Default High security registration plates (HSRP) in India

Hi,

I know some threads are existing on embossed number plates, But this is different.

I have to replace the Number plate in my XETA, So I thought of checking out with Utsav Plates-from whom I had my Lancers plate replaced once.

According to their Website they say that by 31 May,2007 all cars in delhi have to get High Security Number Plates.

I did recall reading a few months back that the plan was in making, Any idea on the authenticity of the claim.

Although I'm keen on getting it done-I fear it may come at a premium cost,since its not yet mandated.

Any clue how much does a regular Embossed Number plate cost in Delhi and Where ?

india, manufacturers, suppliers, anti theft number plates, high security registration plates, counterfeit proof number plates


EDIT: Adding some more info about these plates:

Quote:
What is HSRP?

High Security Registration Plates (in short HSRP) is a number plate for vehicles which was introduced by Ministry of Road Transport and Highway (MORTH) on 2001. It is made of 1mm special grade Aluminium and is laminated with White/Yellow reflective sheets. It has embossed characters upon which Black foil with security inscription are hot stamped.

It also has the following security features to prevent counterfeiting:

• Hot Stamped Chromium based ‘Chakra’ hologram
• Ingressed IND Legend
• Unique Laser etched code
• Hot stamped Black Foil with ‘INDIA’ Inscript
• Snap Locks
• 3rd Registration Plate (A self-destructible sticker with chromium hologram pasted on the wind shield of the vehicle containing information about the vehicle)

How does HSRP helps in keeping my vehicle secured?

Laser number :
All HSRP have a laser identification number etched on the surface, which cannot be erased and is unique for every HSRP throughout India. This Laser number is attached with all the relevant information about the vehicle Like Registration Number, Make, Model, Engine No., Chassis No. Etc. This data is electronically saved in the database of the Government. This Laser number helps in determining whether the number plate is genuine or not and thus helps in identifying the authenticity of the vehicle in question.

Snap Locks :
HSRP is fixed on the vehicles using temper-evident, non-removable and non-reusable snap locks which makes it extremely difficult to remove the number plate once it has been affixed making it difficult for criminals to steal vehicle and replacing the HSRP with ordinary number plates.

Reflective Sheet :
The HSRP also have a white or Yellow reflective sheet laminated on its surface making the vehicle more visible during night thus avoiding accidents.

Standard Format :
There are only 4 sizes of HSRP and the Registration Numbers are embossed very clearly on it making them highly readable. This helps the law enforcement agencies to curb down crime in various ways.

Excellent Finish :
We make our HSRP with the best available raw material (imported from Germany and Japan) in a very advanced production Line manufactured in The Netherlands. The end result is a number plate which has an excellent finish and unparalleled looks making your vehicle look even better.

What happens in case the HSRP is damaged/lost and it needs to be replaced?

The damaged HSRP has to be brought to the RTO and a fresh application for replacement has to be made. In case the HSRP is lost due to some reason, it is recommended that a diary be registered in your Police Station mentioning the Laser Identification number of the HSRP that has been lost and a fresh application has to be made for replacement of the lost HSRP.

I already have HSRP affixed on my vehicle, but I can’t see any laser identification number on it. Why?

The number plate that you have on your vehicle, is not HSRP. It is only a look-alike. You would have to get a new HSRP from the registered vendor approved by the transport department of your state.

Embossed high-security plates in Bangalore cost Rs 800 for the set. They come in one standard size only for all cars.

Thanks for that link. Was wondering where to get this done in Mumbai. Sent them an inquiry, to which they responded within 5 minutes with a call. Just wonder if the front plate would fit correctly on the Octi's bumper. He said he's bringing me a sample tomorrow.

I'm not sure how useful are those snaplocks. You can easily replace these snaplocks with normal screws. The embossed plates as on V12's bike. The unique serial number wasnt available at that time.

Chromium based hologram with chakra
India inscribed in hot stamp.

Car Shringar got it done for me - I know him well and can put you on to him if you want the plates. Only 1 govt agent in Bangalore is authorized to do it - and all these number plates are orderd thru him.

The non-removable snap lock is designed in such a way that once you fasten the plates on using them, you need to shear the tops off them and they can never be unscrewed/removed after that.

Hey gordon. Thanks for that snap. I think I may go for the bike numberplate for the front bumper (if thats allowed that is).

Just a thought. If this is compulsory for bikes, how the heck am I supposed to fit that on my ZZR!?!? maybe the Govt. should be like the rest of the world and do away with front plates on 2 wheelers.
