Moving forward with the environmental friendly electrical vehicles, the government said that all battery-operated vehicles would exhibit registrations in green license number plates in yellow and white markings based on different categories.
In a statement on Friday, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said, "All battery-operated vehicles shall now exhibit their registration mark in yellow colour on green background for transport vehicles and for all other cases, in white colour on the green background." A notification regarding the same was issued.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has notified amendments to Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 to this effect.
In May last year, it had invited objections and suggestions from the general public on these. The intent behind distinctive number plates is to easily identify vehicles for preferential treatment in parking, free entry in congested zones besides and other proposed benefits like concessional toll, road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari had said earlier.
