New Delhi: With Delhi’s air quality turning “severe" on Tuesday, the transport department issued a notice warning that 15-year-old petrol and 10-year-old diesel vehicles plying on the city roads in violation of Supreme Court and National Green Tribunal (NGT) orders will be impounded. In its 2015 order, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had banned the plying of petrol vehicles older than 15 years and diesel vehicles older than 10 years in the national capital region (NCR). It also banned the parking of 15-year-old vehicles in any public area. The Supreme Court on Monday endorsed the NGT order and directed that such vehicles be impounded.
