New Delhi: The Environment Pollution Control Authority told the Supreme Court on Monday that vehicles running on hydrogen and CNG mixed fuel and having colour-coded stickers to identify polluting automobiles would help in tackling air pollution.

The EPCA told a bench of Justices Madan B. Lokur and Deepak Gupta that colour-coded stickers, as used in Paris, would be more effective then having “odd-even” vehicle rotation scheme in Delhi and it would also help in identifying older vehicles.

Advocate Aparajita Singh, assisting the court as an amicus curiae, said there should be different coloured stickers for petrol and diesel vehicles according to the EPCA suggestions.

The counsel for Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers termed this a “good idea” and said even the Centre has proposed to issue green number plates for electric vehicles.

Asked by the bench about the cost of having these stickers and the agency responsible for implementing the project, EPCA said it would hold deliberations with the concerned authorities and would get back to the court.
