Early Times Report

JAMMU, Aug 25: Contrary to the belief that High Security Registration Plates (HSRP) fitted in the vehicles could help the law enforcement agencies to keep track of stolen or lost vehicles, such plates have no such property and are not more than standardized number plates.
Few days back, under the jurisdiction of Gandhi Nagar police station, Jammu and Kashmir police had busted an inter-state gang of thieves with the arrest of four persons including an agent working at Regional Transport Office and some technical staff along with five stolen vehicles including a gypsy of Police department.
But the HSRP fitted in the vehicles had not helped the police to track down them while the human intelligence and other network of police had helped to track down the stolen vehicles.
Talking to Early Times, Superintendent of Police Jammu (South) Vinay Sharma said that the HSRP had not helped them but police used other sources to track down the vehicles.
Sources said that when the order of fitting HSRP in all the vehicles was issued, it was claimed, "The HSRP helps in keeping track of the vehicle, and makes it easier to trace a lost or stolen vehicle". Though HSRPs have been fitted in majority of vehicles but whenever some vehicle was stolen, the HSRP didn't help.
Chairman of All J&K Transport Welfare Association Tirlochan Singh Wazir said that the HSRP have no such property to track down the stolen vehicle. "An year back, one Innova taxi was stolen from Railway Station and had HSRP but so far it has not been found", Wazir said, adding that the Transport department had recently proposed to install GPS in all vehicles but transporters strongly resented it. "When their HSRP has been failed to track vehicles then how we accept that GPS will be helpful in tracking the vehicles if lost", Wazir said.
Sources said that HSRP has only helped in making all the registration plates uniform and nothing else. "The hologram in the HSRP has details of the vehicle but it cannot be tracked", sources said.
Joint Transport Commissioner Guumukh Singh said that HSRP has no property of keeping track of the vehicle but the government has another proposal of installing Vehicle Location Tracking System (VLTS) in all vehicles, which would help to track the vehicles.
An official pleading anonymity said that if HSRP fitted vbehciles are not tracked then what type of security these are providing . If these are simple number plates then why rupees 400 is charged from customer. An enquiry should be ordered , he said.
