Not even 0.1% of banned vehicles impounded

The Delhi Government may have de-registered 40 lakh old vehicles to curb pollution in the national capital, but the enforcement data shows that only 3,196 (.079 per cent) such vehicles were impounded after the ban imposed by the NGT in 2014.

Two agencies are responsible for enforcing the ban on 15-year-old petrol vehicles and 10-year-old diesel vehicles — Delhi traffic police and Delhi Transport Department. The ban was ratified by the Supreme Court.

The Delhi Transport Department data provided under the RTI paints even a grimmer picture: it has been able to impound only 106 vehicles since the NGT banned them in 2014, till August 31, 2018.
