The Ministry of Road Transport & Highway (MoRTH) has made a new amendment to the Central Motor Vehicles of 1989. According to the new amendment, all vehicles sold on or after 1 April 2019 will come pre-fitted with High-Security Registration Plates (HSRP)
According to MoRTH, dealers will be supplied with high-security number plates along with the vehicles by their respective manufacturers. This will also include a third registration mark which will be affixed on the vehicle separately.

Existing vehicles can also opt for the new secure number plates, however, the change to the new number plates will be done only once the old plates have been surrendered and destroyed. The high-security number plates will ensure areduction in theft and also allow tracking of lost or stolen vehicles.
The secure number plates will come with a 15-year guarantee, which will include replacement from the dealer in case of breakage within the specified time period.
MoRTH has also taken steps to prevent counterfeit plates. All high-security number plates will come with a chromium-based hologram containing the Ashoka Chakra, which will be hot-stamped on the top-left corner of the plates (front and back).
There will also be a 10-digit PIN (Permanent Identification Number) laser-branded on the bottom-left corner. The registration numbers themselves will be covered by a hot-stamping film with ‘India' inscribed on it.
Apart from the number plates, an additional chromium hologram sticker will also be affixed on the bottom-left side of the windshield, from the inside. The sticker will contain the registration number, registering authority and PIN, along with the engine and chassis number.
Furthermore, to ensure the HSRP don't get stolen, the number plates will be fastened with at least two non-removable/ non-reusable snap locks.
Thoughts On The High-Security Registration Plates (HSRP)
The proposal for the adoption of high-security number plates was made in April this year. The amendment to the Central Motor Vehicle Rules has been made after a lot of consideration, objections and suggestions from the public by MoRTH.
