There have been few update regarding the number plates for the vehicles having BS 6 engines.
Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has mandated a strip of green colour of one centemeter width on top of the existing sticker carrying details of registration for BS-VI vehicles of any fuel type i.e. for petrol or CNG which have a light blue colour sticker and a diesel vehicle which is of orange colour. These stickers will now have a green strip of one centemetre on top for BS VI vehicles, as mandated.
The green label, which is meant to denote the environment friendly credentials of BS-VI complying vehicles to easily distinguish them from their more polluting vehicular counterparts on road, comes as the latest amendment to the Motor Vehicles.
The BS-VI emission standards, which have been mandated w.e.f. 1st April, 2020, 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.
