So what is it exactly? HSRP is aluminium and fixed on the vehicle with non-reusable locks. The plate has a hot-stamped chromium-based hologram of the Ashok Chakra on the top left corner. There’s also a 10-digit PIN engraved in the reflective sheet.
It also has a hot-stamped film on the registration numerals and letters saying ‘India’ at a 45-degree angle. This prevents tampering and it is very difficult to replace.
Another plus for HSRPs is that important details like engine number and chassis number are in a database. This, along with the PIN are important if a stolen car needs to be identified.
They are fixed by automobile dealerships and state authority-approved private vendors. The font also makes it easier for the police to read the numbers.
For 2-wheelers it costs Rs 400 and Rs 1100 for 4-wheelers. If you are in UP or Delhi, bookmyhsrp.com is the website to purchase it on.
