No more vehicles can drive on the road without the High Security Registration Plate (HSRP). All new and old vehicles are required to have this number plate. Violations of the law will result in fines of up to Rs 10,000, which will be levied on all vehicles by the end of December 2022.
All vehicles registered since 2019 have used this license plate number, while all vehicles registered before 2019 have the old license plate number. But now the old number plate no longer runs.
The state transport authority has made it mandatory to use the new license plate. By the end of December 2022, all vehicles in the state have been strictly instructed to install this new license plate.
However, there are 45 recognized agencies across the country for supplying this number plate, while there are 4 for Odisha. Similarly, a special Portal has been set up to get the license plate.
Applications must be made to the SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers) Portal. The vehicle owner will choose the agency according to their convenience. However, the HSRP plate of any other state vehicle will not be available in Odisha.
Those who have brought a NOC (No Objection Certificate) can apply here as well as others. The number plate will be available within a week of the application.
As per the reports, this new plate number is different from the old one. It has a laser code, which can be read by a laser gun. This code is also registered in the “Vahan” app.
It contains the details of the vehicle. So if the vehicle is stolen, it will be easier to find out. Similarly, CCTV has been installed in various parts of the state to detect traffic violators. The code will be recorded on CCTV and sent to their home if someone violates the traffic rules.
