Recently India has launched new Licence plate format according to the CMV rules in which each plate assigned with a unique Permanent Consecutive Identification Number (PCIN) and a hologram system. A chromium-based hologram is put and `IND` in blue is inscribed using hot stamping foil. Almost all the states are implemented this new format called HSRP Licence plate system. At this scenario Indian traffic system needs a robust automatic License recognition system according to the new HSRP format. In this paper we proposed a robust method for automatic detection of license plate under Indian environment. For this system we use strong pre processing techniques for improving the identification accuracy.
