This blog will give you all the know-how about number plates, the various rules regarding their size, fonts, positioning, etc depending on your vehicle.
First, let us understand what number plates are and what are the different kinds. (include HSNP)
If you own your own private vehicle be it a two wheeler or a car, then you will have black letters and numbers on a white background. If you own a commercial vehicle, then black letters on yellow background will be your number plate colours.
There is also a third category of number plates called high security number plate or HSNP. This category of plates came into existence in 2005 after the amendment to the Central Motor Vehicles Rules,1989. This IND high security number is found at RTO’s registered number plates. You have obtained the license plate legally, then a chromium plated hologram is also attached above it, which can’t be removed. The principal characteristic of the HSNP plate is its safety features. It is tamper proof, and has a snap lock system which cannot be removed.
b) Each category of vehicle shall have a number plate type and instructions will be provided on the letters to be incorporated.
