States like Delhi and Uttar Pradesh have already made it mandatory for vehicles to install the newly introduced high-security registration plate and colour-coded stickers on the number plates of vehicles sold before April 2019.
The government has notified that violators in Delhi can be fined up to ₹10,000, which is compoundable to ₹5,500 under the amended MV Act.
So if you don’t want to chunk out that hefty amount from your pocket, then make sure you have the new registration plate installed and here is how you can do so.
But first, what is HSPR?
HSRP is a chromium-based hologram applied by hot stamping on the number plates both at the front and back. These plates, besides entertaining certain security features, also allow in the identification of vehicles based on their fuel type.
When applying for the plate or sticker on the website, you won’t be asked to upload any document. All you need to do is keep your vehicle’s RC (registration certificate) in hand for information like registration number, registration date, chassis number and engine number.
