Delhi Smog Crises: Govt. Bans Firecrackers, Old Diesel Cars To Get The Situation Under Control

Published on 8 November, 2016 at 12:03 pm By

Even as Delhi haze situation slowly but surely improved on November 7, Delhi’s Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung decided to take some strict measures so as  to ensure further improvement in the environment.

 

Jung on November 7, held a meeting with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Environment Minister Imran Hussain.

After the meeting, they decide to ban the use of Firecrackers and old diesel vehicles in the city with immediate effect and also ordered all polluting industries in the city to be shut down.

Environment situation in Delhi, despite improvement, still continues to be at “severe” in air quality level. Jung thus decided that all old diesel cars, which are older than 15 years, would be de-registered, while any use of firecracker in the city is now banned.



 

Meanwhile, Union Environment Minister Anil Madhav Dave also held a meeting with the environment ministers of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh and together came up with the conclusion that around 80 per cent of the problems leading to rising pollution levels in Delhi is due to local factors, while only 20 per cent is due to neighbouring states.

Looking at the situation, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has already pulled up the Delhi government for  unprecedented smog levels which made the city into a virtual gas chamber.

For now, Jung has banned bursting of firecrackers, including during weddings, but said this ban will not apply to religious functions .

He also ordered ‘no entry’ into Delhi, for any overloaded trucks that are not destined for the city and said that in two days, a system would be in place to turn away overloaded and non-destined trucks.

All construction and demolition activities have also been stopped till November 11, along with coal-based thermal power plant at Badarpur, which generates fly ash, has been asked to remain shut for 10 days.
