The cars in Delhi NCR are Yellow on Black plates and tax for Haryana and Municipal tax for Delhi is already being paid up on these ones. Majority of the cars have DL registration.

You would have to pay the tax for states that you would be driving in at their respective state border commercial tax posts. I picked up a XUV in feb from Gurgaon and paid commercial vehicle tax in punjab at the Haryana-Punjab state border.

Please check for the papers in the car, sometimes the valid tax receipts from earlier rentals are in the car. I had a valid one for Uttrakhand.

Thanks for the tip !

My B-I-L made the booking today for Monday (13th), and got the NG Scorpio !!
I don't know how he is sure that it is a NG Scorpio, but that is what he said.
Is there a vehicle number given in the confirmation details ?

In February first week I hired a Nano from Carzonrent Delhi for Rs.337/- per day (24 hrs) with all taxes and full tank fuel system. This price also included pickup at aerocity metro and drop at airport.

They were running some offer on online booking.

This was the most flexible way I ever traveled in Delhi and also cheapest too considering I drove around 40kms.

Yellow on black plates is an illegal scheme in Delhi. The new HSRP regulations have no mention of this scheme.

Are you sure about this and not confusing with yellow number plate with black letters, as I am talking about black numberplate with yellow letters.

The care I rented was Nov 2014 registered and was bearing number DL-1N, so pretty sure it can't be a illegal one.

Rettung sure about it. I have confirmed it from the Jt Commissioner Transport - Delhi.

Also you can check the HSRP license plate regulations. They make no mention of this colour scheme.

Commercial vehicles available on rent for self drive have yellow lettering on a black background.

My last post on this subject in this thread...

The Yellow on Black Scheme was part of Motor Vehicle Rules 1989, which was amended in 2001 to introduce HSRP.

Read the following one carefully. Makes no mention of the Yellow on Black scheme.

Yes, The HSRP notification is the same and applies pan India. Local authorities decide when to implement them. As to what Zoom is doing. No comments.

My point was that it is illegal/not allowed etc.

I know we are dragging it, but my point is if this was illegal / not allowed, Zoom wouldn't have been able to ply vehicles with this color scheme in the Delhi NCR.

I drove the XUV throughout Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, apart from Delhi-NCR & was not stopped for the number plates in any of the places.

I just checked with one of my friend, who has rented a fortuner from Carzonrent in Delhi and he confirmed that his car had yellow on black scheme as well.

Zoom cars in Pune have the same color scheme for number plates

+N

Zoom cars in pondicherry (saw over three weekends) have the same scheme and despite the "crackdown" (lol) on the IND number plates, these guys were running around like usual.

That means you can rent a Nano for 24 hours for Rs.456 and use it for 240kms !

In addition to the drastic reduction in tariff, Zoom has also changed the conditions for booking the Nano.
Now, you can book a Nano not more than 72 hours ahead of your desired date.
Moreover, a Nano can be booked for a maximum of 24 hours only.
Frankly, preferred it the old way...

A big thank you to Moderator Vid6639 for sharing this information with fellow enthusiasts!

Zoomcar - the self driven rental car service has been active in Pune, Bangalore and Delhi so far. The company had earlier mentioned their plans to expand into more metros in the country and the service is officially gearing up for a launch in Mumbai and Chennai.
