These are the temporary registration plates issued to cars at the time of sale. This is very common here in North. A car is sold after permanent registration application is completed with the RTO from the showroom. But, since there is a gap between application and registration number allotment and subsequently registration plates related formalities, cars are handed over with a temporary registration number. Now this number is also standardized. Earlier these registration numbers used to be prebooked by the dealers and then allotted to the cars at the time of sale when things were not online.

Based on what I understand:
T = temporary registration
0823 = Car sold in august 2023 (0823)
HR = sold in Haryana state
5657 = registration number
BD = code for dealership or city?

EDIT: quoting another post below:

B = code for dealer or city/RTO?

I havent yet figured out the last part. Need to check few cars from one particular dealership as well as RTO/city to verify.

Blue Number Plates like this are handled via MEA and assigned to Diplomats and UN officials. (You'll see CD/CD/UN which denotes whether they're Embassy/Consulate/UnitedNations). I see them a lot here in NCR.

For traffic regulations: As long as the Vehicle is being driven by the Owner/Diplomat to whom the vehicle belongs, the laws of thier own country applies to them. Basically they are immune to Indian Laws in case they break a local rule and in case of serious offences, they will be treated in thier own country.

You can find more info here:
https://parivahan.gov.in/parivahan//...matic-vehicles
In form-42, https://parivahan.gov.in/parivahan/s...vr/FORM-42.pdf you'll see that the handling is via MEA.
I see. Were these kind of vehicles discussed in this thread before?

Does Parivahan, or any other motor vehicle related website have the list of (allowed) vehicles on their website at one place? Can we find such information anywhere at one place?

I think lot of the electrical scooters need no number plate on it. And, it is sometimes misleading when you see such scooters with some number printed on it.

I am thinking this last code is 1/2 characters, specifying the RTO that issued the TR number (not all of them do it I expect because volume would be far lower). BD in the first case could be Bahadurgarh (which probably covers Gurgaon) and B in the second case could be Bokaro.

But aren't TR plates supposed to be in red background? Is that gone, now?

Red background plates are called "Trade Certificate" - TC plates, and are only used on cars that are driven around temporarily by manufacturers and dealers for moving cars around (like stockyard to dealership), testing, test drives, and being driven to/from RTO.

A temporary registration (TR) is done when a vehicle is sold to end customer, and is valid for a month. For example, if the customer wants to do permament registration himself, he would get the dealership to do a temporary registration in order to be able to take delivery and then he has a month to do the permanent registration himself.

Nicely explained and this could be a valid explanation but again, I cant say for sure as of now. There are many dealerships per city so the last digits representing RTO is a more possible scenario.

Regarding red TR plates, it has already been explained by KiloAlpha above.

Additionally, the temporary number plates are being issued in white background only everywhere and no cops have created issues so far.

Somewhere on the forum, you will see two different Range Rovers with the same plate and also documentation from the government stating that no UN Office exists in Bangalore

Re: Take a look at this number plate!

Sounds Funny. But,these vehicles are on road in India and as someone previously said that it would be vehicles of Consulates. We should be vigilant at such things and inform these to the law enforcement in whatever manner.

Is there a online channel through which such matters can be brought to the notice of the concerned? May be the Police would already be aware of such things.

There is nothing to report here.

These vehicles have been allotted Diplomatic plates by Motor Vehicles dept. in conjunction with Ministry of External Affairs. Every Embassy and Consulate operating in India registers the vehicles it brings ahead with MEA which in turn allocates the Blue Plates to them per the eligibility (no. of vehicles based on the no. of Diplomats and Staff recognized by the MEA). Not all staff members get these plates. Also these plates could be for both imported vehicles and also locally procured Indian manufactured vehicles. These vehicles are exempt from traffic laws and Tolls.

The first Numeric set corresponds to the Country and the second set to the serial no. of vehicle with the Embassy/Consulate (ex. "1" in CD Plate is United States). CD stands for Corps Diplomatique.

Certain global bodies like UN have a different set of plates and hence starts with UN.

They have all rights to be on the roads of the country they are in and is recognized as per sub-clauses of Vienna Convention on Diplomatic norms.

Any violations (Major ones only, resulting in to any loss of life or destruction of property) are usually brought to the notice of these Embassies/Consulates through formal channels (the PRO of the concerned Embassy/Consulate is first informed) along with a copy to local Commissioner of Police and Ministry of External Affairs desk that handles Embassies and Consulates.

Re: Take a look at this number plate!

This was one of the oldest in-use car (on road) which i saw in the recent days. Still don't know why the transport authority in Karnataka took 'C' (similar to the one posted in this post) to use for number plates back in the 80s and 90s, and not 'KA' as it is now.

Every state has number plates that start with the letter of their initial alphabet.

Anyone knows the reason for this?

According to Wikipedia (so trust it as far as you can throw me!), K was already allocated to Kerala, so C went to Karnataka (Carnatic reference, maybe?)

Re: Take a look at this number plate!

Is it even allowed to Print anything on a number plate?
Especially if the IND number plates become mandatory, how will these people find ways?

P.S.: BTW, the trailing number is the membership number of my first recreation club.

Re: Take a look at this number plate!

I'm seeing this kind of number plates a lot these days in Bengaluru. This may be of consulate staff from Denmark. What i don't understand is that they put the note that it is a Government Vehicle.
