The city government told the Delhi High Court that the drive to seize new vehicles, bought after May 1 this year and plying on city roads without high-security number plates, has been deferred for three days.
The Delhi Traffic Police was to start a drive to impound such cars from Monday.
Appearing before Justice Rajiv Shakdher, the Delhi government’s Standing Counsel Najmi Waziri told him that “to facilitate the car buyers to fix these number plates on their cars, the government has decided to defer the traffic police drive till October 3.”
The counsel argued that about 70,000 plates have already been made by the manufacturing company while the transport authority is yet to issue them. He added the concerned dealers too have not come forward to collect them. PTI
