HSRP in Odisha: High Court seeks reply from Govt over possibility of deadline extension
Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today sought reply from the Transport Department of the Odisha Government regarding the possibility of extension of deadline for affixation of High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) on vehicles in the state.
The High Court asked the department to apprise it if the deadline can be extended or not.
The HC was hearing a petition filed by two bus owners who had moved the court alleging that the State Government set deadline without adequate infrastructure and facilities for HSRP.
The next hearing of the case will be held on September 30.
The Government has made affixation of HSRP on vehicles mandatory in the state while strict checking in this regard will commence from October 1.
The State Transport Authority (STA) said those who have applied for the number plate online before the concerned last date will not be fined.
Such vehicle users need to produce online booking slip during the checking to avoid imposition of penalty.
“It is observed that due to the sudden rise in online booking for fitment of HSRP, some of the vehicle owners are facing difficulties for getting a slot for fitment of HSRP within the timeline. It is, therefore, ordered that in case any vehicle owner has applied for HSRP online before the timeline applicable to his vehicle, he shall be exempted from enforcement checking provided he produces an online booking slip during the checking,” the STA said in a notification.
Below is the deadline for various vehicles:
|Sl. No.||All vehicles||Dateline by which HSRP shall be fitted.|
|1.||Vehicles carrying Odisha Registration mark and registration number ending with 1 and 2||30th Sept., 2022|
|2.||Vehicles carrying Odisha Registration mark and registration number ending with 3 and 4||30th Sept., 2022|
|3.||Vehicles carrying Odisha Registration mark and registration number ending with 5 and 6||31st Oct., 2022|
|4.||Vehicles carrying Odisha Registration mark and registration number ending with 7 and 8||30th Nov., 2022|
|5.||Vehicles carrying Odisha Registration mark and registration number ending with 9 and 0||31st Dec., 2022|
