[New Delhi,]NGT Finally Hammers decade-old diesel vehicles in National Capital
NGT Said De-register over decade-old diesel vehicles in Delhi
The National Green Tribunal today directed the Regional Transport Office (RTO) in Delhi to de-register with immediate effect all diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old.
The green panel said the RTO, after de-registration, will issue public notice in this regard and supply the list of such vehicles to Delhi Traffic Police which will take appropriate steps in consonance with directions of tribunal.
“We hereby direct RTO, Delhi to deregister all diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old,” a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said.
The tribunal passed the order after noting submissions of Delhi Police which said that it has made continuous attempts to stop vehicles which were more than 10 years old from plying on the roads of the national capital.
“But they have hardly met any success,” the bench noted.
During the last hearing, the tribunal had indicated de-registration of 10 years old diesel vehicles after it was told by the counsel for Delhi government that over 3,000 such vehicles were impounded in last one year.
The NGT had taken Delhi government to task for its failure to implement its order banning such vehicles from plying on the roads here.
The NGT had also slammed the government over incidents of waste burning and dust pollution in the national capital.
It had also asked Delhi government and other authorities to create awareness about air pollution caused by vehicular emissions and burning of municipal solid waste and issue advertisements on the lines of the odd-even scheme.
