National Green Tribunal's directive to move out 15-year-old vehicles from the roads of Delhi has been welcomed by the automotive industry of India.
This move would help reduce air pollution in the capital city of Delhi, feel the auto industry. It would also ensure modernisation.
One section from the automotive industry of India feel that the vehicles should be scrapped instead of being removed because they can get registered outside the state and re-enter Delhi.
Vishnu Mathur, the Director General of Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) says, "We have been asking for a fleet modernization and scrapping policy for a long time."
"This move will not only help remove polluting vehicles, but also enable entry of more fuel-efficient and environmentally-clean vehicles into the market."
The auto industry too has been asking for end-of-life policy for vehicles that are more than 15 years old.
A few people like Gaurav Bagga, the Director of Bagga Motors feel that this move will bring in newer and safer vehicles on Indian roads. he says, "This move will allow entry of new technology vehicles in the market and reduce running costs."
