To resolve the issue and identify stolen vehicles,as well asthose with bogus registration, and also to deny space to terrorists, militants and criminals a system was devised whereby vehicles-record maintained by Excise Department has been linked with the cell-phone SIMs of officersatthe check-posts. So far,400 vehicle-verification-SIMshave been distributed among the Police officers of all districts. With these VVS-SIMs, the patrol officers or those deployed at check posts can now verify the real credential of a vehicle through just a click on their mobile phones.
