The new number plates will have government emblem on top followed by the bar code, then the name of the Panchayat and a 10-digit bar code number. Thye new number plate will also have village name and will give details about the State, District, Taluq, Block, Panchayat, Ward among others.
The project will be implemented at the Panchayat level in its first phase and will be brought into effect in municipalities and corporations in later phase. In its first phase, about 1 crore number plates will be printed.
The PIN number given in the number plate can be used for even applying for a passport.The authorities will be able to verify your details using the house number given in the number plate.
