After Delhi air pollution resides a little in the national capital, the Delhi govt lifts ban on the BS3 petrol vehicles and BS4 diesel cars. All types of vehicles can ply from Monday (November 14). No curbs, reports Delhi govt official. As Delhi is observing improvement in the Air Quality Index (AQI), slowly and gradually the government is making changes in the GRAP (Graded Response Action Plan) that was invoked last week. A few days ago, the Delhi government revoked the GRAP and allowed the entry of non-BS6 diesel vehicles, which was earlier restricted under the new strategy to curb pollution. The GRAP also invoked a ban on private BS4 and BS4 diesel cars.
Before the ban was lifted, Delhi Traffic Police were stopped from entering Delhi, while over 1,200 diesel light motor vehicles were impounded under the GRAP. Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai chaired a high-level meeting to discuss the new directions by the Centre’s air quality panel about revoking curbs imposed under the final stage of the Graded Response Action Plan, officials said.
The Centre’s air quality panel last week directed authorities to lift the ban on plying non-BS VI diesel-run light motor vehicles in Delhi-NCR and entry of trucks into the capital imposed under the final stage of the GRAP.
The restrictions were imposed a few days ago. As Delhi’s air quality index spiralled to 450, just a notch short of the “severe plus” category, on Thursday, the Commission of Air Quality Management directed authorities to ban the plying of non-BS VI diesel light motor vehicles in the city and adjoining NCR districts and the entry of trucks into the national capital as part of anti-pollution measures under stage IV of GRAP.
