

However coming back to the RTO & police setup.

Delhi has an efficient RTO setup in place, traffic police what is that??
Bombay has the country's most effective and least corrupt Traffic police, period!
Normal Police in both cities are full of mostly corrupt people with very few who actually strive to serve and the remaining are just fillers for whom it is another govt. job with a pension attached to it at the end.

The prosperity of Delhi is due to the immigrants! Whether you like the migrant labour settlements or not is up to you.

A real life incident: A few years ago the State's Transport Minister (Maharashtra) was holding a press conference.An opposition MLA entered the venue and handed him over a PUC (Pollution Under Control) certificate with the registration number of the Ambassador car he had travelled in,to the venue.The Minister was taken aback.He issued orders to cancel the licence of the PUC centre that had issue such a farcical certificate.
A few months later, the PUC centre was back in business!

What i wonder is! you were carrying a Registration smart card etched with your name of a wrong car.

I mean did they issue you a new registration card.

This happened to us once. One of my friend bought a car and asked me to register it. After a week the ajent i employed call me and gave me a number on the phone. But i told my friend not to make a plate unless and until we receive the papers. When we received it, it was a number about 80 numbers further. I never paid him the pending amount and I changed my agent there on.

Precisely why we have not bothered lodging a complaint. Its a waste of OUR time and energy. Those corrupt people are hardly bothered.

Default Not Surprised

When I took delivery of my car about 1.5 yrs back, I had asked for etching the Reg Number on all the windows. The Sales guy told me that sometimes the number given to the car is wrong from the RTO and hence told me to wait till the first service to get the numbers etched.

He said it was very common for the RTO guys to give a wrong number and the smart card would be the right place to check for the vehicle number. And BTW this was Tardeo RTO.

Very Very Weird! We get our registration done in 2 days flat if we don't apply for any special number.

HAve any of you been inside the RTO archive centre by any chance? If you have contacts there, you should go have a look. Enter the RTO main gate and take an immediate right. The second building on the right hand side is where all the old archives are.

I wish someone can go there and see for themselves, as it looks like an old World War two style disused army barrack or something.........right out of Call of Duty!!
