Featuring a unique seven-digit laser code, a chakra hologram to prevent counterfeiting, a self destructive sticker with engine and chassis number of your car. “IND” inscribed in the color blue. India will be inscribed at a 45 degree angle in hot stamping foil across all letters and numbers on the plate. The HSRP plates also feature a non-removable snap on lock and if in any case somehow removed then also it will remain non-reusable.
