New Delhi: National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Monday directed Delhi RTO to de-register all diesel vehicles over 10 years old in the Delhi-NCR region.
The NGT also directed the Delhi RTO to provide the list of deregistered vehicles to the Traffic Police in the Delhi-NCR region. Moreover, the Delhi RTO has been ordered to publish public notice for the NGT order.
In its order, the NGT said Delhi’s odd-even scheme hardly improved the Delhi-NCR region’s air quality. Moreover, the number of impounded old diesel vehicles has increased drastically and have accepted the fact that diesel vehicles pollute more than other sources.
Moreover, various authorities informed of “hardly any success” to reduce pollution from old diesel vehicle.
