The Registration and Licensing Authority (RLA) is all set to finally implement the High Security Registration Number Plates (HSRP) today.
Already,the vendors that were selected for the purpose of affixing the number plates have been allocated spaces at the STA office in Sector 17 for commercial vehicles,RLA office in Sector 17,SDM (south) office in Sector 42 and SDM (east) office in Industrial Area.
Officials said that all the modalities have already been completed and the UT Home Secretary will launch the HSRP today at RLA office in Sector 17. Also the rates for the HSRP plates will be the cheapest in the country,said the officials.
In fact,the matter pertaining to relaunching the HSRP had been hanging fire for over two months since the MoU between the vendor,which was finalised for the purpose,and the UT Administration was signed last December.
In 2011,Chandigarh was the first city in the country which had implemented HSRP. However,it was stalled following the Apex Courts intervention. It was restarted six months ago.
