Battery operated vehicles to exhibit numbers in yellow, white on green licence plates

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

All battery-operated vehicles will have green number plates exhibiting registration marks in yellow and white for different categories, the government said today.

"All battery-operated vehicles shall now exhibit their registration mark in yellow colour on green background for vehicles and for all other cases, in white colour on green background," Ministry of Road and Highways said in a statement.

A notification to this effect was issued today, it said.

The Ministry of Road and Highways has notified amendments to Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 to this effect.

It had invited objections and suggestions from general public on these in May last.

The purpose behind distinctive number plates is their easy identification for preferential treatment in parking, free entry in congested zones besides other proposed benefits like concessional toll, road has said earlier.
