Les plaques d’immatriculations personnalisées passent à Rs25, 000

Désolé de gâcher ces moments de festivités et de revenir sur la blogosphère mauricienne avec cette annonce. J’ai appris qu’à  partir de demain, c’est à dire, le 4 Janvier 2011, les Mauriciens devront débourser plus afin de se procurer un numéro de plaque d’immatriculation personnalisé. ( Cette information sera confirmée demain)


Ainsi selon ma source, les frais passeront de Rs 10, 000 à Rs 25, 000.

Il faut aussi se rappeler que dans un future très proche, il sera obligatoire de se doter de plaque conformes aux nouvelles lois. Les mauriciens ne pourront plus jouer avec les alphabets et les chiffres pour écrire leur nom sur les plaques.

Je souhaite une bonne rentrée à tous et à toutes!

  • http://deleted le_voyageur

    and what happened to the thing about changing the colours of car plates ?

  • http://www.yashvinblogs.com Yashvin

    @le_voyageur : As I mentioned, this should be a reality very soon but first of all, the authorities need to name official dealers which will provide the new car license plates. When? Let’s wait…

  • Sun

    But why? who gets this money? WHY must we pay to write OUR name on OUR car? why 25k? Isnt the car ours? o.O can sombebody explain seriously?

  • Bhooks

    Alors pa apel sa nimero personaliser.

  • Mike

    Well the government needs to collect taxes/cash from various other sources now that the NRPT and tax on bank a/c interest has been abolished. So this is just one of those new measures.

  • speed

    Is is personalised number or numbers of old cars that NTA have a list.. personalized number means “YASHVIN” for example.

    And what about people who have paid R1000 for reservation of numbers previously like “1213”, they can pay old fees to get the number on cars later on or the new fees?

  • http://www.yashvinblogs.com Yashvin

    @Bhooks & @speed & @selven:

    Wikipedia :
    “Une plaque d’immatriculation est une plaque portant une combinaison unique de chiffres ou de lettres (pour une zone géographique donnée), destinée à identifier facilement un véhicule.”

    Et mone dire “plaques d’immatriculations personnalisées”

    @speed : Unfortunately, I can’t give you an answer for this one. I guess that you should give a call to the NTA. Thanks for coming here :-)

  • http://hackers.mu selven

    but that’s not the point, the point is :p rs.25k is more expensive for already existing plates! I heard custom plates, if it will be introduced, would be rs.75k, anybody can confirm?

  • Spectre

    Who gives a sh*t anyway? You need to have a massive ego to get one of those.

  • jumping_turtle

    declaration ine augmenter??

  • Observer

    It is a matter of fact that NTA/STC have been identified as the indirect sources of revenues to finance measures such as the abolition of NRPT and also “Transport Gratuit”.

    Measures such a personalised number plates fee have been hit by massive rise. Same for fitness fee. next will be surely the new petrol price.

    and yet….we drive on roads which are like ones in sugarcane fields….

    le peuple admirable merçi a toi!!!

    P.S: In formal official language this is called “Tax”, in less polite language it would be “vol à main arméé”

    You can search on available license plate numbers using the link : https://www.govmu.org/English/E-Services/Pages/Regmarks.aspx

  • Vimal Chintamunnee

    Hi. For the numbers which can be selected on https://www.govmu.org/English/E-Services/Pages/Regmarks.aspx

    Example for a number plate “1234”, Is the cost still Rs25,000 or has it increased to Rs100,000?

  • http://www.yashvinblogs.com Yashvin Awootar


    From what I understood, normal plates cost Rs25,000 while personalized plates are at Rs100,000 each.
    By personalized plates, I mean, the one owned by Afrasia bank for example, with the text “AFRASIA” if I’m not mistaken of course.

  • http://www.yashvinblogs.com Yashvin Awootar

    You need to check the government website to get the link to NTA.
