Vehicles older than 15 years not to ply in Delhi: NGT

New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has passed the order that all the petrol and diesel vehicles older than 15 years would not be permitted to ply on the national capital's road.

A bench, headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar, passed the order saying that it is unquestionable that air pollution of the National Capital Territory is getting worse with each passing day, and it only projects the very dismayed state of affairs with clear indication that worst is likely to follow.

The bench has reportedly directed the concerned authorities to take appropriate steps in accordance with law, including seizure of the vehicles, wherever such vehicles of this age are noticed.
