New Delhi, Dec 29: Odd-even scheme will start from Jan 1, 2016 but preparations to make it a grand success has already begun in Delhi.
Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) will start issuing its stickers to CNG-certified cars from Tuesday, Dec 29. All people in the national capital are requested to get the sticker for their cars.
Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai on Monday clarified that IGL stickers would be necessary to avoid any kind of police action and penalty.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has given exemption to CNG-run cars having IGL's stickers from odd-even scheme.
However, the government warned that if anyone was found using a fake or a copy of these CNG stickers, he or she will be prosecuted under section 420 of the Indian Penal Code besides imposing a heavy penalty.
"The IGL will start distributing a special logo for the CNG-run vehicles with special features and detectable by an instrument from today," the Transport minister said.
A senior official of the IGL said that there are 95 CNG filling stations in Delhi, seven station in Noida and Ghaziabad each and five in Greater Noida, adding that around five lakh CNG-vehicles are plying in the national capital.
He said that CNG-stickers will be placed on the windscreens of a car so that it is easily visible.
