If you are interested in buying a second-hand car, here is a great tip for you. You would have definitely come across news at some point of time, where somebody ended up buying a stolen car. Car stealer, steal the Cars, prepare the fake documents like the registration certificate, etc. and sell off the car in second-hand market.
wouldn’t it be great, if there was a way to instantly find out if the car you are going to buy is the stolen one?
Delhi Police has come up with an awesome SMS based service. Now, whenever somebody offers you a car, simply send an SMS and get to know if the Car has been stolen, i.e. if that registration number, or the engine number, or the chassis number, this will initiate a check on the lodged complaints database of stolen car, and let you know if the car has been stolen.
All you need to do is –
Type “SV (space) Registration No or Engine No or Chassis No.” of the Car,
And Send this SMS to 9811599901
I checked the service for couple of Car Registration Numbers, which I picked from online second-hand car selling websites, but for all of them I got the reply, which says “No information found”, I am considering it to be a reply which means that no complaints have been lodged for that particular number.
Go ahead and give it a try, if you know about a stolen car’s registration number, do check out, and tell us the reply you get, I am keen to know what it says for the stolen cars. As an initiative of Delhi Police, the question arises that this service is only for Delhi registration numbers, or for any vehicle which has been stolen from Delhi region?
