PROHIBITION FROM DISPLAYING ‘ARMY’ ON THE PRIVATE VEHICLES

1.   Of late, a trend of marking `ARMY’ and display of regimental crests/insignias on the private vehicles by the Armed Forces personnel has become rather noticeable/popular. The AF and Naval personnel are also following suit. A number of civilians have also started writing  ‘ARMY’ on their vehicles. This may be either due to the fact that the vehicle may have been sold by an army officer and the marking has not been obliterated by the new owner, or it has been done deliberately-to gain advantage.

2. While  as guardians of national security, the inherent pride of the Army-man in his profession is laudable, his primary responsibility as a citizen of the country to follow its rules and regulations has also to be kept in view.

3.  The privilege to display or inscribe ‘ARMY’ on the private vehicles has not been sanctioned under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, nor under the State Motor Vehicles Acts. As a matter of fact, Rule 71 of DELHI MOTOR VEHICLES RULES, 1993, prohibits exhibition, display or inscription of any advertising device, figure or writing on any vehicle except when permitted by the State Transport Authority.

Only the public service vehicles carrying Government mail, by or under a contract with the Indian Post and Telegraph Dept, are permitted to exhibit, in a conspicuous place upon a plate or a plain surface of the motor vehicle, the word ‘Mail’. It may, thus, be safely concluded that no motor vehicle of any description or category is allowed to display any sign or inscription, which obviously includes vehicles owned by Army personnel as well. Therefore, the practice of writing ARMY and fixing/painting of regimental insignias on private motor vehicles of all types will cease forthwith.

4. You are requested to please disseminate the content of this letter all concerned accordingly.
