Karnataka Government sets deadline for installation of high-security registration plates

In its notification, the transport department specified that people encountering difficulties in obtaining the HSRP online can contact 9036882889 or 9743056661 between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

The decision to extend the deadline is due to the limited number of motorists choosing to adopt this system. In August 2023, the Karnataka Government issued a notification requiring high-security registration plates for approximately two crore vehicles registered before April 1, 2019. The initial deadline of November 17, 2023, was extended to February 17, 2024, as the transition progress was sluggish.

The extension of the deadline was announced by Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy in the Legislative Council in Bengaluru on February 14. Responding to a demand by several legislators for an extension, the Minister had said only about 18 lakh high-security number plates had been installed in Karnataka so far.

In a statement, A.M. Yogesh, Commissioner for Transport and Road Safety, said that the public can get HSRP registration details by visiting here. Additionally, they are required to verify the scheduled HSRP fitting date, as well as the name and address of the vehicle dealer. It is emphasised that HSRPs obtained through any other website will be considered unauthorised, and only those fitted through the specified platforms will be deemed valid.
