20 April, New Delhi
The Supreme Court Monday dismissed a plea against National Green Tribunal’s order banning petrol vehicles older than 15 years from plying on Delhi roads. The court observed that the tribunal should be assisted and not discouraged on the matter.
Last year, the Tribunal had banned all vehicles which were more than 15 years old and held that they would not be permitted to ply on the city roads.
It had also directed that wherever such vehicles are noticed, the concerned authorities should take appropriate steps in accordance with law including seizure of the vehicles.
