“The National Green Tribunal today said it would first go through the order passed by the Supreme Court and then decide on the plea of car dealers seeking modification of order banning registration of new diesel vehicles. ‘The Supreme Court has passed certain directions. We would like to go through the direction and then decide accordingly. We would like to be governed by SC order,’ a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said while posting the matter for next hearing on December 18. Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court banned registration of diesel-run SUVs and cars having engine capacity beyond 2000 cc in Delhi and National Capital Region till March 31, next year as it unveiled a slew of measures to curb the alarming rise in pollution levels in the city. The green panel’s observation came while hearing a plea by five Delhi based car dealers who had sought modification of December 11 order which said there would be no registration of new diesel vehicles in Delhi.
