Environment ministry passes buck on vehicle emissions: The Times of India

“The ministry of environment, forest and climate change has submitted to National Green Tribunal (NGT) that its role in curbing vehicular emissions is “limited” and confined to framing of air quality standards.  ‘The role of MoEFCC is limited to evolving/framing air quality standards under the mandate of the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. In the present context, it is submitted that the ministry of road transport and highways is the authority concerned, as per business allocation rules, administering the Motor Vehicles (MV) Act and the rules framed for vehicular emission standards under the MV Act, 1988,’ the ministry said.” The Times of India.
