The Department of Road Transport and Freeway said on Friday that it has changed the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989, "to capture the mobile numbers of the owners when using services related to vehicle registration."
In this regard, an alert was issued last week for changing of various forms, the ministry said in a statement.
"These forms apply to various aspects related to motor vehicles such as, registration, transfer, vehicle register, renewal, duplicate copy, NOC grant, change of address, entry or cancellation entry for rent / purchase / mortgage etc.", it states.
NOC is No-Objection Certificate.
The Ministry also stated that under the amended rules, car owners would have to provide their mobile numbers when applying to use any of the relevant services. NAM RAM
