Can't stop registration of new vehicles, Transport dept says of KSPCB order 28.8.2014 deccanherald.com
The Department of Transport and Road Safety has described as "illogical" the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board's (KSPCB) order that it should stop registration of new vehicles in Bangalore until pollution levels are controlled. The KSPCB had told the High Court on Tuesday that it had ordered the department to restrict registration of new vehicles in Bangalore until noise levels and air quality standards were met. It also directed the department to ban auto-rickshaws in the Central Business District (CBD) in a phased manner, forbid the use of two-stroke vehicles within the BBMP area and the entry of heavy motor vehicles (HMVs) within outer ring road and disallow HMVs 15 years old and above. The High Court, which is hearing a suo motu Public Interest Litigation (PIL) on the increase in ambient noise and air quality levels in Bangalore, had admonished the KSPCB for failing to discharge its duties. It had even asked the government why the KSPCB should not be superseded. After the court's strong ...
