VIJAYAWADA: The city unit of the Number Plates Stickering and Workers’ Welfare Association has urged the Transport Department to revoke the GO on the mandatory high-security number plates for vehicles.

State president of the association M Sudhakar, who submitted a memorandum to the state transport commissioner here Wednesday, told newsmen that the high-security number plates could be tampered with and that the companies to which the government had given permission to make them were not maintaining quality. “Even though the introduction of high-security number plates is a good step, we oppose the monopoly of four companies which make them. The number plates made by Utsav Safety System Pvt Ltd lack quality and can be easily tampered with. We have practically verified their quality and found that they are of low-quality,” Sudhakar said.

He said the government should take the responsibility for poor quality number plates. “As many as one lakh families in Krishna district and five lakh families in the state are directly or indirectly dependent on the profession. When private companies are manufacturing number plates which do not serve the purpose, why is the government not taking any action?” he questioned. 

Association state secretary S Nageswara Rao and Vijayawada unit president B Adinarayana were present at the press conference.
