‘HSRP to be fixed in due time’

By Our Reporter

SHILLONG: Amid criticism about its failure to adhere to the norms on installing High Security Registration Plate (HSRP), the Shimnit Utsch has given an assurance that the company would fix HSRP in vehicles within six working days as per its agreement with the State Government.

“The HSRPs will be fixed within the stipulated six days,” Anil Khanna, Chief Operation Officer of the Indo-German company, said here on Monday.

Attributing the huge backlog of vehicles which are yet to be fitted with HSRPs to “mismanagement,” the company official said, “We had a problem of backlog for a few months, but now things will improve as the State Manager has been removed.”

Earlier, the government had warned Shimnit Utsch of scrapping the contract, which is valid for 15 years, following unsatisfactory performance of the company in installing the HSRP.

When asked about the different rates of HSRP in various states, the official said the rate is high in Meghalaya due to the less number of vehicles compared to other states.

Meghalaya became the first state in the country to implement the HSRP.
