New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday rejected the plea filed by an individual against National Green Tribunal (NGT) order imposing a ban on 10 year old diesel vehicle in Delhi.

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.

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.
