Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government has decided to disallow commercial vehicles older than 15 years to run on roads in the state.
Transport Minister Bhupender Singh told reporters on Tuesday that the decision was taken in view of the rising pollution. Such old vehicles would neither be issued new permits nor given fitness certificates. Police and transport department would launch search operation as well.
The minister also said the government is pondering over reducing the age limit for getting licence from 18 to 16.
