Delhi govt. not averse to ban on 10 year old diesel vehicles

The Government of Delhi has declared that it is willing to ban diesel vehicles more than 10 years of age in accordance with the order issued by the National Green Tribunal (NGT). However, it wants some time to implement measures like running additional buses so that there is no crisis.

The government submitted an affidavit to the NGT suggesting measures to discourage the use od private diesel vehicles. Some of the points in the affidavit include the restriction of the number of cars to one per family, congestion charge on cars registered outside Delhi, higher registration charges for registration of more than two vehicles in a family and uniform vehicle taxation policy for NCR, among others.

However, the Government of India is against this ban and is challenging the NGT's order. The Delhi government cannot implement the ban if the Centre does not give its approval.
