The Supreme Court today upheld the ban imposed by National Green Tribunal’s (NGT) on plying of diesel vehicles that are over 10 years old in Delhi.

The apex court dismissed the plea challenging the NGT’s order and said, “Let us assist and not discourage them (NGT).”

In the original NGT ruling, a five-member bench, headed by Swatanter Kumar, had said that while older vehicles would be phased out in Delhi, those coming from other states would not be allowed to enter the city.

The NGT’s April 8 order is expected to impact 1,18,773 private vehicles and 34,659 commercial vehicles plying on the roads of National Capital Region.

The new upgraded ruling bans all 10-year-old diesel vehicles and 15-year-old petrol from  the roads of Delhi.

Though environmentalists have welcomed the move, implementation of the process is a tough task. Every day  more than 5 lakh vehicles enter Delhi, and to implement the ruling with this daily influx of vehicles will be a tough task, a newspaper reported.
