Embossed number plates mandatory from mid-March

The Department of Transport Management has issued directives to all authorities to ensure that the government-owned vehicles must have embossed registration number plates installed by mid-March 2022.

Any government-owned vehicle without embossed number plates will be fined Rs 2000, according to the Vehicle and Transport Management Act, 2049 BS, after the end of the deadline, the department confirmed today.

Director General of the department Dr Tokraj Pandey, confirmed that government-owned vehicles have been found to not paying tax since 10 years. “Thus, they are instructed to install embossed numbers,” he said, adding that the installation of embossed number plates will help collect taxes.

The department also informed that the tax must be cleared at the time of installation of embossed number plates. It is expected that the directive to install embossed registration number plates will increase the revenue of the government and the process of installing embossed plates will also be easier.
