Home delivery & fitment of hi-tech plates kicked off in Delhi | Delhi News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Doorstep delivery and fitting of high security registration plates (HSRP) and colour-coded fuel stickers for vehicles began in the capital on Sunday, a week after online booking for the same had resumed.
A senior official of Rosmerta Safety Systems Private Limited — one of the three HSRP manufacturers in the city — said by 5pm on Sunday, doorstep delivery of HSRP and fuel stickers were carried out for 275 vehicles and a total of 349 scheduled fitments were expected to be completed by 8pm.
Of the 349 orders for doorstep delivery, 336 were for HSRP and 13 for fuel stickers. For doorstep delivery of HSRP, vehicle owners have to pay an extra amount of Rs 125 for two-wheelers and Rs 250 for four wheelers.
“Since November 1, over 17,000 bookings have been received, of which, 2,500 are for home delivery,” the official claimed. To ensure there are no technical snags, a cap of 500 fitments a day have been put in place. “We will gradually increase the number of orders to 2,000 per day in the second phase and up to 5,000 a day by the third phase,” he added.
“The trial is now complete and apart from some initial hiccups, each one of our personnel managed to affix HSRPs in at least six vehicles a day,” he said, adding that at the moment 50 fitters have been deployed to carry out doorstep delivery. The number is expected to be increased in the future. The official claimed that HSRPs are being delivered within seven days despite initial challenges.
Last month, state transport minister Kailash Gahlot had directed for halting the online bookings after complaints were received from vehicle owners about delays in getting HSRP and fuel stickers affixed. The facility restarted from November 1, along with the facility of doorstep delivery in some parts of the city.
Slots for fitment of HSRP and fuel stickers can be booked through www.siam.in, which will redirect the vehicle owner to the respective HSRP manufacturer’s website. After the booking, vehicle owners will get a real-time update of each stage of the processing through SMS and will be notified at least two days prior to the date of delivery.
There are approximately 30 lakhs existing vehicles, including 16 lakh two-wheelers, 12 lakh four-wheelers and two lakh commercial vehicles that are required to be affixed with HSRP.
