Last year, we saw a massive drive by Noida Police in Uttar Pradesh against the vehicle owners that had stickers on them. Hundreds of vehicles were caught and fined for displaying various stickers including caste, religion and influential posts on their vehicles. Now, Chandigarh Police has started taking action against such vehicle owners after the High Court passed an order making such stickers on the vehicles illegal.
This video from Chandigarh uploaded by News18, shows the cops taking action against vehicle owners. According to the orders, any kind of stickers on the vehicle including the family name, caste, religion, job post and others are banned from being displayed on the vehicle. The new order also does not allow any display of posts including Police, Navy, Army, Air Force, Press, Chairman, Vice Chairman on private vehicles. Such writings can still be displayed on the official vehicle issued to the person by the government. However, on the private vehicles owned by the person cannot have any such writings. Only registration numberplates are allowed on the vehicles and people who do not follow the rules will be prosecuted on the spot and the stickers will be removed by the cops.
