I would like to thank everyone for their response, yes my cousin and I both came to know about the rule. None of this altercation would have happened in the first place if the traffic police would have reassured us with the law instead of switching between charges. Maybe he himself was not sure of it. Oh well, a lesson was learnt.

And clearly as others mentioned above, the number plate is wrong. The havaldar had every right to stop and ask him about it. Giving reasons that other cars also have it clearly not a credible reason, however valid it might be.

Also I see your cousin assuming that he wants a bribe, again however valid it might be on a realistic note, it is still just an assumption.



Requesting mods to change the thread title - clearly there was no "gundardi" or harrasement out here; just a basic police check being wrongly mis-understood.

P.s. @starfire, you might want to share this thread and the responses with your cousin.
I really don't blame him in case you feel he's going overboard, his past experiences with cops have just made him loose his faith with them. That said yes I did not know the rules either as I had seen many cars with two or three digits on the road, speaking of which your car too has a 3 digit number plate mentioned at the front right? Judging by your profile picture.

Just like that maybe he too committed the mistake. All the same thank you, I have shared the thread with him. Using this as a learning tool for the same

I am just curious. Why would the number be 0065 instead of 65. It is a number in a series that starts from 1 to 9999. What difference does it actually make?

The MH MVD website list all the numbers as is, none of them are prefixed with Zero to make it a 4 digit.

But the number of the issuing office should have the Zero prefix, (Eg: KL 01 and not KL 1)
True, why would every RTO have their own rules. I have checked one of my friend's number in the Kerala MDV website. His registration number is 10 and when we input KL XX XX 0010, it says no records are available. The website shows details of the vehicle when the number is input as 10!

That's the whole point, my thoughts are exactly same as Sheel. If the police were sure about the rule of having four digits in the number plate, why wouldn't they charge the offender for an incorrect number plate?

I don't see any harassment by the Cops. But doesnot mean that they are not capable of doing that. But that is a different discussion all together.

Writing the complete number is a mandatory requirement. But unfortunately many don't do that and the Cops also don't bother most of the time.

In the given case, the mistake is on the car owner. Why are the Cops been blamed here.

Please be careful before posting things on social medias like facebook etc when there is mistake on your part. You may end with with facing legal consequences.

The rule regarding the Numbers is that it should be displayed exactly as it is mentioned in the RC. No Alterations can be done to the number.
If Your RC shows MH 12 XX 1 instead of MH 12 XX 0001 only then you can omit the extra zeroes.

Well, if MH MVD is your criterion, rather check out the scanned copy of the Paripatrak regarding Attractive Registration Numbers published by MVD in 2013.

Format is also in accordance with the central-government approved HSRP system (High Security Registration Plates) which will eventually be followed by all states.

As per the rules here that are followed, single, double and triple digits need the equivalent '0's to be prefixed to make it 'XXXX'.

Its the color which caught my eye at first. Dont think the duke comes in blue. Looking at the bike it was really difficult to say if it was an aftermarket paint job as it was looking pretty neat.

Captain, perhaps you must start trying the probable options (writing Q very similar to 0, 6 & 8 similar to B, just to mention a couple of them)
