Now anybody can know the details of any car just with a Reg. Number!
How did you come to know this?
Some time ago, I was engaged in the audit of softwares called Vahan and Saarthi developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC) and came to know about this facility but did not try it and forgot about it. Noticed this number on some sites a couple of days ago, so put it here.
Thanks for the info. It really works like a charm. I tested for my car and it revealed the necessary information (Owner’s name, Car Model, Owner Serial No., Registration / Road Tax Validity etc). I’m sure that it will benefit buyers a lot in used car market but on the other hand, criminals will find their own way too to exploit this system.
They could do well to provide address too which would then be useful to track down hit and run vehicles.
Providing personal information to any random person through SMS can be potentially unsafe too. If one has noted down the registration number of vehicle and reported to the concerned authorities, then it’s duty of them to track the offender and take appropriate action.
