As per the reports from Livehindustan, Delhi government is planning to bring back the odd even rule for traffic. Livehindustan said that AAP government has already asked commuters to get colour-coded fuel stickers for their vehicles.
Pollution level of Delhi is increasing day by day. The quality of air is decreasing in the national capital. In an interview with Reuters, Gopal Rai, Delhi’s environment minister, said, “If air pollution levels stay high, we will look at new measures like the odd-even (vehicle) system.”Private vehicles can be driven on the road only on the alternative days. Odd even number depends on the last digit of their number plate.
On Friday a notice came by the Transport department which said, that chromium-based hologram fuel stickers-blue for petrol and CNG and orange for diesel were mandatory by the Supreme Court. This rule was under the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 for all the private vehicles in Delhi. The notice stated that, “The owners of old vehicles are advised to approach dealers concerned for affixing Chromium based hologram stickers on the windshield of their vehicles depending on the relevant class of fuel.”
A fine of ₹10,000, compoundable to ₹5,500 will be imposed on the vehicles without the stickers. A transport department officer told news agency PTI, “We are only increasing awareness about these stickers and no enforcement drive is planned in near future.”
