In a letter, Commerce and Transport department Joint Secretary Kishore Chandra Das directed the State Transport Commissioner to find out how many old vehicles are there in the State and how many days it will take to affix HSRP in them.
The Orissa High Court has asked the State transport department to inform if the deadline of affixation of HSRP can be extended.
With the last date for affixing high security registration plate (HSRP) approaching fast, vehicle owners are at their wits’ end for not getting a date. They are worried because if they don’t replace their old number plates with the HSRP number plates before expiry of the period, they are sure to cough up fines.
For vehicle numbers ending with 1,2,3 and 4, the last date for affixing the new number plate is September 30.
Odisha government will start collecting fines from the people who have not fixed High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) on their vehicles with registration numbers ending with 1, 2, 3 and 4 from October 1, an official said on Thursday.
