Karnataka extends date to replace High-Security Registration Plates (HSRP)


BM Bureau, Feb 14 : The last date to replace your old number plates with High-Security Registration Plates (HSRP) has been reportedly extended by the Karnataka Government. State Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy has announced that the deadline is being extended by three months. 

In August 2023, the State Government issued a notification mandating the installation of HSRP before November 17, subsequently extending the deadline by three months to February 17 to allow for compliance. 

Why this extension? As per the report, over 2 crore vehicles were registered before April 1, 2019. As per the minister, over 18 lakh (18,32,787) vehicles have got the new HSRP number plates. It means only 9.16 per cent of the vehicles have gone for number plate change. As the February 17 deadline neared, many people tried to order the new number plate but encountered issues in scheduling High-Security Registration Plates (HSRPs) appointments due to server slowdowns and various technical glitches. Netizens on social media sites urged the authorities to extend the deadline given the website issues.
