Call it making hay while the sun shines ;-)


Nagaland also allows another exemption for commercial vehicles. You can pay tax of any other state in India where the vehicle is in use, and claim refund of 90% of the annual road tax applicable there. So if you have a business where your commercial vehicles are stationed in different states for the duration of the projects, and then go to other states for the next one. NL is the best place to register them.

As said above commercial vehicles pay annual tax for all the states the vehicles run in.

Not exactly a rare sight in Haryana. Yes, the state allows transfer of regn. from old vehicles.

Re: Take a look at this number plate!!

I am not sure how the Police allow such violations. Infact more than the number all other things are more prominent on this number plate. And if you are a few feet behind, the number is not legible. It also mentions on the affliation to the United Nations. Not sure if the UN is aware that their name is being misused (since affliation does not mean its part of UN, but for the lay person not sure what would be inferred)

I am hoping that as part of all the reforms happening, such aspects and the flags are banned from vehicles.

Also have a look at the tints on the glass

BTW what it says is Secretary (TN) All India Human Rights Association, Affliated to United Nations

May be police are frightened that the so called "Secretary" would file a case against them for violating his (HUMAN) RIGHTS.

Most of the time thats the problem. Cops would have no clue what this is, and the fact that UN is mentioned, confuses them all the more. This is a similar case like the flags and red beacon problem. The problem is really bad in TN, not sure of the situation in other states

I think its high time that these objects of symbol or power are banned on the vehicles, and the real entitled ones listed, it should be handful and only on official travel.

Hyderabad Traffic police are very strict with illegal number plates. Even if it is a goverment vehicle a challan will be issued and the driver or the officer will have to pay the fine.

Re: Take a look at this number plate!!

I think people should be allowed to have names or something as their number plated as done in the US.
Charging them heavily would generate revenue for RTO

Re: Take a look at this number plate!!

Laws and regulations! Bend them as you please.

Apparently everyone knows some big shot or the other and thinks he/she can get away with anything and everything. An extremely common picture these days across Maharashtra and I'm sure in other states as well.

Is there a solution to it? Yes, in various forms but most importantly it boils down to the individual! Some prefer not to misuse their status/wealth whereas some behave as if they own the place! Sad.

Re: Take a look at this number plate!!

Last night I saw a Safari bearing registration no. 8055 written as 'BOSS'. On one side we are shelling money for changing our non-standard number plates to the HSRP plates, and on the other hand, a mockery is being made.

PS: Can I get HSRP number plates for my car with JH registration from any other state/ place? Looks like vendors at Ranchi do not make these number plates anymore.

I'm not sure if this behaviour is specific to KL, but I have seen vehicles marked "Village Panchayat Member" and "<political party's youth outfit> District Committee Member" and "Principal - <random private engg. college>" etc. on Kerala's roads. And such a plate seems to be a license to break rules.

Report it via Mumbai Police's FB page. This sort of thing should see swift action.

I used to collect these "BOSS" plates - in fact if you search this thread, you'll find several of my spottings. As for (HSRP? What's that - in my line of work that is Hot Standby Router Protocol) HSNP, I sometime ago asked the TN-07 RTO about converting my car to those, but the guy was totally clueless. Anyway those can be obtained only at the issuing RTO, as per the rules.
