The sudden announcement of invoices on motorists driving without high-security number plates (HSRP) and color-coded stickers has created a crisis as there is a huge demand for these new license plates with long waiting periods. We had recently reported that the government's website had crashed due to heavy traffic compared to normal. Now the Delhi High Court has recommended the state government of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to give more time to motorists to get HSRP and color-coded stickers.

A bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Talwant Sinha has suggested that the sudden announcement has caused panic among the citizens of Delhi and some people may take advantage of the situation. The court also said that in August this year, it was not an ideal time for the state government to advertise the requirement of stickers and HSRP. The court was addressing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee Chairman Anil Kumar, which accused the vehicle manufacturers of taking advantage of the situation and making more money for both HSRP and color-coded stickers.

Responding to the petition, the Delhi government told the bench that the new order had nothing to do with sticker and fixation of HSRP rate and it was only to implement the directions of the apex court. Last week, the government made an announcement about issuing invoices of Rs 5,500 to motorists driving without HSRP or color-coded stickers in the national capital.
