- Mandatory for vehicles manufactured after 1 January 2019
- Chromium-based hologram and a 10 digit permanent identification number
- Will come with 15-year guarantee
High security registration plates (HSRP) will be mandatory for vehicles manufactured on or after 1 January 2019. The new draft rules from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways states that the car manufacturers will have to provide HSRPs, while affixing will be the dealership responsibility. However, manufacturers can either produce or source HSRPs from certified vendors. The HSRP will come with a 15-year guarantee.
The plates get built-in security features like a chromium-based hologram and a 10 digit permanent identification number. A chromium-based, self-destructive hologram sticker is also affixed to the vehicles and it contains details like engine and chassis number, registration number and registering authority. Existing vehicles will also be allowed to opt for HSRPs, but it will be allowed only once the old plates have been surrendered.
