You must have heard of a high security number plate, a term that is doing the rounds in the country these days. What is high security number plate? It is nothing but an innovative initiative taken by the Government and will soon extend to almost all States and regions in the country.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and the Delhi Transport Department have now made it compulsory for all vehicles to obtain this HSRP or high security registration plates along with colour-coded plates for those vehicles sold prior to April, 2019. Not obtaining such plates will lead to fines between Rs. 5-10,000 as per the regulations notified officially by the Government. This means that those who purchased their vehicles prior to 1st April, 2019, should get their number plates changed at the earliest within the stipulated deadline.
These number plates are crafted from aluminum and are affixed with at least two non-reusable and special snap-on lock systems to the vehicle in question. The plate comes with a specifically tailored (20 mm x 20 mm) Ashok Chakra hologram in blue which is hot-stamped and chromium based, on the left-side corner (on top). There is also a permanent 10-digit identification number or the PIN which is immaculately laser branded onto the corner in the bottom (left-side). A hot-stamped film is also used for the alphabets and numerals which have INDIA inscribed on them. The angle here is 45 degrees. The plate is also connected digitally to the installation vehicle.

The Central Government is yet to fix any universal HSRP charge as of yet. Hence, it may vary across several Indian States. The average price is approximately Rs. 400 for two-wheelers while this may surpass Rs. 1,100 for four-wheelers, based on their category. The colour-coded sticker, another compulsory feature, will cost approximately Rs. 100 as per reports.

The rule will also extend to many other States in the near future so you should keep a lookout for the same.
