New Delhi: With the onset of winter in the national capital, the orgy of pollution starts every year. This is the reason that this year the Delhi government is already on alert mode for several months. In fact, the Kejriwal government has banned the entry of medium and heavy vehicles in the capital in view of the possibility of increasing pollution in the coming winter season. The state government has imposed this ban on these vehicles from 1 October 2022 to 28 February 2023.
Entry of only BS-6 buses in Delhi
To prevent pollution in the capital, the Delhi government has not only banned the arrival of medium and heavy vehicles but has also taken a big step regarding buses. The Delhi government has appealed to the Haryana government to control air pollution that from October 1, 2022, only BS-VI compliant buses will be allowed in the capital. The NGT (National Green Tribunal) has already issued directions that, diesel vehicles older than 10 years are not allowed in Delhi-NCR.
In such a situation, OP Mishra, Special Commissioner of Delhi Transport Department has written in a letter to the Haryana Government that already public transport in the capital has been completely converted to CNG. At the same time, the use of diesel in buses coming to Delhi from other states is still going on. In such a situation, hoping for cooperation from Haryana, the Delhi government has said to allow only BS-6 buses in Delhi from October 1.
This decision was also taken against noise pollution
The Delhi government has started taking strict steps to crack down on air pollution as well as noise pollution. For this, the Kejriwal government has presented a special proposal. Under this proposal, special responsibility has been given to the officers and police stations of the civic bodies so that they can take strict action against the violators of noise pollution. Not only this, according to the proposal, the Delhi Environment Department has given the responsibility of prosecuting the police station in charge (SHO) to those who ignore the noise pollution rules.
