Faridkot: After banning red beacons, the state Transport Department today started the process to allot VIP numbers to vehicles of all senior officers at the district level so that they get hassle-free passage at police barricades and toll barriers.
The VIP numbers will be allotted under a new registration series.
State Transport Commissioner (STC) Tanu Kashyap today sought the details of all government vehicles at the district and state level in the offices of Commissioners, Deputy Commissioners, District and Sessions Judges and heads of government departments.
“As there are complaints of senior officers facing problems at police nakas and toll barriers after the removal of red and blue beacons, special registration numbers will be allotted to government vehicles (old and new),” Kashyap said.
She further said, “We have called a list of all vehicles in government offices at district and state level. After getting the list, the existing registration numbers of the vehicles will be replaced with new ones of a special series.”
