    Default Motor Vehicle Registrations in India

    Post  anjan on 21st March 2009, 8:25 pm

    Here is a list of the registration numbers decoded to reveal the two letter state and the
    appended number to reveal the city in India, in which an automobile is
    registered.
    The whole link is available at this link:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_licence_plates
    Every state adapts its own State Government Resolution (G.R.) based
    system. This is in consonance with the Indian Motor Vehicles Act 1988
    that repealed the similar Act of 1938/39. This new Act came into effect
    from 1st July 1989. Since then all states have adopted this system for
    motor vehicle registrations.
    For instance, in Delhi State each category of motor vehicle is given a registration viz. DL 3 C S 1111,
    where S is for scooter. The commercial vehicles based on their category
    viz. taxi, bus etc have T (for black and yellow taxis) P (buses) etc.
    I have seen no other state following the Delhi system of allocating such letters for vehicle categories as S, T, P etc.
    The
    number that follows after the state code viz. DL 6 is the code for the
    RTO office where it is registered.Normally it is related to the
    showroom location.
    In many cases people take away the vehicle with a
    red painted temporary number on a yellow sticker (legally valid for 7
    days) from the showroom and like to get the vehicle registered under a
    RTO office of their choice, for which the permanent address proof of
    this place has to be provided too.
    There's another trade secret. No state uses O after the state and RTO
    code. For instance you will not find any such number MH 01 O 2222 or MH
    01 AO 2222. This is because O can be confused with zero. This can
    mislead investigators in case of hit and run accidents.
    The letters
    A to Z (except O) are used by every RTO after the state and RTO/city
    codes. When Z is reached, the new series to follow is AA, AB, AC, AD
    and so on till AZ. Then after A is over its BA, BB,BC, BD till BZ
    (there's no AO or BO) followed by CA to CZ and so on.
    In
    Chhattisgarh, I found a peculiar system for re-numbering old motor
    vehicles that were registered before the inception of the state. In all
    the cities/ RTO jurisdictions in Chhattisgarh the old motor vehicles
    have been allocated the ZD series after the state and city/ town code
    viz. CG 09 ZD 2222. This number indicates an undoubtedly old motor
    vehicle whose old number is gone and that has been re-registered.
    Other than Chhattisgarh there is no other state (please correct me
    friends) where the registration numbers earlier to 01.07.1989 have been
    totally obliterated from the records. It means that all motor vehicles
    within Chhattisgarh have the numbers CG__ __ _____ and not some older
    Madhya Pradesh registration. Jharkhand, Uttarkhand and Chhattisgarh
    states came into being much later than 01.07.1989. All motor vehicles
    in Chhattisgarh bore Madhya Pradesh registrations earlier and hence it
    was like MP 23 ______for Raipur, MP 28 _______for Bilaspur and so on
    for other towns post 01.01.1989. The numbers prior to 01.01.1989 were
    MPR, MPS, MPT, CPR, CPS for Raipur MPL, CPL for Bilaspur and so on. One
    cannot see motor vehicles in Chhattisgarh bearing such numbers today,
    as all these have been wiped out as they have been statutorily told
    re-register in the CG series at their respective towns/cities by a
    Government Order (GO).
    States like Maharashtra, Karnataka and even
    Tamil Nadu are very accomodative. In Maharashtra we even have Bombay
    state registrations ( Maharashtra was formed on 01.05.1960) like BML,
    BMX, BMY, BMC, BMF,BMU, also BMW and BMZ all Bombay city
    registrations of the 1950's. Pune had BYH and BYG. Nagpur had BYJ (my
    1955Landmaster is BYJ ). In the Mumbai VCCCI Vintage and Classic Car
    Rally one will find all old remnants like these in live, shiny metal
    and chrome.The state still allows motor vehicles to run in the state
    with these numbers even today and still maintains records in its RTO
    offices regarding ownership, taxes paid/not paid, offences committed if
    any and so on.
    The same is the case with Karnataka and Tamil Nadu
    states, where older Mysore and Madras state numbers (MY and ME series
    like MYB, MEB (Bangalore), and MDM, MSX (Madras city) still thrive and
    are allowed to carry on just like the way they were originally.

    This 1922 Harley Davidson photographed only a few weeks back still retains its original Central Provinces registration viz. CPB. Nagpur was the capital of the erstwhile Central Provinces,
    The
    practices adapted by Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are quite
    praiseworthy. Classic and vintage car and bike lovers like me still are
    able to see very old vehicles with their original numbers.

    Nice thread anjan buddy. very informative.

    It is sad to hear re-numbering of old cars. It sure loses its original identity.

    Thanks for the very nice thread.

    Great info anjan, One example i would also like to give(i gave earleir also but still) -
    Suppose a car has no. - DL 9C D 1234
    So, In this DL stands for Delhi as anjan has already mentioned all this above.
    9 stands for the nine zone which are divided in Delhi, C means 'Car', Incase of scooters its 'S' and private taxis etc have 'P'.
    And, D1234 is the real reg. no. of car
