No fancy car numberplate issued since August in city
While a draft notification for this policy has been issued, the final notification will only be issued once the auctioning system is in place, Transport officials said.
The department has only been issuing these numbers to Supreme Court and High Court judges, Lok Sabha and Delhi Assembly Speaker and Union ministers and Delhi Cabinet ministers, among a few others who can book fancy numbers for free for up to two vehicles.
“We have not issued any fancy registration numbers since August 15, 2012, except in the case where such numbers are supposed to be given for free — MLAs, MPs etc. We have assigned the work of creating an online auctioning system for fancy numbers to National Informatics Centre and the agency is still working on the project,’’ a Transport official said. Suggestions and objections on this policy have already been invited.
The system of auctioning is supposed to stop corruption in allotment of fancy registration numbers that ails the existing system.
“People have been turning up at the Transport office and the Transport Minister’s office also asking for fancy numbers since the process of issuing such numbers have been discontinued since August 2012.
