The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued an SO 1979 (E)  dated June 5, 2020, mandating a strip of green colour.

The strip is of 1 cm width and it will be placed on top of the existing sticker carrying details of registration for BS-VI vehicles of any fuel type 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 1 cm on top for BS-VI, as mandated.

The BS-VI emission standards, which have been mandated w.e.f. April 1, 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.
