  • Petitioner Ranjit Malthora by senior counsel Puneet Bali submitted a automotive (pic) was bought from Delhi. Artwork on it was accomplished by “renowned Mexican artist Senkoe”.

  • The petitioner obtained NOC from New Delhi, but authorities in Chandigarh refused to register the automobile.

Motorists can persist with the stickers and paintings on their automobiles. For, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has made it clear that “Horn Please”, “Ok Tata” and different stickers on vehicles and vehicles can’t push the automobiles off-road.

Such stickers and different paintings don’t suggest alteration or change within the automobile’s primary color. As such, these aren’t any roadblock for the automobile’s registration, Justice Jaishree Thakur has asserted.

Justice Thakur added that denying registration due to paintings on a automobile’s physique defied logic. The challenge was raised after an inspector refused to move a automobile for registration in Chandigarh as its unique color had been modified from white to multi-hued.

Justice Thakur stated: “Any person who drives upon GT Road will see slogans and colourful paint job done on trucks. Some of the standard ones are ‘Ok Tata’, ‘Horn Please’, ‘Hum Do Hamare Do’, ‘Mera Bharat Mahaan’ and ‘Use Dipper at Night’.”
