Travelling in Delhi by one’s own vehicle is often a chore. With all the hassles, road traffic and jams, it is usually advisable to commute by public transport. However, Delhi government aims to keep a check on all those who do travel by their own means of transport, by implementing HSRP (High Security Registration Plate) license plates and colour coded fuel stickers to identify vehicles.
Why is it needed?
The need for the HSRP license plates and the colour coded fuel stickers emerges from the constantly growing number of personal means of transport. With so many people opting to purchase cars and bikes, keeping a check on them is nothing short of a major task. With the HSRPs, the Delhi Government aims to track vehicles that will help in finding stolen vehicles. The HSRPs can be tracked, and so more secure.
The colour coded fuel stickers will help identify which vehicles use what kind of fuels and thereby get an idea of the air pollution that is being caused. A few years back, the odd-even rule was implemented to tackle the same. The move to have stickers on cars could point towards something similar to that idea.
Whom will it benefit?
The Delhi Government aims to provide a safer travel experience for those using their own cars and bikes. It will make sure that all vehicles are registered and accounted for by the government while also helping the owner track their cars in case of theft.
To register your vehicle with the HSRPs, all you have to do is visit the nearest RTO and get a new license plate. The move has been planned for U.P, NCR, Rajasthan and Haryana. 4-Wheelers in all these areas should have the number plates or the owners could even be fined.
As of now, we are yet so see how this change will affect traffic and related issues.
