Online booking of High-Security Registration Plate (HSRP) and colour-coded stickers for vehicles restarted along with their doorstep delivery in some parts of east and west Delhi on Sunday, officials said.
Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot had directed officials to stop online booking last month after complaints were received from vehicle owners about delays and issues in logging into the registration portal.
"The process started smoothly and no complaints have been received so far," an official said, adding that "around 3,000 bookings are targeted every day up to Diwali".
"If the service from suppliers of HSRP and colour-coded stickers and dealers remains satisfactory, the bookings will be raised after the festival break," the official said.
Doorstep delivery has been started in some areas and these include Mayur Vihar, Patparganj, Anand Vihar, Laxmi Nagar, Janakpuri, Rajouri Garden, Punjabi Bagh and Kirti Nagar, said a spokesperson of Rosmerta Safety Systems Private Limited.
The list of doorstep delivery will updated as new areas are covered, he said.
