New Delhi: The government-certified stickers for four-wheeled gas-powered vehicles to enable their plying during the implementation of the odd-even scheme will be available only at one place in the city from Wednesday.
“From Wednesday, these stickers will be available only at CGO complex on Lodhi Road,” Transport Minister Gopal Rai said at a press conference on Tuesday.
Till Tuesday, the stickers for low-emission cars run on compressed natural gas – exempted from the odd-even scheme – were available at 95 CNG filling stations in Delhi and 19 such stations in the national capital region.
So far, 95 lakh stickers have been sold. These stickers have a special logo that can be detected with the help of an instrument.
The move came after reports that the CNG stickers were pasted on petrol vehicles by charging some money.
The Transport Minister told reporters that in a sting operation by a news channel it was found that a person identified as Deepak Sen — a staff at Vivek Vihar CNG station in east Delhi — had taken Rs 2,800 and pasted the sticker on a petrol car.
Briefing about the fourth day of odd-even scheme, Rai said that Delhiites by and large complied with the rules by driving odd-numbered cars which resulted in smooth traffic movement on Tuesday.
