#hashtags: #Supreme Court #Delhi NCR #May 2016

In a bid to save the city from increasing pollution and emissions, Supreme Court has now extended the ban over the sales and registration of diesel vehicles equal to or more than 2,000cc engine capacity. This has resulted in the car industry taking a major hit in sales in the Delhi NCR region, but the government holds its ground that the capital city needs cleaner air.

The extension was announced in the recent judicial hearing, and the ban will continue till 9th May 2016 (the date of next hearing).
