I just hate it when i see number plate written in local languages , it make you feel so bad , suppose these guy do some thing and you cant read those plates .. i really abhor these guys , many a time i have thought of taking a snap of their number plates and sending the pic to the traffic police help desk. Moreover i strongly believe that this is illegal .

Yeah ,number plates in Kannada is very common here in bangalore.
I have seen vehicles sporting a grey coloured number plates with a kind of blue light on it..frankly speaking its very hard to read the numbers on these plates with those lights ON.

Totally agree with you, in Delhi Hindi plates are used by "Netji Types" but that is illegal now actually has been for long but prosecutions have started only now. There is also a practise of 2 wheelers having BLANK rear number plates . Somehow the cops never seem to notice that , criminals can have their way if the cops keep snoozing. High time the cops wake up !!

Well I too feel that number plates must be written in English numerals.
I don't know why police don't stop any vehicles with local number plates. It is a hazard.
PS: Many countries don't use English number plates! (eg. Bangladesh incl. numerals, Japan, China etc.)

Easiest way to have some of these guys who sport number plates in local languages brought to the book is to take a snap of the same, and send them to some local newspaper, asking if these were legal. They would hopefully publish them, and the games would begin.

If that number actually appears on any record of the RTO in Rajasthan, some major fraud is taking place. 3 alpha registration has been discontinued from 1 June, 1989. It is RJ for Rajasthan.

Backseatdriver, no fraud involved here, its as simple as transferring the number to a different car.

It is very much possible to transfer registration numbers from one of your old cars to a newer car. For example, a friend of mine bought a Maruti 800 with a three digit delhi number and a 1 from someone for a couple of lacs (the car was worth 20-30k maybe) and transferred the registration to his Cayenne.

Are you sure that this is legally possible ? I was somehow under the impression that this wouldn't be possible. What happens to the older car : do we re-register it with a new number ?

Yes, this is legally possible in quite a few states including Delhi.

I guess in such cases the old car is fully destroyed by scrap dealers,and a certificate is issued that now the chasis no. and the engine no. doesnot exist.
