Registration Of New Vehicles has been Banned Across India

Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has released a notification regarding registration of new vehicles by the issuance of Certification of Registration has been blocked for all classes of motor vehicles and this has come under effect since May 2, 2019.
This has been marked as the deadline for integrating High-Security Registration Plates (HSRP) with the ‘Vahan’ application.

The National Informatics Centre (NIC) has carried forward the rule of not allowing access to the application ‘Vahan’, which allows one to register their vehicle. 

Consequently, registration certificates cannot be issued for new vehicles in any state, post-Thursday, except Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, as these states use their own software instead of Vahan.

MoRTH has mandated all the vehicle manufacturers to install these HSRPs into the vehicle before sale of the vehicle, the price of which will be included in the price of the vehicle.  The idea is to ensure nationwide uniformity in licence plate prices and bring down the cost for the customer, who has to spend anywhere between Rs 800 to Rs 40,000 for them. 

This does not mean that the vehicles bought before the said date cannot install HSRP into their vehicles. As suggested by the Transport Ministry, authorised vendors could provide HSRPs to older vehicles, if the state government agrees to it.

Ministry of Road Transport & Highways have taken this step to curb  vehicle theft and enable easier tracking of lost and stolen vehicles. 

The high security registration plates come with several security features. These plates are made up of aluminium and are wrapped in reflective tapes. To discourage counterfeiting, a chromium-based hologram is hot-stamped with self-destructive feature, containing the image of Ashoka Chakra in blue. 

The 10-digit print is be laser branded on the botton of the plate, with ‘India’ inscribed on it.

To ensure they aren’t stolen, the plates are fixed with tamper-proof, non-removable, non-reusable snap locks, which will break on any attempt to remove the plates. This will engage the security against fraud and theft of cars. 

The government states that this step is likely to improve the coverage of HSRP on vehicles, while ensuring its quality by the vehicle manufacturers. The HSRP helps in keeping track of the vehicle, and makes it easier to trace a lost or stolen vehicle.
