Old diesel vehicle to ply till July 13: NGT


New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has extended the stay on the order banning 10 year old diesel vehicle in Delhi till July 13. The NGT had earlier extended its stay order banning 10 year old diesel vehicle from Delhi road till May 25.

Noting that diesel is prime source of air pollution in Delhi, the Tribunal on April 7 had held that all diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old will not be permitted to ply in Delhi-NCR.

Earlier, the NGT had stayed its order for two weeks to impound diesel vehicles, heavy or light, plying in the capital for more than 10 years.
