High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) has now become mandatory in almost all states. Its purpose is to increase vehicle safety and streamline the registration process. HSRP test will start soon for all vehicles in Uttar Pradesh also. Transport Commissioner has asked RTOs and SRTOs to speed up the vehicle testing process for HSRP. The biggest challenge in this is that of two-wheelers. According to reports, there are more than 2 crore two-wheelers in the state which still do not have HSRP number plates. In UP, a fine of Rs 5000 can be imposed on vehicles without HSRP.
