Hero Karizma XMR long-term review: Sports motorcycle or good-looking commuter? | TOI Auto
For those who the pun may elude, the owner effectively fixed the stickers so that rear drivers would read ’Sarpanch Ji’, which means head of a village. Moreover, another sticker with the word ‘Gurjar’ was flanked on one end of the tailgate as well, this was a cast-based sticker that is illegal to fix on a vehicle in Uttar Pradesh. Earlier in August 2023, having cast-based stickers on your vehicle was made illegal by the Uttar Pradesh government.
Considering the government’s directive to impose up to Rs 21,000 challan on people who use cast-based stickers and other symbols on their vehicles, it seems that the Greater Noida Punch owner’s pun has still costed him a reasonable penalty. As per The Motor Vehicles Act, motorists are not allowed to have any stickers, cast-based symbols or messages written on their vehicles under section 179 (1).
