Colour-coded stickers to indicate fuel type will be mandatory in India soon
A bench of the Supreme Court has ruled that the Indian government start issuing stickers for all private as well as commercial vehicles. The SC bench comprising justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak has instructed that these stickers should be of different colours to indicate the type of fuel to be used in a vehicle. As per the ruling, there should be stickers to identify vehicles running on diesel, petrol, and CNG.
There will be a light blue sticker for petrol-fuelled vehicles and an orange one for those running on diesel. The Supreme Court bench has also directed the ministry of road transport and highways (MORTH) to decide on new holograms for commercial vehicles running on CNG. The MORTH has also been asked to issue advertisements for consumers to know where they can avail their stickers from and the process and proof required for the same.
This same process was to begin in Delhi and surrounding NCR from October 2 but that has not yet begun. Meanwhile, Toyota Kirloskar Motor has represented to the government that hybrid electric vehicles that do not cause as much pollution as conventionally fuelled vehicles should be exempted from applying the same stickers as the latter.
