My view too. Wonder what the CPCB would do with the funds collected? Install some large filters like this one perhaps : http://www.treehugger.com/gadgets/wo...und-world.html

As long as they don't waste the funds that people pay in some fancy scheme and put it to good use for making the air cleaner.

Pretty Sure... this will boil down to smaller diesel engine as well. Another way to looting tax from common man....

Interesting to see what will be the strategy of Mahindra for XUV or Scorpio. They would have done substantial investments towards 1999 cc engine, taking into account R&D, changes in Engine block, Piston sizes etc etc....

High time, TATA should launch Hexa!!!

Finally, its proved that money is above everything!! Cant believe a 1% cess is a replacement for all the pollution. And the chart shows passenger cars are just 10% of the full overload and trucks form 46%.

Is it so difficult for the NGT to seek very valid & apt solutions from the manufacturers for the betterment of the society? Very very pathetic to see the 'money has the way' attitude being entertained.

1% Environmental cess to save the environment.
Old saying proved right again ... Money speaks!! This situation is similar to the one where you (NGT) think a certain kind of food can harm your body but instead of not eating that food you buy health insurance.

The objective was very much clear since day one. They wanted to fill their kitty if not through lobbying money from auto makers then by 1% cess. Ours is becoming a brutal mercantile economy is a sense.

NGT has proposed extending the diesel ban to four more states - Rajasthan, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

This is because of the Centre's and these four state governments' inability to tackle the air pollution in their states, plus their non-compliance with the NGT's directives.

It has also directed the Centre and the state governments to declare a state of "environment emergency", if the particulate matter (pm) 2.5 and pm 10 reaches in excess of 500 and 300 micrograms respectively.

Quote:
During the emergency, the tribunal said the states must temporarily shutdown thermal power plants and close all construction activities in the affected areas.
With regards to stubble burning which has been, reasoned by many, as the major cause of air pollution, the green court asked the central and state governments to constitute committees to tackle crop burning and find out the source of pollution.
The concerned committees will then have to report to the NGT and update it about the steps being implemented.

IF the ngt and the Supreme Court, such as they are as guardians of orphaned 'public goods' like breathable air, can impose stiff/penal taxes on diesel fuel, old AND not just new diesel vehicles (whether passenger ones or commercial, with the former and not the latter getting taxed more penally) they would've done a great, market-efficiency-friendly service to Dilli-NCR and indeed most large cities in North India or even India as-a-whole. No bans, though, kindly, and no convoluted policing: just STIFF deterential taxation.

As to whetehr other 'guilty' economic agents, such as plastic recyclers or farmers etc, are more or less responsible is entirely besdies the point.

"Yes, but Aunty he did it first/more than me.....!" is just no argument. Especially not in the current outright catastrophism in Dilli NCR.

If one is imposing 'externalities' on others by using dirty diesel and dirty diesel engines one must pay for them: that is just the corollory of the 'free consumer market' logic. It will do some albeit not-enough good via-the-market over the relatively short-run, on a structural demographic basis, IRRESPECTIVE of how well and/or honestly used for public transpost, BRT, pedestrianization etc the additional penal/deterential taxes/cesses on diesel fuel and diesel pv and cv-s are.
