The Diesel Car: The government had banned BS3 and BS4 diesel vehicles from December in the NCR region in view of rising pollution in the capital Delhi. After this order of the government, the owners of these diesel vehicles were forced to park their vehicles at home.
But now the government has removed this ban from January 1. After which the vehicle owners can now drive BS3 and BS4 diesel vehicles comfortably. But to drive them, the driver must have a PUC certificate. If this is not done, the owner of the vehicle will be fined Rs 10,000 and the vehicle will also be seized.
Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said that the third phase of GRP has been withdrawn after the improvement of air quality in the capital. The ban on BS3 petrol and BS4 diesel vehicles has been lifted with immediate effect till further orders. Now the vehicle owners can easily drive these vehicles in Delhi.
Many restrictions will be lifted
According to the officials concerned, the CAQM sub-committee has lifted the ban on Phase 3 of GRP in view of Delhi’s weather conditions and AQI index. Now it is expected that the AQI index in the capital Delhi will continue to improve. The AQI was recorded at 346 till 5 pm on Monday.
It will improve further in the coming days, but the current situation is bad. That is why there is no change in the restrictions of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of GRP. If anyone does not follow the rules of Phase 1 and Phase 2, then action will be taken and it will be implemented by the concerned agencies in the National Capital Region and its monitoring will also be reviewed.
You can’t drive these cars
After the lifting of the ban of Phase 3 of the GRP, people can drive BS4 diesel vehicles but a ban will still continue. But those living in Delhi still cannot drive diesel vehicles that are more than 10 years old. If anyone drives them, the vehicle owner will be fined heavily. Under the scrappage policy, diesel vehicles older than 10 years are now banned in Delhi-NCR.
