HSRP plates elusive in Delhi NCR; Rs. 5,500 fine being levied
Since Tuesday, over 900 challans of Rs. 5,500 have been issued. Many BHPians have also reported unavailability of slots while some have got dates beyond March 2021.
In September 2020, the Delhi transport department mandated new high security registration plates and colour coded fuel stickers. The rule would be applicable for both NCR registered cars and those from outside states. Now, the enforcement drives have started despite car owners reporting unavailability of slots to affix the new plates.
According to a media report, since Tuesday, over 900 challans of Rs. 5,500 have been issued. Many BHPians have also reported unavailability of slots while some have got dates beyond March 2021. The Special Commissioner (Transport), has told the media that enforcement teams have been instructed to not fine out of state cars and those car owners who can produce a booking confirmation for fixing the plates and the stickers.
A CNG or petrol vehicle will get a light blue sticker, while an orange sticker will be applied on diesel vehicles. Older vehicles too would be required to get it done.
Some of the users have reported an error message when fetching details of their older car on the number plate portal. It is said that older data hasn’t yet been posted to the latest Vahan 4 database. In such cases, owners would first have to get their data updated on the Vahan 4 website and then apply for the HSRP online.
