- Hologram based colour-coded stickers for easy identification of petrol, hybrid, electric, diesel or BS-VI compliant cars
- Petrol and CNG cars to get blue stickers; orange stickers for diesel cars
- Stickers to also mention the year of manufacture
The Supreme Court has approved the plan for hologram based colour-coded stickers for cars in Delhi-NCR. The windshield stickers will help in easy identification of the nature of the vehicle – petrol, hybrid, electric, diesel or BS-VI compliant. This will mean that petrol and CNG cars will get blue stickers while orange stickers will be used for diesel cars. Reports indicate that the court has asked the ministry to consider having green plates for electric and hybrid vehicles.
The stickers will also mention the year of manufacture to help the authorities to spot the vehicles that are not allowed to enter the city. Currently, diesel vehicles upward of 10 years are not allowed to enter the city while petrol ones over 15 years are not allowed to ply on city roads. The ministry had also proposed to use the number plates with a green background for easy identification of ICE (internal combustion engine) cars.
The move is expected to help the authorities tackle air-pollution issues in an effective manner.
