High Security Number Plates in Noida, Ghaziabad, Hapur, Bulandshahr

HSRP Rolling out in RTO Ghaziabad

The Uttar Pradesh transport department has decided to fix HSRP Plates on all old and new vehicles to make them safer and curb cases of counterfeiting and duplication.

HSRP is a secure number plate aimed to establish a uniform pattern of displaying registration marks across the country. The plates carry unique details along with the registration number. While the regular registration plates can be easily tampered with, making them prone to theft, HSRPs are tamper-proof, non-replaceable and ensure more safety for vehicles.

The transport department has issued a tender inviting suitable bidders to create infrastructure for supplying and affixing HSRPS all around UP. HSRP was introduced by the Centre and the UP government intends to implement the scheme as prescribed in Rule 50 of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, and Motor Vehicles (New High Security Registration Plates) Order, 2001.

Transport commissioner K Ravinder Naik told TOI that HSRP minimizes the risk of vehicle theft. "We have invited a bidding tender for implementing the project and to establish necessary infrastructure. The bidders will maintain and operate the infrastructure, formalities, services and establishments in all the districts of UP," he said, adding that the transport department would soon call a pre-bid meeting to discuss the issue.

Naik said all existing and new vehicles would have to use the HSRP. New vehicles sold in the country will come fitted with HSRPs and the transport department will organize camps to facilitate fixing of the plates on old vehicles.

The Supreme Court direction said states have to implement the project within two years. "We will ensure that all our vehicles have the plates by then. The transport department may seek an extension of six months if all the vehicles are not covered in the stipulated period," the transport commissioner said.

Officials said HSRP would also aid in creating a computerized and nationwide database of registered vehicles. Uttar Pradesh has a total of over two crore vehicles on city roads. RTO Ghaziabad, which covers the region of Ghaziabad, Noida, Hapur and Bulandshahr, has a total of 15,61,127 vehicles.
