The citizens who are using the old number plates are now in a situation as the Excise department has stopped giving them the new number plates and at the same time has started a crackdown operation against the non-standard number plates.
Back in the year 2006, the Excise Department started to issue the computerized number plates. It has asked the vehicle owners who were using non-computerised vehicles to apply for the new number plates.
Since the past few months, citizens were having troubles in getting the new number plates as the contract for the plates has expired and the new contract was yet to be provided.
