Even as the UT Administration lags behind Punjab, Haryana and Delhi in introducing the High Security Registration Plates (HSRP), the tentative rates for the plates are higher as compared to the neighbouring states. UT is most likely to start the process by August 1.
As per sources, the tentative rates of HSRP for four wheeler would be between Rs 200-250, while in Delhi it is Rs 214. Similarly, for a two wheeler in Chandigarh, the HSRO would tentatively cost between Rs 150-175 while in Delhi, it is less than Rs 100.
Interestingly, even Haryana is costlier than Delhi when it comes to HSRP with the price for affixing of registration plate on motorcycle and tractor having been been fixed at Rs 121, for scooters it will be Rs 140. The new registration plate would cost Rs 161 to the owners of the three-wheelers. For light motor vehicle it is Rs 364 and for commercial vehicles the rate is Rs 280.
In Chandigarh, the plates will be affixed on over nine lakh vehicles registered in the city and with an average of 200 vehicles registration per day, the number is expected to rise. While it would be mandatory for the new vehicles to have the high-tech plates, the existing vehicles will be given sufficient time to get the plates installed.
In response to tenders invited for the job, the administration had finalised the lowest bidder to implement the project. Sources in the Chandigarh Administration said the company would be allowed to open its outlets in the city to install HSRP's on vehicles registered with the RLA of the Chandigarh Administration.
On procuring the HSRP , a vehicle owner would have to ensure that the vendor issues him two copies of the delivery document, one of which is for his own record. He would then have to bring a representative of the vendor to the RLA office for fastening of the registration plate and affixing the Third Registration Plate (self-destructive sticker) on his vehicle.
