Default Re: High security registration plates (HSRP) in India

Is it mandatory to stick that sticker on the front windshield that came along with the number plate? Are cops particular about that, any experience?

With all the office, apartment, fast tag, dash cam, customer care stickers..etc already over there, a little reluctant to put one more out there?

From what I hear, it is not being "enforced" yet but yes, by law it is supposed to be stuck on to the inside of the windshield. Quite inconvenient, if you ask me, as it is quite big in size!

What I did was stuck only the transparent part which has all the essential details. From far it is not visible but you can certainly see all details closeby. May not be the right way, but at least I have the sticker pasted without making windshield look dirty.

Dear All I have a peculiar problem. I applied for my Punto Petrols HSRP on bookmyhsrp, back in January and everything went smoothly till the day I reached the dealership for HSRP affixation. To my utter surprise, despite all details being correct in the booking slip, instead of UP14BQ which is my RTO, they sent plates with UP4BQ: with the digit 1 missing.

Since then, I have been regularly following up with the call center or the mail id given. Same standard response : "Saar, 72 hours" or "forward to concerned department Saar, this is the last time"

Nothing seems to be moving. Now I can book again, pay odd 600 rupees and get fresh plates, but I feel cheated and there is no guarantee they messed up at the back end too. I mean at the RTO/Vahaan end. Any clues/pointers folks? What a situation to be in! Any one has a connection in there please?

Sir in most of the urban areas, since many cars ply with plates from before the HSRP era, cops are being lenient as long as the number plate fonts are ligible and similar as the HSRP plates.

We lost our plates after wading in some water so got new metal ones made, the letters and numbers are embossed and printed both, they look exactly like the HSRP plates except they don't have any IND sticker or hologram.

I urge you to get simple plates like these and get done with the issue, it's really not worth the trouble. In the event that someone asks you about it, you can always show them the communication between you and the authorities about the HSRP SNAFU

I am currently in Ghaziabad (UP14) and my car (registered in Meerut RTO - UP15) details are not present on m-parivahan website hence I am unable to online book hsrp for UP.

Can we get the number plate offline or through some other channels as UP police will start challan of INR 5500/- from today ?

I can confirm this. Got my HSRP the day before yesterday (Saturday) and got it fixed at the Service center. Once fitted, they clicked pics of the front and rear HSRP on the vehicle, along with the windshield sticker, and sent/uploaded them to the RTO then and there. Today (Monday) afternoon my RC got uploaded to Digilocker (softcopy) and the hardcopy is probably in the post as I type this.

My only worry is they had to drill through the front and rear to install the HSRP. Now the front one is fine, since it was on the bumper, however, the rear one gave me a heartache since the rear number plate location of the Duster is on the rear boot door and not on the bumper. So they had to drill two holes ON the door direct to fix these tamper proof rivets. Now I'm worried about rust formation on the rear boot door as and when that drilled and exposed metal part behind the HSRP comes in contact with moisture/water during Monsoons/Car wash. I'm thinking of sealing the boundaries of the rear HSRP with a single sided clear tape to prevent water from getting in there. I mean why didn't they think this through? It's pretty worrisome and the service center can straightaway refuse to replace the rear door within warranty should it start to rust and I would have to bear the cost.

Pics please. This is totally unacceptable. Why did they do it? There are holes provided on the door for the rivets.

Given below is the pic, I checked the boot door, there were no holes provided, however there were 2 closely spaced circular depressions on the door (marked by the lines on the HSRP) which I thought were spaces meant for drilling. However, that would have meant drilling between the numbers on the HSRP.

Instead, they drilled on the left and right extremities of the HSRP (as shown by the ovals) and fixed the HSRP with the rivets. I did object to the drilling on the boot door, but they stated this is how they do it on all the Dusters. I had to give in. My cousin who has a Swift fixed the HSRP on a frame which required no drilling, which I came to know later. However, the whole premise of having the HSRP is to make them tamper proof by fixing them on to the vehicle with the help of rivets, which is also the law (as far as I know).

That's true. I have the rivets in top row above the numbers. Don't know if they used the original holes or drilled new ones. They are spaced far apart so they definitely do not coincide with the closely spaced ones you mention. There hasn't been any rust yet.

The best thing to do now is to remove the rivets. Clean the surface where it is drilled. Use some spray paint can to cover the holes with a dab of paint from the inside and outside. And re-install with new rivets.
