The Supreme Court on Saturday extended the stay on registration of diesel vehicles above 2000 cc capacity in the Delhi-NCR region until further orders. The court was hearing various petitions related to its earlier rulings on controlling the problem of pollution in the city.
The court also slammed the government for not being serious about the issue of pollution, ANI reported.
A number of cab operators and their associations urged the court for an extension of the deadline, but a bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice R. Banumati refused the request.
The apex court had initially asked the diesel cab operators in the NCR to switch over to CNG by March 1. That deadline was later extended to March 31 and then to April 30.
