In a bid to promote electric vehicles (e-vehicles) in India, Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has approved green license plates having white fonts for private e-vehicles and yellow for taxis.

The main purpose behind the unique green number plates is easy identification of electric vehicles (e-vehicles) for preferential treatment in parking, free entry in congested zones besides other proposed benefits like concessional toll.

MoRTH is also contemplating permitting youth in the age group of 16-18 years to drive e-scooters, which are gearless and this will lead to a big demand for e-scooters.
