SC issues notice in Transport Ministry’s order of not allowing 10-yr-old diesel vehicles to ply in NCR


New Delhi, May 3 (ILNS) The Supreme Court has issued notice in a plea, which challenged the action of the Ministry of Road Transport And Highways in not allowing the petitioner-school to ply diesel vehicles of more than 10 years old in the National Capital Region for picking up and setting down the children in Baghpat District.

The Bench of Justice S Abdul Nazeer and Justice Sanjiv Khanna issued notice in the plea filed by a school through Advocate Rani Chabbra.

Advocate Chabbra’s reliance was placed on the order of the apex court in Sarvodaya Public School & Ors Vs The Transport Commissioner & Ors, whereby the top court allowed the Sarvodaya Public School to ply diesel buses for the unexpired period of three year on condition that they will not enter into NCT of Delhi.

The plea stated, “In the District of Baghpat, only fuel available for these Buses is Diesel and all the Buses being run by the Schools are Diesel vehicles and there is no alternative fuel like CNG available except Diesel and all the vehicles are to depend on only fuel Diesel.”

Earlier in 2015, the Principal Bench of the National Green Tribunal, New Delhi, passed orders banning of Diesel vehicles more than 10 years old to operate on National Capital Region of Delhi.

Thereafter, in 2017, NGT ordered, “The applicants who have prayed for running of buses in district of Moradabad, Bulandshahar, Meerut and Muzzafarnagar, which are more than 10 years old, would be permitted to ply for a period of three years from today, within which time they should replace the said vehicles, either by buses which are BS-IV compliant or shifting to CNG.” ILNS/KR/RJ
