In India, it is mandatory for all motor vehicles to display a number plate with the registration number of the vehicle. The number plate should be visible and should conform to the prescribed standards, including the size, color, and font of the letters and numbers.
If a motor vehicle is found to be without a number plate or with an improperly displayed number plate, the driver/owner of the vehicle may be fined. The fine amount may vary from state to state, but it can range from Rs. 500 to Rs. 5,000 or more depending on the type of violation.
