The Supreme Court on Monday approved a proposal by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) to have hologram-based coloured stickers on vehicles, indicating the nature of the fuel.

The MoRTH told a bench headed by Justice M B Lokur that hologram-based sticker of light-blue colour will be used for petrol and CNG-run vehicles while similar sticker of orange colour would be placed on diesel vehicles.

The bench also comprising Justices S Abdul Nazeer and Deepak Gupta asked the ministry to implement the use of coloured stickers on vehicles plying in Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR) by September 30.

The apex court also asked Additional Solicitor General A N S Nadkarni, who was representing the MoRTH, to consider having green number plates for electric and hybrid vehicles.

Nadkarni told the bench that the ministry would look into it and take a decision soon.

Advocate Aparajita Singh, appearing as amicus curiae in the air pollution matter, had earlier suggested to the bench that colour-coded stickers should be used to identify the nature of fuel in the vehicle.
