These new license plates along with the sticker on the windshield would certainly be useful. It adds another layer of security against theft.

When do these 'High Security License Plates' with the finalized become mandatory?

Where can they be bought in Pune city?

Default High Security Number Plates

I am seeing a lot of the High Security Plates around now. The web site of Kerala DMV says they are mandatory, but I don't think it is enforced.

How is the system works? Is there a scheme of approving sources? Or vendors just produce them. Who controls the holograms? Does DMV issue them?

Does anyone know?

Also, is there a vendor in Cochin who makes them? I like the "official look" of the plates, and would like to have one. The couple of accessory shops I asked had no clue.

I dont know about Kerala but they arenot mandatory here yet.

A cheaper alternative for security is to etch the cars number on all windows.

Was planning on getting the etching done on my car when I get it back from the body shop. Anyone knows where I can get it done in Bangalore?

Thanks,
Rajan

Nothing fancy. Your regn number is etched with acid on all the glasses of the car. It will be too expensive for a potential thief to replace all the glasses. Meant to act as a deterant for theft. It is hardly noticeable and you need to look for it. I guess it will be something like font size 24 or 36.

Cheers,
Rajan

How does it act as a deterrent? If the font size is so small, is the thief going to look for it?

High security number plate means etching on glass?

I thought people here were saying about having something done on the number plates itself?
