The government has launched an online portal for the citizens who wants to apply for a high-security number plates for their vehicle (HSRP).
The decision is made in the light of the fact that due to pandemic the vehicle owners are facing problems in doing the same.
What is High-Security Number Plate?
On June 1st, 2005 the government of India introduced the concept of High-Security Number plates. These number plates are to be fitted onto a new vehicle which makes them easy to track when lost and adds a layer of security.
The HSRP can only be fitted by a government-approved facility as they have a snap-lock, which breaks the number instantly when someone tries to remove it.
It also comes with a chromium-based plate that is hard to tamper with and a hologram that is hot stamped onto the plate itself with information about the chassis number and engine number of your car.
This very installation makes the car a tad bit secure due to the reason that in case some tried to steal your vehicle, they need to swap the number plates. And at first, they’d be faced with difficulty in removing the old one.
And later on can be caught based on the new number plate that they install, for HSRP are uniquely made for every vehicle, and it’s easy to spot the wrong one while matching the details with the database.
How to Register for HSRP for Vehicle?
The process has just been made simpler and now you can apply online via this link: bookmyhsrp.com/index.aspx or if you’re someone who likes to get their things done offline, then you can get it done from your car dealer as well in exchange of a little amount.
The online form will ask you for your details such as name, mobile number, and more along with the details of your car that includes engine number, chassis number registration number, a model of the car, fuel type used, and much more.
Is It Mandatory to Have HSRP?
Yes! Currently, any vehicle which was registered before April 2019 in Delhi has to get an HSRP. And well! with all the added benefits, we don’t see why one should not, right?
So, spread the information with those who might need it and help save someone’s vehicle for you never know what could happen next, having added layer of protection always helps.
