All of the motor vehicles from January 1, 2019 will have to be fitted with tamper-proof high security registration plates (HSRP) with several security features.
This comes amid attempts on making HSRP mandatory since over a decade.
It is now said that the security licence plate including third registration mark, wherever necessary, shall be supplied by vehicle manufacturers along with all the vehicles manufactured on or after 1st day of January, 2019.
The vehicle dealers will place a mark of registration on such plates and affix them on the automobiles,”
Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a draft notification.
It also said that dealers of vehicle manufacturers may also affix such plates, supplied by the vehicle manufacturers, on old vehicle after placing the registration mark.
The ministry said it proposes to make amendments in the Central Motor Vehicle Rules with regard to installation of HSRPs on motor vehicles and has invited comments from the general public and stakeholders by May 10.>
