Rangoon (Mizzima) – Cars older than 1984 will be banned from Rangoon roads in the 2010-2011 fiscal year, a senior officer from the Rangoon Division Transport Department said.

"Many people made queries in our office. Not all old model cars but we will certainly transfer models older than 1984. They will not be allowed to ply on Rangoon roads," he said.

Current commercial vehicles, trucks, passenger cars and taxis have license plates with letters KaKa and Kha Kha, From Ka to Ah and 1/Ka, 2/Ga among others. All old model cars with single letter license plates from Ka to Ah are not to be transferred from the city area, it is learnt.

"Some might think that old models mean those with license plates with lower letters. It's not so. We will only transfer cars of 1984 models and older," a senior officer from the Transport Department said.
