    Soon Automakers To Deliver Cars Fitted With Number Plates

    Currently, a vehicle license plate -- which is attached to vehicles bearing its official registration number, commonly known as "a number plate" -- is procured by various states separately from designated agencies.

    "Manufacturers will fit the plates and embossing will be done later through machine," road and highways Minister Nitin Gadkari told PTI.

    The minister said the new technology number plates were intended to bring relief not only to consumers but also to bring in uniformity across states as each state used to buy these plates earlier, said the PTI report.

    The prices for number plates procured by states ranged from Rs 800 to Rs 40,000, he added.

    Gadkari further said that there would be no compromise in terms of security as far as vehicles were concerned and such norms will be same for all models be it economy or luxury.

    "We will not compromise with security.... what security norms we have done for economic models, same is for luxury and SUVs", the minister told PTI.

    The government has recently made it mandatory for all cars manufactured after July 2019 to have air bags for drivers and seat-belt reminders besides speeding alert systems beyond 80 kmph and sensors for reverse parking to avoid accidents.
