De-register all diesel vehicles that are over 10 years old : National Green Tribunal (NGT)
Jul 19, 2016

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has ordered Road Transport Offices (RTO) in Delhi to de-register all diesel vehicles that are over 10 years old and directed it to share data of the vehicles that will be de-registered.

The tribunal’s chairperson, Justice Swatanter Kumar, ordered the RTOs of the Transport Department that after de-registration, it should issue a public notice and submit the list of such vehicles to the Delhi Traffic Police.

The court said that as per the report submitted by the expert committee, the ambient air quality in the Capital during the implementation of the odd-even scheme was found to be worse than when it was not in force.

“This itself indicates that old diesel vehicles contribute majorly to air pollution and therefore they must be stopped from plying,” the court maintained.
