Hyderabad: Vehicles registered in the newly formed districts in Telangana from now will be given new district codes formulated by the Transport department. The State government issued a notification of the new district codes on Tuesday.

Only new vehicles that come up for registration from the date of formation of the new districts will be given the new codes while owners of existing vehicles need not change the district code, according to Joint Transport Commissioner B. Venkateshwarlu. All motorists don’t have to change the registration code of the district, he said.

The new district codes are for administrative convenience and to have a record of the number of vehicles being registered in each district, but it has also opened the doors for fancy registration numbers.

Fancy vehicle registration numbers are auctioned and bought for heavy amounts by vehicle owners. Earlier there were only 10 districts. Now, there are 31, which means RTA authorities will have the option of auctioning fancy number plates in 21 additional districts.
