New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday extended the stay till May 18 on its order banning 10-year-old diesel vehicles from plying in Delhi-NCR.
The move comes after the Centre moved the green panel seeking stay on its ban order on diesel vehicles in Delhi ans surrounding region.
Centre had also sought six months time for suggesting measures to combat air pollution in Delhi.
Noting that diesel is the prime source of air pollution in Delhi, the green panel had on April 7 held that all diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old will not be permitted to ply in Delhi-NCR.
The NGT which had earlier banned movement of all diesel vehicles across the Rohtang Pass near Manali, had also allowed such vehicles to ply till May 5 after the Himachal Pradesh government said it would conduct trials to explore feasibility of running CNG-fuelled buses.
