Kochi: Kerala High Court stated that companies having permission from the Union Government or an authorised testing agency to manufacture high-security number plates do not need an operational permit from the state government.

However, the court remarked that dealers of these manufacturers should seek approval from the state government. The remark from the court came while considering petitions filed by manufacturers, including Orbiz Automotivez, against the government's move to crack down their operation citing they need permission from the state government.

The bench of Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan granted Chennai-based company Signs India, one of the petitioners in the case, permission to manufacture high-security number plates for all vehicles registered before April 1, 2019. Further, the court also directed the government to issue an order permitting them to link high-security number plates with the Vahan portal.

Meanwhile, the petitioners are directed to produce documents before the Transport Commissioner to verify that they are service partners. After evaluating these documents, the Transport Commissioner should also take action within a month.
