How to get High-Security Registration Plate for used cars?

 

In a new rule mandated by the Delhi Transport Department. It is now compulsory to get an HSRP. All vehicles, new and old, have to get HSRP. 

But what is an HSRP? HSRP stands for High-Security Registration Plate. These plates come with permanent locking snap ups which are hard to remove. These plates have come as a replacement for old license plates. 

Old license plates were easy to remove and created problems for the users. Some of the reasons are:

  1. Cars with old license plates were easy to steal. Once stolen, the robbers could easily remove and replace the license plate. Then, it was nearly impossible for police to locate the car. 

  2. Even the owners used to change the license plate numbering for a reduction in taxes. 

To curb all these practices, the government came up with the concept of HSRP. 

High-Security Number Plate Registration comes with permanent snap locks. That makes it impossible for robbers to change the license plate. It also has a unique tracking chip installed with the number. Upon installation with the car, it acts as a link to the vehicle.

These plates were duly mandated by every transport authority citing it, as necessary. Introduced with a vision of providing safety to its owner, HSRP acts as an anti-theft material. Even if someone stole your car, you could easily track the robber with the help of these plates. 

Made of aluminium, these plates have an Ashoka Chakra on the top left corner. HSRPs also have ‘INDIA’ written at an encrypted angle. 

Benefits of High-Security Registration Plate 

  1. The link lock system makes it impossible for anyone to hamper with the plate. 

  2. The link system stores information such as Vehicle model, number, license information. This information is then stored in the central database. It comes handy in a situation like a robbery. 

  3. Sometimes, the owners of the car style their license plate according to the font of their choice. It makes it difficult for the traffic police to read & identify it. High-Security Registration Plate follows a standard font which is easy to read. 

  4. HSRPs make it difficult for owners to provide any misleading or wrong information about the vehicle.

Is High-Security Number Plate Mandatory for old vehicles?

Yes, all old vehicles must have these HSRPs. In the case of new cars, it is the responsibility of the dealer to obtain HSRP. The dealer has to provide the plate without any additional charges. But HSRP for used cars is the responsibility of the owner. 

  • You can obtain an HSRP with the transport department of your state.

  • If you have purchased your car before April 2019, you need to pay some charges. If the purchase date of your car is after April 2019, there are no charges. 

Steps to get HSRP for used cars 

(High Security Number Plates online registration for old vehicles) 

You can register online for your HSRP. For example, if you want to obtain an HSRP In Delhi, you need to visit hsrpdelhi.com. After online registration, you get an appointment with your nearest car dealer. You just have to then go to the dealer & he will affix your license plate. 

Following are the steps to get HSRP for old vehicles.

  1. Visit the official website of your state. 

  2. You will find the option of “book appointment for HSRP.

  3. Clicking on that will take you to another page. On reaching that page, it will ask you to enter your vehicle registration date. 

  4. Upon entering that, next, it will need your vehicle registration number. 

  5. After that, it will require your registered mobile number and chassis number.

  6. You will then receive an OTP number on your phone. This is a step for authentication & verifying. 

  7. Enter that number carefully. Upon completion of verification, you can visit a dealer now. He will now provide a license plate for you. 

Also, it will require some additional information too. 

  • What type of number plate do you want? Colour plate with number or sticker. 

  • Whether your vehicle is private or commercial?

  • What type of fuel your vehicle used?

  • What type of vehicle do you have? Whether it is a bike, scooter, auto, car or a truck.

Most of the time, this information is automatically provided by the registration number. But with some states’ website, you have to put up these details manually. 

But after inputting all the above-said details, you can get an HSRP number plate for old vehicles.

Conclusion: High-security Number Plate Registration

The High-Security Registration Plate is an excellent initiative to curb illegal practices. It is a means to provide standardisation to all vehicles. It will, perhaps, prove instrumental in bringing the much-needed change.
