What's in a number??

The vehicle license plates, commonly called number plates displayed at a street shop with various designs and styles...
All motorised road vehicles are tagged with a licence number in India. The licence plate number is issued by the district-level Regional Transport Office (RTO) of respective states - the main authority on road matters. The licence plates are placed in the front and back of the vehicle. By law, all plates are based on the Arabic (European) script, though many states violate this by writing the numerals in the local script. Other guidelines include having the plate lit up at night and the restriction of the fonts that could be used.
The President of India and state governors travel in official cars without licence plates. Instead they have the Emblem of India in gold embossed on a red plate. Refer..

That is an interesting sight. I never saw the plates selling at shop front like this ( unless it was non-real one)...
