On Thursday, Supreme Court has put its efforts to clean up Delhi’s air. The options to clean Delhi’s air are banning diesel cars from capital’s road and stopping trucks from passing through the city.
Around 23℅ of commercial vehicles and 40-60℅ of heavy trucks entering to Delhi are not destined for capital. For tackling the crisis, the bench directed the government to come prepared with definite action plan on December 15.
The bench of chief Justice said, “There can’t be a single solution of the problem. There has to be multi-pronged approach. All authorities including the centre and state government should sit together along with environmental experts. There should be brain storming session and they should come out with a solution.”
Senior advocate, Harish Salve told the bench that diesel vehicles should be banned or they’re should be limitation on registration of diesel cars in Delhi as they are more polluting. He said government should dis-incentivize diesel cars by scrapping subsidies on diesel.
