Kochi: The Kerala High Court has vacated the stay on the tender process initiated by the government for selecting a manufacturer for high security number plates on a build, own and operate basis at the regional and the sub-regional transport offices in the State.
Justice Antony Dominic passed the order on a petition challenging the clause in the tender notification which required the manufacturer to fix the security plates on vehicles on the premises of the registering authority.
The court pointed out that under the provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act, the security number plates should be fastened on the vehicle on the premises of the registering authority.
If adequate space was not available on the premises, it should be done on the space declared so by the authority.
The clause made it clear that the bidder should make arrangements to procure the space and plates should be installed under the supervision of the registering authority at that place.
The court said that further action in the tender process could be continued.
The petition was filed by a Delhi-based manufacturing firm which participated in the tender.
