The MoRTH told a Bench led by Justice Madan 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 date of registration of the vehicle would also be printed on these stickers, the Ministry told the court. 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 Supreme 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. Mr. Nadkarni told the Bench that the Ministry would look into it and take a decision soon. These issues had cropped up when the court was hearing a petition on air pollution in Delhi-NCR.
