Odisha State Transport Authority incurs the anger of car owners by establishing the HSRP deadline

by Subhechcha Ganguly

The High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) will be strictly enforced starting on January 15 for automobiles with registration numbers that end in 1, 2, 3, 4,5, and 6. This decision has angered some vehicle owners. The irate vehicle owners said that the infrastructure for assuring the installation of HSRP is still insufficient to support all of the State’s automobiles.Pictures of vehicle owners scurrying to get their HSRP are popping up everywhere, whether in Bhubaneswar or Balasore. They claimed they had to stand in line for hours in order to receive their HSRP.

The government ought to have extended the deadline in such a circumstance. Instead, consider how the deadline was established. The biggest problem for car owners is that, while the deadline for cars with registration numbers ending in 1 and 2 was December 31, the new deadline for all cars with registration numbers ending in 1, 2, 3, 4,5, and 6 is January 15. They are concerned about the Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 punishment they will have to pay for failing to attach HSRP.

“Everyone has a different job to do. Getting together in front of show rooms is likewise bad. It would have been preferable if the deadline had been extended by a few more days, according to a vehicle owner.Road safety expert Subrat Nanda accused the STA of enforcing laws like the Jizya tax, saying, “They are sending notifications from time to time that are self-contradictory.” Because they (the STA) did not research how many vehicles there are in Odisha and how many number plates need to be prepared, the issue has arisen. Therefore, at least a year should have been allowed. The fact that the deadlines for vehicles with registration numbers ending in 7 and 8 and 9 and 0 are scheduled for the end of January and the end of February, respectively, only made matters worse for the owners of those vehicles.
