Notably, the court will also decide whether the rate of green levy on big diesel cars be more than 1 percent of ex- showroom cost of the vehicle.

The decision came when SC was hearing the plea of luxury car maker Mercedes – Benz , who offered to pay 1 percent environment cess in a bid to overcome the ban from the vehicles.
