The road transport ministry has released new guidelines for displaying the registration number on 11 different categories of vehicles. These guidelines encompass vehicles with temporary number plates as well as the ones in possession of dealers.

As per the new norms, a temporary registration number written on a piece of paper and pasted on the vehicle is now an offence. Released on Wednesday, the guidelines come under the Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR).

The new norm
The new guidelines make it a mandate for the vehicles in the country to have registration numbers written only in capital English letters and Arabic numerals. It also specifies that nothing else should be written on the number plate.

The norms also specify the dimensions of the number and alphabets to be written on any number plate. An example cited in a TOI report says that for all motor vehicles except two and three wheelers, the height, thickness and space of the writings should be 65 mm, 10 mm and 10 mm respectively.
