The Registering and Licensing Authority office of Chamba has taken a lead in introducing the SMS for the speedy disposal of high-security registration plates (HSRPs) to owners of motor vehicles.

SDM Rohit Rathour said the details of owners of motor vehicles had been fed into the computer and accordingly the intimation about obtaining number plates was being given to them by sending SMSes on their mobile phones.
