Delhi HSRP and Colour-coded Stickers: HC asks AAP govt to give people 'more time for HSRP before fining'
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The Delhi High Court has urged the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the national capital to give people more time to get the high-security registration plates (HSRP) and colour coded fuel stickers "before fining them for Rs 5,500".
A two-judge, which included Justices Siddharth Mridul and Talwant Singh, urged the AAP government "not to create panic" among citizens and said that even they were "confused" about the new rules, asking the state to give "detail instructions".
Asking the Delhi government about the steps taken to publicise the colour coded fuel stickers and HSRP, the High Court noted that the announcement about the new rules "was not made not in the ideal time".
"This is only causing harassment to everyone as many are clueless about it...don't create panic, give people time to apply and obtain, do it in batches," the two-judge bench said, as reported by The Times of India.
The remarks were made by the court while hearing a PIL by the President of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC), Anil Kumar, alleging that the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) were overcharging for the colour coded fuel stickers and HSRP that have been made mandatory for vehicles in the city-state.
The PIL also claimed that the Delhi government has nothing to do with fixing the rate of the stickers and HSRP and it was only concerned with implementing the Supreme Court directions that all vehicles should have HSRP and the stickers.
What are colour coded fuel stickers and high-security registration plates (HSRP)?
The HSRP and colour coded fuel stickers have been made mandatory by the Delhi government for four-wheelers across the city-state. The HSRP will be fixed using non-removable snap-on locks while the colour-coded fuel stickers will be fixed on the windscreen. The two are expected to bring evenness to number systems of vehicles in Delhi.
