    Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh, is one of the fastest growing cities in the state. As a result of this, the number of vehicles in Raipur has increased significantly over the past few years. Hence, it is not uncommon to see vehicles with VIP registration numbers ply the streets of Raipur. Given the increasing demand for these VIP registration numbers/fancy numbers, the Chhattisgarh Transport Department has introduced an online auction process. Thus, residents of Raipur can now directly bid online for VIP registration numbers of their choice instead of travelling to an RTO office.

    Elements of a Number Plate

    The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 makes it compulsory for all vehicles to have a number plate attached to the vehicle. The codes on a number plate can be divided into four parts, as follows:

    • The first two letters of the number plate indicate the state in which the bike was registered. Thus, if you reside in Raipur and have got your two-wheeler registered in Raipur, the number plate on your two-wheeler will begin with a “CH” since Raipur is located in Chhattisgarh.
    • The next two numbers on the number plate indicate the code of the district in which the vehicle was registered. Due to the increasing number of vehicle registrations, codes are also now given to RTO offices within the district.
    • The next element in the number plate is a four-digit registration number that is unique to each vehicle and vehicle owner.
    • Number plates also have a hologram with the letters “IND” under it. This is common in High Security Registration Plates (HSRPs).

    Need for Registration Mark/Number

    The Motor Vehicles Act makes it necessary for all vehicles to have a valid registration mark on the number plate. Vehicle owners are also required to opt for a font that makes the vehicle number plate visible from afar. The number plate, by law, should not have fancy fonts or unreadable lettering. The registration number on a number plate is of utmost importance since it can help in identifying where the vehicle has been registered and can also help in the event of any vehicle-related crime.

    The Bottom Line

    As a responsible vehicle owner, it is necessary to ensure that you are compliant with the various traffic laws and the laws of the Motor Vehicles Act. To this end, make sure to also purchase a two wheeler insurance policy for your vehicle since the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 makes it mandatory for all vehicle owners to have at least a third-party liability insurance policy at all times.
