New Delhi: The Supreme Court will today hear the plea of automobile industry over the ban on diesel cars with engine capacity of 2000 CC and above in National Capital Region.
In December last year, in a stringent dictat to the stakeholders involved in causing vehicular pollution in the NCR region, the Supreme Court had imposed a ban on the registration of diesel-run vehicles of the capacity of 2000 CC and above. The ban will remain in force till April 30.
The Centre had sought postponement of hearing on the ground that all the law officers would be preoccupied in a conference in Cuttack in Odisha.
The Bench of Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justice U U Lalit refused to defer the hearing and said that the heaing is on a non-working day, and the other stakeholders have agreed to it.
