New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: With the government tweaking rules under the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA), the transport authorities have started fining vehicle owners who don't have a high-security number place (HSRP) and colour-coded fuel stickers on their cars.

The officials have informed that vehicle owners will have to pay a fine of Rs 10,000 if they are found without HSRP or colour-coded fuel stickers. They said that nearly 240 vehicles were challaned on the first day for violating the new traffic rule this month.

However, it should be noted that if you have already applied for high-security registration plate and colour-coded stickers, you will not be challaned. The only requirement is that they need to show the acknowledgement receipt of the application.  

According to reports, over 50,000 vehicle owners have already applied for the HSRP and colour-coded stickers in the national capital. Here's how you can apply for the HSRP and colour-coded sticker in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh: 

Step 1: Log on to bookmyhsrp.com

Step 2: Click on the option - High Security Registration Plate with Colour Sticker

Step 3: Select Vehicle Make - Four Wheeler 

Step 4: Select the brand of your car 

Step 5: Select the state - Delhi/UP - based on the registration number of your vehicle

Step 6: Choose from the two options - Private or Commercial Vehicle 

Step 7: Select Fuel Type - Petrol/Diesel/CNG/Electric

Step 8: Fill the required details of the vehicle for booking an appointment 

Step 9: You can choose from the two options - 1. If you want the HSRP to be delivered at home (which costs an additional Rs 250) 2. visit the dealer/centre for the high-security registration plate and colour sticker

Step 10: Choose the date and time from the available slots 

Step 11: Make the payment online and you will get the ackowledgement receipt.

Step 12: Save the receipt and show to the traffic police official when asked for it.  

The colour-coded or fuel stickers are meant for identifying vehicles based on their fuel type. Those vehicles, which run on petrol and CNG, will have light blue-coloured stickers, while the ones that use diesel will have orange-coloured stickers. These colour-coded stickers have details like the registration number, the registering authority, a laser-branded PIN, and the engine and chassis numbers of the vehicle.

The amended MV act says that a vehicle without HSRP can be slapped a fine of Rs 10,000, which has been compounded to Rs 5,500 by the transport department. The same goes for cars registered in the national capital that don't have colour-coded fuel stickers.
