CNG, e-vehicles allowed to enter Delhi from today


New Delhi: Transport vehicles running on CNG and powered by electricity will be allowed to enter Delhi form Saturday, when the lifting of ban announced by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) comes into effect. The petrol and diesel-run transportation vehicles, however, will continue to remain banned.

The Arvind Kejriwal government had earlier announced a ban on the entry of trucks, barring those engaged in essential services till December 3 in order to improve the worsening air quality in the capital city.

The AAP government had announced the rule, among other directions, following the orders from the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM).

However, the rule does not apply to the entry of private vehicles and trucks transporting essential goods, the Delhi government clarified.

Delhi woke up to a shallow fog and hazy conditions this morning. The air quality index stood at 386 in the ‘very poor’ category, as per System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), India.
