Bhubaneswar: With Odisha Government making affixation of High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) on vehicles mandatory in the state, many queries are pouring in with each passing day.
Vehicle users having registration number of other states took to social media platforms to post the query.
The State Transport Authority (STA) has issued a statement in this regard.
“If such vehicles are plying within Odisha for more than 12 months without NOC, they have to be assigned with Odisha number and affixed with HSRP,” the STA said.
“If they are plying within Odisha for a temporary period less than 12 months, affixing HSRP depends upon implementation by their original state,” it said.
“If the vehicle has already obtained NOC and submitted it to any RTO of Odisha, they have to assign with Odisha number and affix HSRP,” it added.
With the first deadline for affixation of High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) on vehicles in Odisha ending on September 30, 2022, 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|
