There are certain new laws that the average person must follow in 2023 as we enter the new year. On December 31, 2022, the window for installing new security systems in vehicles was closed. People who break the law now face a traffic fine between Rs 5,000 and Rs 10,000.
According to the Motor Cars Act and Central Motor Vehicle Rules, the government has made color-coded stickers and high security registration plates (HSRP) required for all vehicles. All vehicles that are registered before April 1, 2019, must now have the high security number plates and color-coded stickers, as the deadline of December 31 has passed. Vehicles without these crucial security features could face steep fines starting on January 1.
Petrol and CNG vehicles need a blue sticker, diesel vehicles need an orange sticker, electric vehicles should have a green sticker, along with the high security number plate. The cost of getting an HSRP installed ranges between Rs 600 to Rs 1100 for four-wheelers. For two-wheelers, installation cost has been fixed at Rs 365. The HSRP has been made mandatory to curb car theft as it can easily help track lost or stolen vehicles.
