Following Delhi, Kerala, Bihar and Chhattisgarh, Haryana government has also banned 10-15 years old vehicles in a bid to control environment pollution.
Recently, Haryana government has taken a crucial step and banned 15-year-old petrol and 10-year-old diesel vehicles from roads within National Capital Region (NCR) limits.
Viewing persistent rise in pollution, the state government has banned vehicles registered in cities falling under the territorial jurisdiction of NCR such as Gurgaon, Faridabad, Sonepat and Jhajjar.
Gurgaon, Faridabad, Sonepat and Jhajjar cities have over 20 lakh registered vehicles.
According to recent report, India is one of the most polluted countries in the world and old vehicles contribute to a major portion of it.
Several other state government like Delhi, Kerala, Bihar and Chhattisgarh had took this measure to control rising pollution.
The circuit bench of National Green Tribunal (NGT) wants to ban old diesel vehicles over 10 years old in at least 15 cities across India to bring down pollution.
