URA & HDB Release New Parking Coupons with Security Watermark Feature

Press release   •   Jun 20, 2011 15:25 +08

The URA and HDB will release new parking coupons incorporating a security watermark feature progressively from 20 June 2011. This move is to deter the forgery of parking coupons.

The Look of New Coupons

The watermark feature will be in the form of a ‘URA/HDB’ logo imprinted on the coupon. The logo is visible to the naked eye when held against bright light.

To further help the public recognize these new parking coupons, the coupons would come with an information band “COUPON WITH WATERMARK” on their lower right edge. A sample of the new parking coupon is attached in Annex A.

Use of Existing Coupons

Motorists can continue to use existing parking coupons without the watermark feature, alongside the new coupons. They do not need to exchange their existing parking coupons for new ones.

Parking coupon agents will also continue to sell the existing non-watermark coupons until their stock is depleted. Motorists can purchase these non-watermark coupons.

Purchase of New Coupons

The new parking coupons will be made available progressively. They would be available for sale in major outlets such as 7-Eleven, NTUC FairPrice, Shell, EssoMobil, etc by July 2011.

Motorists are advised to purchase URA/HDB parking coupons only from authorised parking coupon agents. For information on the new coupons, they can visit URA website at www.ura.gov.sg or HDB website at www.hdb.gov.sg. They can also call URA at 63293434 or HDB at 1800-2255432.
