More than 5000 centres in the state are currently undergoing fitting work. The efforts of the Odisha government in this regard have been appreciated by PK Banerjee, Executive Director of SIAM – Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers.

“No e-challan shall be issued, no fine shall be collected, and no penal action shall be taken against any old vehicle registered before to 1 April 2019 for plying vehicles without HSRP till 31.08.2022,” the Transport Department ordered.
Challans will thereafter be issued in accordance with the department’s last date or dateline established for each series of vehicle numbers.
If they don’t attach HSRP by September 1st, 2022, vehicles with Odisha registration marks and registration numbers ending in 1 and 2 would be subject to challan.
If the vehicle is not equipped with HSRP before the deadline, an e-challan will be issued against it and it will be subject to a punishment of either Rs. 5000 or Rs. 10,000 under Section 192 of the Motor Vehicle Act of 1988, depending on the situation.
Legal action will be taken against dealers or anyone else found to be distributing and selling HSRPS in the state without OEM authorization, according to the official directive.
