    The Telangana State Transport department has begun registering new motor vehicles with a new ‘TG’ code instead of the previous ‘TS’ prefix. The officials have started issuing registration numbers for vehicles.

    Transport Commissioner Dr Jyoti Buddha Prakash launched the TG series at Khairatabad RTA office. The first number, TS 09 0001, was issued in the central zone of Hyderabad. Vehicle-owner Rudraraju Rajeev Kumar was happy to receive this number through auction.
