Detailed SUVs orders today: CJI
Earlier bench asked the Centre and Delhi govt to come out with solutions to clean Delhi’s air.
New Delhi: A senior counsel and amicus curiae Harish Salve highlighted several issues, including the need to direct that all taxis be converted to CNG; that the environment compensatory surcharge be doubled to prevent vehicles passing through Delhi from entering the city; to divert vehicles not headed for Delhi to take alternate routes; all commercial vehicles registered before 2005 that do not comply with Euro-4 norms must not be allowed to enter the city; no burning of trash and solid waste and ban on registration of luxury diesel cars and SUVs for three months.
The CJI told him that detailed orders would be issued on Wednesday on all these matters.
Earlier, in the course of arguments, the bench asked the Centre and Delhi government to come out with solutions to clean Delhi’s air. He said, “You formulate norms, prescribe the regime. Why don’t you do it? Take credit for cleaning Delhi. Why do you let the opportunity go by?”
On the government’s plan to allow cars with odd and even registration numbers on alternate days to curb pollution, the bench said it wasn’t sure if it would help. “You can implement it if it’s going to help. We haven’t stopped you,” it said.
