'Extension Of HSRP Installation Deadline Only As Directed By Karnataka HC': Govt Clarifies

(MENAFN- AsiaNet News) The Karnataka High Court is set to hear a crucial petition on Wednesday regarding the installation of High-Security Registration Plates (HSRP) for older vehicles. The state transport department has stated that any decision to extend the deadline for HSRP installation will depend on the High Court's directive.

The central government has mandated that all vehicles registered before April 2019 must be fitted with HSRP. In Karnataka, this affects over 1.5 crore vehicles, but so far, only 35 to 40 lakh vehicles have complied with the requirement. The deadline for HSRP implementation has already been postponed three times, with the most recent deadline being May 31.

Due to the ongoing petition in the High Court, the Transport and Police Departments have been instructed not to take any action against vehicles that have not yet adopted HSRP until June 12. The court hearing on June 12 will be pivotal in determining whether further extensions will be granted.

If the High Court permits, the authorities may start imposing fines of up to Rs 1,000 on vehicles without HSRP starting Thursday.
