Nice to know that. But what about the govt owned vehicles. Has anyone observed the dumping trucks, old DTC busses, govt ambulances?

I believe, govt should first perform such activities with themselves then point fingers on the citizens.

What???
You want an annual ritual where
- Either you pay bribe, OR,
- You are sent back to workshop and asked to come again with objections raised on inconsequential things.

It was ment towards the car itself rather. I ment to say that a 15 year old Maruti 800 will surely produce less smoke and emissions than a brand new 1.6L fair or a 2L Tata car.

They should first remove all the Autos that pollute the air and our ears.

I can think of a workaround for those amongst us who are emotionally attached to our cars = register it in a smaller town. My Jeep wears a Nasik registration and that town isn't getting this rule for a long time to come. The rurals would go ballistic!

This policy should be implemented first for commercial vehicles, including rickshaws. Older trucks & tempos aren't only the worst pollutants, but most are maintained in such a shabby manner that the safety of other road users is at stake.

Vintage cars are generally exempt from such rules.

I do support this rule which, by the way, has nothing to do with the road worthiness. These import restrictions are in place only to protect the domestic auto industry.

Someone just do this in Pune! We need the roads. We know we drive on them but we just can't get to see them. We can only feel them...sometimes. With so much construction activity and the city spreading far and wide, you can only see trucks loaded with stuff for construction activity or water tankers!

. They need to test their own vehicles of the road worthiness. This problem is not only in Delhi, it is in each and every city. The BBMP vehicles which are used to clean dustbins and lorries carrying the sand are most dangerous as they emit smoke to maximum. Are these road worthy? Govt has to ponder on this first then make the law. I understand that these are contracted vehicles but will these contracters agree to this law?
