NGT refuses to lift ban on 10-year-old diesel vehicles in Delhi-NCR
| Thursday | 14th September, 2017
The Tribunal observed that emissions from diesel vehicles are carcinogenic in nature and that one diesel vehicle causes pollution equivalent to 24 petrol vehicles or otherwise 40 CNG vehicles.
The National Green Tribunal on Thursday dismissed the Centre’s application seeking modification in its earlier order banning 10-year-old diesel vehicles in Delhi-NCR.
The NGT panel had issued an order last year directing the Delhi RTO to deregister all diesel vehicles operating in the city that are over 10 years old.
