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.

Student Centre cries for attention

The Panjab University (PU) Student Centre, which is the heart of the social activities of students, is crying for attention due to poor maintenance. Broken gazeboes, foul smell emanating from the stagnant water from the non-functional fountain and leftovers of food littered all around: the centre has been in a terrible state for so long.
