The authorities in Bihar are cracking down on the practice of placing unauthorized name plates, microphones, and boards on vehicles. The district administration has initiated a campaign to remove these items from vehicles, as it is illegal according to the rules of the transportation department to have anything other than the registration number on the vehicle’s number plate.

The government has made it clear that writing anything other than the registration number on the number plate is a punishable offense. During enforcement actions, it has been observed that people are writing names, titles, and organizational names on private vehicles, taxis, and rental vehicles in addition to the registration number.

This practice is prevalent in both urban and rural areas, with people considering it a status symbol to have microphones and searchlights installed on their vehicles. Some even perceive themselves to be of high authority by putting these symbols on their vehicles.

Furthermore, it has become common for vehicles to display name plates with the names of political party flags, party presidents, vice presidents, and secretaries. The authorities have warned that strict action will be taken against those who continue to display unauthorized items on their vehicles, with fines being imposed on offenders.

In light of this, the district administration in Bihar is ensuring that vehicles adhere to the rules and regulations set by the transportation department, and individuals are urged to comply with these guidelines to avoid penalties.
