Default NGT bans vehicles older than 15 years

In an astonishing manner the National Green Tribunal has ordered a ban on the running of both petrol and diesel vehicles older than 15 years in the National Capital of Delhi. It has ordered the RTO not to renew the registration certificates or issue new certificates to such vehicles and further not to even give fitness certificates to such vehicles. The order also states that any such vehicles found in any public areas are to be towed away, the owner of such vehicle to be fined, appropriate steps to be taken in accordance with the law, including seizure of the vehicles. The order encompasses all two, three and four wheelers, light and heavy vehicles maybe private or commercial.

This step has been taken to check the ever increasing air pollution in Delhi and furthermore the NGT has ordered the construction of cycle tracks in most parts of the city, pollution checks for all state run buses, installation of air purifiers in busy markets, crack down on open burning of plastic, leaves and other waste and parking on tarred roads.

What effect all this has, how effectively the order will be implemented and what will be the effect on the vintage vehicles running in the city remains to be seen.
