HSRP Punjab

All motor vehicles in India must be affixed with a standardised High-Security Registration Plate (HSRP). This is per the legal mandate issued by the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH), made by amending the Central Motor Vehicles Act of 1988.

Therefore, all motor vehicles in Punjab must follow this rule. All vehicle owners who own a vehicle bought before April 2019 must register for an HSRP in Punjab online or in person.

If caught driving without one, you can be levied hefty fines of ₹2,000 to ₹3,000.

This blog explains how to register for an HSRP number plate in Punjab, the application fees and everything else you need to know about high-security number plates in Punjab. Read on!

What You Need to Know Before Registering for a High-Security Number Plate in Punjab:

HRSP plates come with a unique 10-digit pin and colour-coded sticker that can be used to identify the vehicle it is attached to.

It was introduced as a measure to store vehicle information within a central database and to recognise stolen vehicles with duplicate number plates.

Only people who own vehicles bought before April 2019 need to register for an HSRP number plate in Punjab. Vehicles bought after 2019 already come with an HSRP, so manual registration is unnecessary.

HSRPs with colour-coded stickers are mandatory, and those caught without one can be levied fines from ₹2,000 to ₹3,000 by traffic authorities.

Moreover, you should also ensure your vehicle is insured with basic four-wheeler insurance to avoid attracting additional fines.

Vehicles with damaged or faded HSRPs must be replaced with new ones. These could also attract fines if not replaced.

When applying for an HSRP in Punjab online or offline, you will only be asked for your RC details, like vehicle registration number, chassis number, registration date, engine number, etc.
