Meanwhile, with the government's assurance of enlarged garage inspection squad yet to be materialised, shortage of manpower has troubled the inspectors.
At present, there are only five inspectors for Aizawl, who cover the entire city and towns within the state capital district.
The inspectors are not provided with vehicles and they have to move around with their private vehicles to verify garages for the newly registered vehicles in the entire district with the mere 20 litres of petrol provided by the government for the purpose.
As a result, a number of vehicles have been left unregistered due to the inspectors' inability to verify their garages, sources said.
The Mizoram government has made it mandatory for all vehicles owners to have garage to get their vehicles registered. The order, which came into effect from September first, also directed all the already registered vehicle owners to have garages before December 15.
