Supreme Court panel invites suggestions from AAP govt, taxi unions

The Supreme Court-appointed Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) Wednesday held a meeting with officials of the Delhi government, transport departments of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, and representatives of taxi drivers’ unions, to discuss the Supreme Court’s ban on diesel vehicles in the NCR. After the three-hour-long meeting, held so that all stakeholders get a chance to express their opinion, the Delhi government and EPCA officials decided to meet again Thursday morning to finalise a plan to address issues raised by taxi unions.

With inputs from its interactions with the EPCA and taxi drivers, the Delhi government will submit a report to the Supreme Court Thursday, which had sought a “concrete and time-bound” roadmap on phasing out diesel taxis in the capital.

During the meeting, the EPCA took cognizance of the main complaint by the unions, who claimed that the Delhi government had been illegally registering diesel commercial vehicles since 1998 despite the Supreme Court ban that year.
