What is high security registration plate (HSRP)
High security registration plates are made up aluminium and are affixed using at least two non-reusable snap-on locks. The plate comprises hot-stamped chromium-based 20 mm X 20 mm hologram of Ashoka Chakra in blue colour on the top left corner. At the bottom left corner is a 10-digit permanent identification number (PIN) that is laser branded on the reflective sheeting. HSRP also includes a hot stamped film applied on the numerals and letters bearing the inscription “INDIA” at a 45-degree angle. Once affixed, the unique high security registration plate is electronically linked to the vehicle.
