BSVI vehicles to be distinguished by green stickering on number plate

Effective from October 1, 2020, all BSVI compliant vehicles in the country will have to carry a 1cm green sticker. This will display registration details of the vehicle and will have to be placed on top of the third tamper-proof, high security registration plates.

These high-security number plates are stuck on the car's windscreen and have also been incorporated into the physical plates of vehicles. These plates use a chromium hologram that is tamper-proof and stuck on by hot stamping. A similar hologram is also placed on the third plate stuck to the windscreen.

This sticker also adds additional information such as the engine number, chassis number, the issuing RTO, registration details and a 10-digit pin. Further, the hologram for diesel vehicles is orange while it is blue for petrol/CNG vehicles.

The HSRP regulations were passed in 2018, and have been a fixture on Indian cars since April 2019. The green label comes as the latest amendment to the Motor Vehicles (High-Security Registration Plates) order, 2018.

The green label is meant to denote BSVI vehicles' eco-friendly credentials, and easily distinguish them from more polluting vehicles on the road.
