To prevent thefts vehicles to come with microdots: Draft notification

New Delhi: Invisible microdots will now come affixed on vehicles and their parts to prevent theft as well as to check fake spare parts, the government said on Monday. The government issued a draft notification for amending the Motor Vehicles Rules.

“The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has issued a draft notification GSR 521(E) … amending Central Motor Vehicle Rules, allowing motor vehicles and their parts, components, assemblies, sub-assemblies to be affixed with permanent and nearly invisible microdots that can be read physically with a microscope and identified with an ultraviolet light source,” the ministry said in a statement.

Microdot technology involves spraying the body and parts of the vehicle or any other machine with microscopic dots, which give a unique identification.

Use of this technology will help check the theft of vehicles and also the use of fake spare parts.

“The microdots and adhesive will become permanent fixtures/affixation which cannot be removed without damaging the asset, that is the vehicle itself,” the statement said.

The ministry has sought comments/objections on the draft notification within thirty days.
