This is legal, as long as the cars are used for 11 months or less. Since Hyatt/Park is a chain, I think they can rotate their fleet and side-step the law.

Now, how about we transfer the transport commissioner from Bangalore to Delhi?

While Delhi is an anomaly in terms of allowing nearby states' vehicles to run locally, TN isn't exactly in the neighborhood, is it?

So the law allows a 'Private' registered car to be used for commercial purposes for upto 11 months?

Following the Delhi Trend, Kerala has banned diesel vehicles that are more than 10 years.

Extract of news on 23rd May.
KOCHI: National Green Tribunal's (NGT) special circuit bench at Ernakulam has banned the use of diesel vehicles older than 10 years, as in Delhi.
The bench headed by justice J Swatanterkumar issued the interim order after hearing a petition filed by Lawyers' Environmental Awareness Forum (LEAF).
The tribunal has also ordered that fine of Rs 10,000 be imposed if the older diesel vehicles are run after 30 days. It was alleged in the petition that Kochi has earned the reputation of being the most polluted city and that the fate of fast-growing regions in Kerala is no different.
The petition had demanded that spewing of venomous gases by the old diesel vehicles such as lorries and buses should be immediately curtailed.

End of road for 10 year old diesels. The ban is here to stay as per this news report.

The green panel said the Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises has failed to prove that the use of 10-year-old diesel vehicles will not be harmful to the health of people.
It also said that a report of the pollution monitoring body has declared that one new diesel car is equivalent to 24 petrol and 84 new CNG cars on road.

Its going to be a season for petrol again and with the drive towards EV, firms will now seriously start planning for the EV route

What about commercial diesel vehicles that run more mileage very quickly. Shouldn't they be banned based on the number of kilometres they run ?

I am all for stringent emission norms followed up by stringent testing. Instead of adhoc decisions, they need to firm up a roadmap so that everyone knows what to buy.

With the NGT having its way the direct fallout of diesel car ban in Delhi would be that now most of the 10 years old diesel cars will find their way into towns and villages of the NCR region being sold as second hand vehicles. And literally speaking if these were causing pollution in the capital, they will now contribute to pollution in new areas. Therefore Delhi's gain would be other places loss. Moreover it is quite likely that the pollution from the periphery areas would sooner or later find its way into Delhi due to the air circulation in the atmosphere as is the case with the smoke due to crop stubble burning which travels hundreds of kilometers with the winds from the farms of Punjab and Haryana to pollute Delhi.
