Draft Notification Issued Allowing Motor Vehicles and their Parts to be Affixed with Microdots

The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has issued a draft notification GSR 521(E) dated 24thJuly
2019, amending Central Motor Vehicle Rules,allowing motor vehicles and
their parts, components, assemblies, sub-assemblies to be affixed with
permanent and nearly invisible microdots that can be read physically
with a microscope and identified with ultra violet light source.
Microdot
technology involves spraying the body and parts of the vehicle or any
other machine with microscopic dots, which give a unique identification.
Use of this technology will help check theft of vehicles and also use
of fake spare parts.   
The
microdots and adhesive will become permanent fixtures/affixationwhich
cannot be removed without damaging the asset, that is the vehicle
itself. The notification says that the microdots, if affixed,will have
to comply with AIS 155 requirements.
