CSE welcomes landmark judgment of Supreme Court to implement urgent measures for controlling pollution in Delhi-NCR

  • Landmark decision from the Chief Justice bench of the Supreme Court stops registration of luxury diesel cars and SUVs in the NCR; bars entry of pre-Euro III trucks into Delhi; doubles the environment compensation charge on all trucks entering Delhi; and mandates all taxis in NCR to convert to CNG. It has also asked for stringent action on trash burning and road dust. 

Cess on diesel car

Luxury diesel cars may become dearer and bulk diesel consumers may no longer get fuel at subsidized rates. The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas plans to impose 25 per cent cess on big diesel cars and charge industrial consumers the market price of Rs 57 per litre, Rs 22 more than the current price. The railways and state transport undertakings will be exempted from paying the market price.
