NGT’s diesel vehicle ban may extend to more cities like Kolkata, Mumbai, Bengaluru
NEW DELHI: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) is set to consider, on Monday, whether to impose a ban on the sale of large diesel-powered vehicles in 11 more cities, worrying auto makers who say such a move will be unscientific and uncalled for.
The Supreme Court has since December 2015 banned in the National Capital Region comprising Delhi and its surrounding areas, registration of new vehicles with 2-litre or larger diesel engines. The NGT last week imposed a similar ban in some cities of Kerala and also barred diesel vehicles that are older than 10 years. The state high court on Friday stayed the NGT order on new vehicles, but didn't interfere with that covering old ones.
Overall, industry experts say, about 4 lakh diesel vehicles with 2-litre or larger engines are sold in the country annually. The ban in the NCR has already resulted in a production loss of 11,000 vehicles, affecting 5,500 jobs, including at dealerships, according to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). Had the ban been countrywide, it would have led to a loss of 47,000 jobs, it estimates.
