Amid worsening air quality in the city, the Delhi government has asked the motorists to get colour-coded fuel stickers for their vehicles. According to a report from PTI, the Delhi Transport Department has urged vehicle owners to approach concerned dealers for affixing colour-coded fuel stickers on the windshield, depending on the class of fuel. The display of chromium-based hologram stickers on all vehicles registered in NCT of Delhi are mandatory according to Supreme Court order and the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, said a notice issued by the department on Friday.
