New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Thousands of vehicle owners across the country are applying for high-security number plate (HSRP) and colour-coded fuel stickers with traffic authorities making them compulsory. However, it is unlikely that you will be able to get your HSRP and colour-coded stickers soon as officials have informed that people will have to wait for a period of four months due to high demand.

According to transport department officials quoted by news agency PTI, around 30,000 bookings for HSRP are received daily, whereas only 10,000 such registration plates are affixed in a day.

HSRP supplier Rosmerta Safety Systems has said that it is expanding the its booking facilities as well as affixation capabilities as doorstep as demand is rising on a day-to-day basis.

"Once a vehicle owner makes a booking the slip that is generated is valid for a period of 15 days from the date of appointment. The enforcement agency will not challan the vehicle if the booking slip is presented," said the company's spokesperson. 

Reacting to complaints that owners of older vehicles were unable to book HSRP online as details of those vehicles were not updated on the latest NIC database, Vahan 4, the company said that such vehicle owners need to log on to the website and get their data updated. 

The Delhi traffic department has started fining people for the violation of carrying High-Security Registration Plates and Colour-Coded Fuel Stickers on their vehicles from this week in accordance with the government's new amendments in the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA). Both private and commercial vehicles will be challaned for Rs 10,000 if found violating, however, the fine has been compounded to Rs 5,500.
