Why High Security Number Plates (HSRPs)?
Started in the year 2012, the High Security Registration Plates have become the standard number plates of India and will be valid throughout the nation. With unique details engraved and a non-removable snap-on lock that is hard to fling off the HSRPs ensure a lot of safety to the vehicle owners.
Chandigarh resident will have to pay Rs 160 and Rs 365 for two-wheelers and four-wheelers, respectively. Earlier, residents were paying Rs 79 for two-wheelers and Rs 183 for four-wheelers. As per the agreement, the rates will remain the same for next five years.
As per rules, the slip of High Security Number Plate is cut at the time of registration of vehicle itself. In the case of old registered vehicles the HSRP is affixed as per series, only one series is taken at a time.
The owners of vehicles having registration number of the CH01-BG, CH01-BH and CH03-N series that have been taken up for affixing the HSRPs will have to apply at the RLA offices in their respective areas.
