Soon, incidents of vehicle thefts will be a thing of the past. This is because the process of installing high security number plates will be initiated in the district in the next 10 days.

The move will help decrease cases of vehicle theft in the city.

While the number plates will be installed only in the new cars, older vehicles will be covered at a later stage, said officials of the district transport department.

The project has already been initiated at Rewari, Panchkula, Ambala, Yamunanagar, Kalka and Bhiwani.

Gurgaon and Faridabad will be covered in the second phase of the project.

The high security number plates would also help the police keep a tab on cases of vehicle theft, which register a rise of 11-12% every year. Earlier, the project had been hanging fire for the last many years.

In October 2011, the Supreme Court had imposed a fine of R50,000 on the Haryana government for disobeying its direction regarding implementation of high-security registration plates (HSRP) for motor vehicles. In 2010, nearly 2,331 cases of vehicle theft were registered in the city and in 2011, as many as 2,595 cases were reported till December 10.
