The Delhi Transport Department on Tuesday started a drive to check vehicles for HSRP (high-security number plate) and colour-coded fuel-type stickers. Reports suggest that well over 200 vehicles have been fined over non-compliance with the rules on HSRP and fuel stickers. Vehicles found without these can be fined Rs 10,000, which is compoundable to Rs 5,500 under the amended Motor Vehicle Act.

The mandatory installation of HSRP and fuel-type stickers had been in talks since before the pandemic broke out, but the government announced in October that these have been mandatory and warned of fining violators.

The department is also facilitating home delivery service for HSRPs and colour-coded stickers in select cities, including Lucknow, Ghaziabad, Noida, and Greater Noida.
