The Supreme Court today sought the response from five states on a contempt plea alleging non- compliance of order related to ensuring high-security registration plates for all vehicles.

The apex court had in 2012 asked several states and Union Territories to ensure high-security registration plates (HSRP) for all vehicles by June 15 that year or face contempt of court proceedings.

A bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justices Adarsh Goel and D Y Chandrachud issued the notice to Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh and sought their replies in four weeks.

The apex court had in 2012 said that installation of HSRP is the statutory command which is not only in the interest of the security of the State, but also serves a much larger public interest.

“Therefore, it is not only desirable but mandatory, for every state to comply with the statutory provisions/orders of this court in terms of Article 129 of the Constitution of India, 1950,” the apex court had said in its order.
