The Regional Transport Authority (RTA) has decided to seize old vehicles in Gurgaon. The RTA has prepared a list of old vehicles in the city and will submit this list to the Gurgaon police. The vehicles will be impounded by the police and the owners will be challaned.
The RTA had given additional 15 days to owners who possess the old vehicle to collect no objection certificates (NOC). The old vehicles are automobiles which had crossed the age limit set by National Green Tribunal (NGT).
The authority has prepared a list of over 50,000 commercial vehicles, including diesel vehicles older than 10 years and petrol vehicles older than 15 years, as on February 29, 2016.
The registration of all the vehicles in the list has been cancelled by the authority. And also the old vehicles will not be allowed to use in the National Capital Region. Delhi Police department already started to impound these vehicles, but Gurgaon police were waiting for the green signal from the RTA.
Jitender Kumar, Secretary RTA said, "We gave people sufficient time to get their vehicles out of the NCT, and ply somewhere else. But they took it lightly. The deadline was extended for their convenience, but now we cannot delay action any further due to NGT orders."
