11 companies bid for high security licence plates

With eleven companies bidding for the contract for installing high-security registration plates (HSRP) on the vehicles in the capital, the Delhi transport department has claimed the process of installing the high-security licence plates will be completed by March 31.

The Supreme Court had set a deadline of March 31 for the Delhi government to install the high-security plates on all the vehicles after the city government appealed for an extension of the deadline from December 31.

“Eleven companies have shown interest. The process has been expedited and we are confident that it will be completed within the deadline,” said PK Gupta, special commissioner, transport.

The Apex Court has ordered all state governments to install the new plates in a time-bound manner.

The Delhi government had earlier assigned the task to Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System.
However, DIMTS sub-tendered the procurement of the high security registration plates contrary to the Supreme Court's recommendation of a single-vendor process.

The transport department has now decided to execute the project on its own and opened tenders earlier this month.

HSRP consists of a chromium-based hologram, a self-destructive sticker with the engine, a chassis number and a hologram, a unique serial number etched with laser and a non-removable and non-reusable snap lock.
