The Supreme Court of India made the BS6 rule mandatory from April 1, 2020, across the country. The BS4 vehicles will no longer be registered in India. However, the government has mandated a one cm green sticker, (providing registration details) in all BS6 compliant motor vehicles. The rule will come into power from October 1, 2020.
As per the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, vehicles complying with BS-VI emission norms will have to have a 1 cm green strip at the top in the third registration plate. The order was issued revising the Motor Vehicles HSRP (High-Security Registration Plates) order, 2018.
This HSRP or the third number plate will be fitted on the inside of the windshield of each newly manufactured vehicle by the manufacturers. It will also have a colour coding for the fuel used in the vehicle. The colour coding is done in order to detect polluting vehicles from the non-polluting ones.
In other recent news, TVS has revised the prices of the Scooty Pep Plus BS6 in India and now the scooter carries a starting price of Rs 52,554 ex-showroom. The company has hiked the prices of all the three variants by Rs 800 and there have been no changes done to the specifications and features of the scooter.
Mechanically the scooter is powered by an 87.8cc single-cylinder BS6-compliant fuel-injected engine for better performance and fuel economy. The engine produces 5bhp of power at 6,500 rpm and 5.8 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm. The transmission here is a CVT unit with torque sensor.
The Scooty Pep Plus gets several features such as a mobile charger, a side stand alarm, under-seat storage, etc. The BS6 models also get features like LED DRLs, telescopic forks at the front, and a mono-shock at the rear. Braking duties are handled by 110 mm drum brakes at both ends. The scooter weighs just 93 kgs and has a low seat height of 768 mm. The ground clearance is 135 mm and the fuel tank capacity is 4.2 litres.
Thoughts About The BS-VI Compliant Vehicles Green Sticker
The green stickers will actually help keep a track on the newly registered vehicles and the colour coding will distinguish the good and the bad vehicles. By this method, the damage caused to the environment by the vehicle pollutants will be less.
