Srinagar- Two days after Transport Commissioner cautioned of stern action over the affixation of mandatory High Security Registration Plates (HSRP) in all the vehicles, the Jammu and Kashmir police on Saturday gave a ‘final reminder’ to the drivers to get the same done by June 15

“This is Final Reminder by Transport/Police/Traffic departments. Mandatory Affixation of HSRP to be done by 15th June 2022 on all vehicles,” police said in a statement, adding, “Failing this all such Vehicles Without HSRP Shall be Seized & RC may also be recommended for Suspension.”

The police statement came two days after Transport Commissioner, J&K, Bhupinder Kumar reviewed the progress regarding affixation of mandatory High Security Registration Plates (HSRP) and cautioned against any laxity by the drivers.
Earlier on June 6, the Motor Vehicle Department also issued a public notice asking the vehicle owners to get HSRP affixed by June 15 to prevent their vehicles from being seized.

“It was also informed in the meeting that a large number of HSRP plates are ready and lying with the vendor and telephonic calls have also been made to the owners to affix the same in their vehicles,” an official spokesperson said Thursday.

“It was also informed that the Motor Vehicle Department is in regular touch with other law enforcement agencies like Jammu and Kashmir Police and Jammu and Kashmir Traffic Police, who are also ensuring the implementation of the said scheme,” he added.
