High Security Registration Plate (HSRP)

Chennai: As per Supreme Court’s direction, the State Government on Monday said that it will implement High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) scheme this year.

As per the notification issued by the Union Government and in compliance with the directions of the Supreme Court, the HSRP scheme in the state will be implemented this year, Transport Minister V Senthil Balaji said.

He, however, did not give a time frame for this purpose. In the policy note of his department for the year 2012-13 tabled in the state Assembly, Mr Balaji said that the HSRP will be fitted on the new and old vehicles in the Regional Transport Offices.

“For the new vehicles, HSRP will be fitted at the time of registration,” he said adding that the move would prevent stolen vehicles from being used for criminal activities using fake number plates.

The Supreme Court had directed various states and Union territories to launch HSRP, which are tamper-proof and non-replaceable, by April 30 for new vehicles and June 15 for old vehicles.
