A lot of vehicles like cars, bikes, tractors and even e-rickshaws show off the caste of the owners like "Jaat", "Rajput", "Yadav", "Mughal", "Qureshi" etc.

A Maharashtra-based teacher, Harshal Prabhu had reportedly written to PMO wherein he had expressed concerns of increase in casteism by such flaunting of caste on cars.

He added how India is still susceptible to caste-based crimes and such flaunting of caste should be banned.

As per the report, upon receiving the complaint, the PMO sent the letter to the Transport Department and asked to do the needful.
