The RTO department has started a new service due to the increase in road accidents and hit and run cases. Now you can get below information just by sending an SMS. However this service will only show details of vehicles registered after 2003. Good initiative, however more information about the owner like address would have helped.
Type the following SMS – VAHAN registration number (example – VAHAN mh02bt4396)
Send the SMS to – 092123 57123
On sending the SMS, you will get the following information immediately:
• Vehicle number with State and city name.
• Owner name
• Make of the Vehicle
• Type of the vehicle
• Registration fitness validity
• The road tax payment validity
