Delhi Government starts deregistering old diesel and petrol vehicles. Ten things to know

The high level of pollution in the city prompted the government to crack down on old vehicles. Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot said the government had canceled the registration of more than 1 Lakh old vehicles. Most of these prohibited compounds were over ten years old. Therefore, you also have to worry about your old vehicles.

1: Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot said that around 1 diesel vehicle, which was more than ten years old, has been decommissioned so far.

2: Apart from this, petrol vehicles older than 15 years are also decommissioned.

3: Delhi's public transport is running at a third of its capacity, increasing the number of private environmental buses, said Kailash Gehlot.

4: Until now, the rule was not to give a NOC for diesel vehicles older than 10 years and petrol vehicles older than 15 years. But recently the government changed the matter and now they are giving Certificate of No Objection (NOC) to all vehicles that have completed their life.

5: The Transport Minister said that vehicles that have been deregistered in Delhi can be re-registered in those states where diesel vehicles older than 10 years can operate.

6: Leftover vehicles can also be converted to electric vehicles. So we invite those who want to convert vehicles into electric cars.

7: Although the process of acquiring the electric machine is between the owner of the vehicle and the company, the Department of Transport and the Government of Delhi have no role in this.

8: The Minister of Transport said that it is possible to request a Certificate of No Objection through the website of the Department of Transport.

9: The Delhi government has renewed permits for 550 green buses. In the next two to three days, more buses will start operating.

10: Currently, public transport in Delhi operates at only a third of its capacity. Previously, around 50 people used to ride a 35-seat bus, which has now dropped to 17-18 due to the increase in coronavirus cases.
