MoRTH: India to combat vehicle theft with Microdot Patches

Union Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has issued a Draft Notification GSR 521(E) that aims to amend Central Motor Vehicle Rules and allows motor vehicles and their parts, components, assemblies, sub-assemblies to be affixed with Microdot Patches.

MoRTH has sought comments/objections on draft notification within 30 days.

Also, microdots have to comply with AIS (Automotive Industry Standard) 155 requirements if affixed.

About Microdot Patches

They are based on Microdot technology which involves the spraying body and parts of a vehicle or any other machine with microscopic dots, which give a unique identification.

Microdots and adhesive will become permanent fixtures/affixation which cannot be removed without damaging asset that is the vehicle itself.

These nearly invisible microdots are permanent and can only be read physically with a microscope and identified with ultraviolet (UV) light source.

Use of this technology will help check the theft of vehicles and also the use of fake spare parts.
