  2. Last year in January I applied for registration of my bike and also paid charge’s for the number plates but still after one year I don’t get the plates? Now why should I pay again to get the number plates? But why? It’s your department responsibility to deliver the plates of the vehicle on time.

  3. They are providing plates after 2 years three years
    Y not to gv plates with registeration
    What’s the reason of delay
    Wardens all are rishwat khor starting from upper chain
    They have daily targets of challan and do that unfair to ppl
    Instead of using evidence through safe city they chase and put elevation and threat ppl to call other police n close the car or bike
    They should be punished to challan without evidence so as excise for not issuing timely plates

  4. First of all the charges for the number plates are taken in advance. The registration card is delivered very late and sometimes after several reminders and follow up. I don’t want to comment further because it is an open forum.
    So why don’t they start a crackdown at the excise office in order to find out why the plates and registration cards are not delivered in time. Why always against the people???
