LMV, HMV etc. are vehicle’s category in general, what we are discussing here is about car’s body type. I think LMV is on my RC too, but what’s the body type mentioned on yours?

The problem here is they only have these words in use officially. In other words there is no hatchback,SUV or Sedan in the Motor Vehicle Act or related Acts. There weren't any SUVs or cars that were called as such as well as hatchbacks when the Act was first made and so these terms were not needed back then. And these are not mistakes on the part of the authorities. The problem is that the Acts and Rules have to be amended and these terms added in sync with the present times.

My friend had his Safari registered from Kerala,2002 model and its an 'Omni Bus for private use'.
Amendments might be made only when the people in power are ones, who's completed schooling and are able to spell "Automobile" properly[lol].
Kerala for instance, has a government that thinks that the roads are meant for holding up people and conducting party meetings. How much worse can things be than that ? Talk about "100% literacy and God's own 'I really dont know what anymore' "?
Policy makers as of for now, most of them are national waste grade and are a burden on the nation, and we ourselves are responsible to a great extent for having them run the country.
