The Centre has mandated a distinct coloured band as the number plate sticker for BS-VI four-wheeler vehicles.
Accordingly, a green strip of 1 cm thickness has been mandated by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways for “BS 6 vehicles for sticker of registration details being stuck on windshields of 4 wheelers”.
“Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued an S.O. 1979 (E) dated 5th June 2020 mandating a strip of green colour of 1 cm width on top of the existing sticker carrying details of registration for BS-VI vehicles of any fuel type,” the ministry said in a statement.
Currently, petrol or CNG have a light blue sticker and diesel fuelled vehicle sport orange colour.
“These stickers will now have a green strip of 1 cm on top for BS VI, as mandated,” the ministry said.
The BS-VI emission standards were enforced since 1 April 2020. These provide for stricter and cleaner emission norms and are at par with the emission standards being followed across the world.
“Such distinct identification of vehicles for such emissions standard as is also being followed in other countries had been requested to the Government and brought-forth by the Government,” the ministry said.
