Haryana amends rule 33 of the Haryana Motor Vehicles Rules, 1993

State set to put in place the system of assigning preferential registration marks to non-transport vehicles through e-auction

Chandigarh, December 1- Taking a pioneering step, Haryana Transport Department is all set to introduce the system of e-auction of preferential registration marks aimed to facilitate the motor vehicle owners and to ensure transparency in the process.

These Rules called the Haryana Motor Vehicles (Fifth Amendment) rules, 2022 and were notified on November 23, 2022 in pursuance of the Cabinet approval earlier accorded on April 6, 2022.

The introduction of this system has put in place the system of assigning of preferential marks to non-transport vehicles through e-auction and to transport vehicles on a first come first serve basis and assigning of ordinary registration marks by random generation using a computer system.

This will further help to enhance transparency while assigning of preferential marks to the general public and also help to enhance the State Exchequers in terms of fees and revenue to be paid by the vehicle owners of non-transport vehicles for getting the preferential registration marks online.

The registration marks are presently assigned randomly through software developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC), on the Parivahan portal but for assignment of the preferential registration marks, a formula of first come first serve was prescribed under the rules. Sometimes on a particular date and time, more than one applicant applies for the grant of a specific preferential mark leading the staff in a fix to decide as to which applicant has submitted the application first and to whom the mark can be assigned. This sometimes resulted into an awkward position as both applicants raise their claim on the said number. Therefore it has been decided to introduce the E-auction of preferential marks which will lead to ease of use for Public.
