After the CH-01-AG series, Registering and Licensing Authority (RLA) has begun the CH-01-AF series for affixing High-Security Registration Plates (HSRP).Starting from Monday, the RLA will set up a one-month deadline for vehicles owners of AF series to affix the HSRPs.

Residents can apply for HSRPs at the RLA’s Sector 17 office and its sub-offices in Sector 42 and the Industrial Area with a written request detailing the vehicle’s chassis number, engine number and the model, along with a copy of the vehicle’s registration certificate and insurance.

Saturday was the last date for affixing the HSRP for CH-01-AG series.

Officials said the RLA would soon write to the UT traffic police to initiate the process for challaning vehicle owners of AG series without an HSRP.

With its one-month-one-series deadline policy, the RLA has so far covered eight series since October last year.

However, the department has failed to launch the multiple-series-per-month to accelerate the process of HSRP affixation.

Sources said with the deadline for one-month-per-series looming near, the RLA stood no chance of meeting the Supreme Court’s deadline of April 2015 for completing the target of installing HSRPs over seven lakh-old registered vehicles in Chandigarh.
