While taking action against increasing air pollution rate in Delhi/NCR, the Delhi government said it had canceled the registration of 40 lakh vehicles out of 1.10 cr registered vehicles present in Delhi/NCR, On Thursday. So, if you own a petrol vehicle, which is more than 15 years old and diesel vehicle which is more than 10 years old, then most likely you cannot use them to travel in Delhi/NCR.
These details were shared as the SC expressed displeasure that orders passed by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) and the apex court in 2015, prohibiting the use of such old vehicles in the Delhi-national capital region (NCR), had not yet been compiled.
“Three-and-a half-year have gone by but it appears that orders passed by the NGT and confirmed by this court are not being complied with yet. The counsel for Delhi government has been asked to advise his client to act with promptitude,” the bench said.
The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) informed a bench of Supreme court, headed by Justice Madan B Lokur that it has created social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook where citizens can write their complaints about pollution in Delhi-NCR.
