Transport Minister Announces Three-Month Extension of HSRP Installation, Citing Limited Installations and Industry Challenges
In a significant move, the Karnataka government has decided to extend the deadline for the compulsory installation of High-Security Registration Plates on all vehicles by an additional three months, pushing the cutoff date to February 17, 2024. The decision comes in the wake of challenges faced by a section of the industry and a notable scarcity in the number of HSRP installations.
Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy confirmed that the government would soon issue an official order formalizing the extension. The initial deadline, set for November 17, 2023, raised concerns among vehicle owners and industry stakeholders, prompting the government to reevaluate the timeline.
The move to extend the deadline reflects a pragmatic approach by the Karnataka government, considering the current pace of HSR Plates installations. The decision aims to provide a more realistic timeframe for vehicle owners to comply with the mandatory requirement.
However, the announcement has not been without its share of controversy. A section of the industry has opposed the compulsory installation of HSR Plates, citing various challenges and concerns. This opposition has led to legal action, with the matter currently under consideration in the High Court of Karnataka.
The High Court challenge adds a legal dimension to the already contentious issue, as industry representatives seek to address their reservations through the judicial system. The court’s decision will undoubtedly have implications for the enforcement and implementation of the HSR Plates mandate in the state.
The extension of the deadline, coupled with the legal challenge, underscores the complexity surrounding the HSR Plates installation initiative in Karnataka. As the government grapples with balancing compliance requirements and industry concerns, vehicle owners and stakeholders eagerly await further developments in this ongoing saga.
