The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has written a letter to the government and the Lt. Governor about extending the date of color coded fuel and high security registration plates applicable to vehicles in Delhi.
Deadline to be extended from 30 September
Only four days to the last date
Need to look at the issue from a practical angle
The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has written a letter to the government and the Lt. Governor about extending the date of color coded fuel and high security registration plates applicable to vehicles in Delhi. The merchant organization has demanded that the last date be increased from 30 September to 31 December, so that people can get some relief.
In his letter, CAT’s National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal has praised the move saying that as on 31 March 2018, about 109.86 lakh vehicles were registered in Delhi. These include 32,46,637 lakh cars and jeeps; 1,13,074 lakh auto rickshaws and 70,78,428 lakh two-wheelers including scooters, motorcycles etc. While only 236 vehicle traders have been authorized to install this number plate in Delhi.
Now, with only four days left for the deadline, it is almost impossible for Delhi’s vehicle owners to put up number plates and color coded fuel stickers.
In a letter written by Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot, Praveen Khandelwal has said that, Delhi traders welcome the notification of the Delhi government for pasting high security registration plates and color coded fuel stickers. It was needed for a long time. But keeping in view the large number of vehicles registered in Delhi, its deadline should be increased from 30 September 2020 to 31 December 2020.
Kat has further written in the letter that before issuing any notification, it is very important to check its feasibility. Even if 236 authorized centers work for 24 hours, they will not be able to complete this work in the time limit and if they adopt the norms of social distances, then there will be big lines at each center. People will waste huge time in waiting for their number and after that it will take extra time to get the color coded fuel sticker.
Trouble is seen in practical way
Khandelwal further said that this issue needs to be looked at from a practical angle and hence it is necessary to extend it till 31 December so that the people of Delhi can follow the notification in a systematic way. He also requested for sufficient increase in the number of authorized centers to increase the chances of placing plates and color coded fuel stickers in a time bound period.
Charge to be fixed
Khandelwal further said that the charge should be fixed by the authorized centers to install plates and color coded fuel stickers to avoid any kind of overcharging so that the vehicle owners at the authorized centers are not harassed in any way and do not charge more money from them. Be done. Khandelwal also said that guidelines should also be issued for vehicles registered in other states that run in Delhi.
