The government has made changes regarding high-security registration plates (HSRP) and colour-coded stickers. These measures are now mandatory to have on your vehicles, as per the Motor Vehicles Act and Central Motor Vehicle Rules. “With the December 31 deadline passing, all vehicles that are registered before April 1, 2019, need to have the high-security number plates and colour-coded stickers now. Those vehicles found not having these important security features may incur huge fines from January 1,” mentioned DNA India.
Moreover, with high-security number plates, the blue sticker is required for Petrol and CNG vehicles, orange sticker for diesel vehicles, and green sticker for electric vehicles. The cost of getting HSRP installed ranges from Rs 600 to Rs 1100 for the four-wheelers, whereas for the two-wheeler vehicles, the installation charges are fixed at ₹365.
