The vehicle owners in national capital Delhi will have to compulsorily update their number plates to a high security one or they may face jail or a hefty fine.
The transport department has decided to crack down on vehicle owners who avoid getting the new high-security number registration plate installed.
The transport department officials meanwhile insist that they will run a major awareness drive before the implementation of the programme.
The new high-security number plates are said to be tamper proof.
It is worth mentioning that a vehicle owner will have to get the new high-security number plates by October 13 to avoid a hefty fine or jail penalty.
It has also been informed that as of now, there are 13 centres which are authorised to install the new number plates.
These plates are not only tamper-proof but also have several new integrated features.
In addition, a chromium-based and self-destructive hologram has been stamped on the plate apart from a new sticker, which will have the vehicle engine, chassis and laser-branding of 10-digit PAN number.>
