The Odisha government has recently made affixation of high-security registration plates (HSRPs) mandatory for all classes of vehicles registered prior to April 1, 2019.

As per the process, the vehicle owner needs to book for fitment of HSRP and make payment for the purpose through online portal authorized by the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to maintain the transparency. The online process is likely to prevent excess charging from the vehicle owners.

The Odisha State Transport Authority (STA) has come up with a timeline for fixing the high security registration plates. However, a lot of people are still confused about what needs to be done to comply with the latest rules and regulations.

High Security Registration Plates:

-HSRPs are made of aluminium. These plates are tamper-proof and come with two nonreusable locks.

- The vehicle identification number will be laser encoded, which is easy to be scanned and difficult to be tampered with.

- The HSRP plates come with a non-removable snap- lock and are difficult to replace.

-The HSRPs comprise details like engine number and chassis number in a centralised database. The data helps in identifying a stolen vehicle. The stored data along with a 10 digit PIN (laser code) helps in identifying a stolen car.

Who cannot apply online for fitment of HSRP through online portal?

- If the vehicle doesn’t have valid Fitness

- If the vehicle doesn’t have valid Registration

- If the vehicle doesn’t have valid Tax

-If the vehicle already taken NOC

- The vehicle under Non-use

-The vehicle whose R.C. has been cancelled or black listed
