Providing relief to vehicle owners for getting affixed high-security registration plates (HSRPs), the SAS Nagar administration on Tuesday shifted back its counters for submission of forms from Phase 6 to Phase 8 bus stand. Now, vehicle owners can submit their fee and also get the HSRPs affixed on their vehicles at Phase 8 only.

In April, the administration had opened four counters in the building of the soil conservation department in Phase 6, but the department asked them to vacate the place as they were facing problems regarding parking space. Also, vehicle owners were facing a lot of problems in Phase 6 due to parking space and long queues.

Speaking to HT, Arjun Singh, zonal business head, Agros Impex Private Limited, the company assigned the contract, said now two new counters one for women and other for senior citizens would be opened at Phase 8.

“Vehicle owners can submit their fee and get the HSRPs affixed on their vehicles at the fee counters. We will start operations from June 26,” he said.

Till now, vehicle owners had to make a trip to the Phase-8 bus stand to get the HSRP affixed after submitting their fee in Phase 6. The district transport office, SAS Nagar, has started affixing HSRPs of PB-65Y series. However, the authorities have not issued any directions to the police for challaning vehicles without these plates.

District transport officer Karan Singh said awareness drives were being conducted through different mediums such as advertisements and road-safety drives with the help of traffic police. “People should take the initiative for getting affixed HSRPs on their vehicles. We will be completing the task by August for new series, as per the deadline given by the Supreme Court,” Singh said.
