Cuttack: With the deadline for affixation of High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) on vehicles in Odisha ending on September 30, 2022, the State Transport Authority (STA) has geared up to impose penalty on the violators from October 1, 2022, official sources said today.
Driving HSRP-less vehicles having registration number ending with 1, 2, 3 and 4 can attract a fine of Rs 5,000 or Rs 10,000 from the aforementioned date.
Dipti Ranjan Patra, Joint Commissioner, Transport, Technical said, “As on September 13, a total of 1,065,312 vehicle owners have booked slot, out of which HSRP has been affixed in 593,717 vehicles.”
He further said, “In case the vehicle is not affixed with HSRP within the scheduled date mentioned above, e-challan shall be issued against the offending vehicle and attract fine of Rs 5,000 or Rs 10,000 under Section 192 of M.V. Act, 1988 as the case may be.”
“Old number plates are easy to tamper with and can be misused by thieves. However, the HSRP comes with a non-removable snap-lock and are difficult to replace. These plates are tamper-proof and come with two non-reusable locks,” he said
Vehicle owners shall have to take necessary steps to get the HSRP affixed on their vehicles as per timeline given below:
