From July 1, Lucknowites will be able to book desired license plate numbers ahead of car purchase

Fancy license plate numbers can now be booked a month in advance, directly from car showrooms.

In a major change in the vehicle buying procedure, the state of Uttar Pradesh has permitted to book license plate numbers even before the purchase of the vehicle is authenticated. From July 1, people will be able to get desired or fancy numbers directly at the showrooms, saving multiple trips to the RTOs. This provision will be made available at only two or four-wheeler showrooms in Lucknow, Kanpur and other UP districts, easing the course of vehicle registration.

First book the number you want, buy the vehicle later

The pre-booking of license plate numbers in Uttar Pradesh, checks the intrusion and recommendation of brokers, streamlining a transparent method of issuing number plates. It will further eliminate the middlemen to charge arbitrary amounts for fancy numbers, promoting a fair protocol and procedure.

As per reports, registration of vehicles can be done at the dealerships, only at the time of purchase- as you complete the formalities of buying the car or two-wheeler. The Transport Department is preparing to implement this system very soon across the state.

Transport Commissioner, Dhiraj Sahu added, "Continuous efforts are being made for the immediate process of registration of vehicles at the dealer point. This arrangement is to be implemented soon. After this, applicants will not need to go to the RTO office to get the number."

Auction process for fancy numbers to alter as well

The new arrangement will also alter the process of booking fancy number plates. Until now, people who wanted a certain number (desired license plate) had to participate in its online auction. After procuring this number, the owner had to register it with the regional transport office, within a week's time. However, such fancy or desired plates can now be booked a month in advance.

The process of tatkal numbers at the dealerships is also set to soon. People can indulge in online booking, if they want a license number that is not on the list of fancy number plates.

4 permit-related services now online

In a digital upgrade, the Transport Department has decided to take four of its permit-related services online. These provisions, namely the renewal of permits, duplicate permits, transfer of permits and revocation of permits were managed manually as yet. The digitisation will promote automation, giving an order to the entire permit system.

Applicants will now have to first deport the fees online, which will save unnecessary visits to the RTO amid the pandemic. It will also bring transport services to people's mobiles and computer screens and thus, at their doorstep. This also advocates a hiccup-free and transparent procedure of all permit-related works.

The first thought that pops up in our mind when we think of Khadi is- comfortable clothing! One might pick this indigenous fabric for casual outfits but who could have thought Khadi can also be used as elaborate bridal wear. A stunning display of a Khadi wedding collection at this year's expo at IGP, organised by the Khadi Gramodyog Board, garnered a lot of attention and changed the way this fabric is perceived by many.
