He said that “I wish to stress that the people will not be burdened when this step is implemented. However, the government needs to control the production of vehicle licence plates in order to curb forgery and crime. The government had yet to fix the criteria for the appointment of authorised suppliers for uniform vehicle licence plates.”

There is currently no standardization or any sort of control mechanism on who can or cannot produce the licence plates where accessory shops and signboard makers are all involved and basically anyone or everyone could have accessed to making one. It is up to the ethical values of the car owner or the retailers on whether or not they want to break the regulations.
