Some of the dealers are selling cars, without registration basis there 'Gate Pass' in Delhi. Do note - driving an unregistered vehicle is a serious offence and even on day 1 - if caught - without RTO Receipt or Trade Certificate, can lead the vehicle to be impounded and fine. Do not get carried away by dealer casual attitude, as Motor Vehicle Act is much beyond same and is a law.

what is fine of having a fancy number plate on the bike? Actually, What happened yesterday, i was going to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib. I just stopped my bike near purana Qila Road because i wasn't aware about the exact way of Bangla Sahib so i was trying to search in Google map meanwhile 1 star traffic cop came to me and said that you will be challaned. I requested him sir, I am just trying to find the way of Bangla Sahib, But Rules are made fo every one and i honestly respect it. but what if i didn't stop there. one thing is there that i am not aware about fancy number palate challan. so the concern issue is that the traffic cop was saying for 5000/- Rupees challan and said that your licence will be seized also for 1 and half month. and what i found on google search engine that this is only 100/- rupees(1st offence), 300/- Rupees (subsequent offences) it means i was scared/threatened by him. instead of it he must have challaned me but i requested him that i am not aware about it so after requesting him He let me go. so it's my humble request to make me aware how much challan we have to pay for the fancy number plate if we are found guilty.

Sir,
I also agreed with mr.shahnawaz ahmed that the policemen should be in front of signal to guide the traffic instead of after the signal.

Sometime police is stopping and saying that left was not free therefore fine. What is the fine in that case. Also How one can identify if going left side is not free/allowed? In fact I feel traffic police should stay in front of and manage it but usually they are after the signal to stop and collect the fine.
