Air pollution: Only CNG, e-vehicles allowed to enter Delhi from today

On Saturday, when the ban announced by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is lifted, vehicles using compressed natural gas and electric power will be allowed to enter Delhi. However, gasoline and diesel transportation vehicles will continue to be banned. The Arvind Kejriwal government earlier announced a ban on trucks and banned people performing basic services until December 3, in order to improve the deteriorating air quality in the capital.

According to the Air Quality Management Committee (CAQM) order, the AAP government announced the rule and other instructions.

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

Earlier this week, the Delhi government re-implemented the ban on construction and demolition activities based on an order of the Supreme Court. At the same time, after a two-week ban, it decided to resume physical education classes in schools, colleges and other educational institutions from November 29, and reopen government offices.

When Delhi woke up this morning, he found light fog and hazy weather. According to the Indian Air Quality and Weather Forecast and Research System (SAFAR), the air quality index is 386, which is in the “very poor” category.
