Diesel Car Banning to stay until Next Hearing

Snapshot: The Supreme Court has refused to extend the deadline to taxi operators in NCR.

It seems that the Supreme Court is in no mood to remove the ban on diesel cars above 2000cc, extending the ban till the next hearing which will take place on May 9. The diesel banning was first applied on December 16, 2015 until March 31, 2016, which was extended till April 30. However, the court has also refused to extend the deadline to taxi operators in NCR, to switch from diesel to CNG and all cabs used in the city will have to run on CNG from May 1.

The decision has affected many auto majors, including Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Volvo, Mahindra, Toyota, Tata Motors and many more. As most of the products by manufacturers use diesel engines above 2000cc in their SUVs and Luxury sedans. Where Mahindra has introduced a 1.99L diesel engine for the Scorpio and XUV500 in order to counter the ban.

Though, it is will be really hard on taxi operators, where over 27,000 cabs in Delhi run on diesel powered engines which accounts nearly 50 percent of the total 60,000 cabs plying in NCR. Due to this, there has been scarcity of cabs (specially the app based cabs) in the Delhi and the national capital region. In the meantime, many auto manufacturers are pushing the sales of the petrol vehicles to customers and reallocating petrol cars to the capital region to keep up with sales momentum.
