Explained: New Colour-coded stickers on Mumbai vehicles

In a bid to limit the vehicular movement and avoid traffic jams amid the COVID-19 curbs, Mumbai police have directed that vehicles engaged in emergency and essential services will have to sport colour-coded stickers, city police commissioner said.

Which are different colour-coded stickers?

In a video, Hemant Nagrale, Police Commissioner informed that a self-sticking colour-coded policy will be implemented in three colours- red, green and yellow.

What each colour means?

Red stickers have to be pasted on vehicles carrying doctors, nurses, medical staff, medicines, ambulances, test kits and all medical equipment.

Vehicles transporting essential food items like vegetables, grocery, dairy products, fruits, bakery items and others would bear green stickers.

Yellow stickers would be used by the rest of vehicles engaged in providing essential services like government employees in BMC, BEST, MTNL and the media among others.

Where stickers will be provided?

The stickers, which should be six-inch circles, will be made available at ‘nakabandi’ points and toll nakas for free, Mr. Nagrale said, adding that people found misusing the stickers will be strictly prosecuted.

“If you fall under these categories, please fix the sticker on your vehicle and come out on the road,” he said.
