    The Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favour of prohibiting 10-year-old diesel and 15-year-old petrol cars from plying in the NCR (National Capital Region). As per this ruling, any diesel vehicle older than 10 years or petrol vehicles older than 15 years can be impounded by the police.

    According to the Supreme Court, the ruling came about due to the pollution levels in NCR being "Very Critical”. The overall air quality in the region was in the second-most alarming category. 

    This isn’t the first ban that this category of vehicles has received.  Earlier this year, the National Green Tribunal had issued a similar ban on 10-year-old diesel and 15-year-old petrol vehicles.
