Supreme Court upholds ban on sale of large diesel vehicles in Delhi
Supreme Court upholds ban on sale of large diesel vehicles in Delhi




NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a December ruling that temporarily banned the sale of large diesel cars in New Delhi to combat toxic smog in the national capital.

The top court, however, agreed to hear the pleas filed by carmakers including Mahindra & Mahindra, Toyota and Mercedes and asked them to show documentary proof whether diesel vehicles are less or more polluting than petrol. In their pleas, the companies had sought modification of the top court's December 16 order, imposing the ban in the wake of alarming air pollution particularly during the winter season.

While doubling the environment compensation charge (ECC) for loaded commercial vehicles entering Delhi, the court had imposed a blanket ban on registration of diesel vehicles of 2,000 cc and above including SUVs in the National Capital Region (NCR), noting they are prone to cause higher pollution level and are used by the more affluent sections of society, according to Times of India.
