3 lakh such vehicles will be removed from the roads of Delhi on the new year, even your car is not in this list

If you live in Delhi and your car is diesel, then this news is important for you. The Delhi government has decided to terminate the registration of those diesel vehicles from January 1, whose 10 years have been completed or else this period will be completed on January 1, 2022. According to the order of the National Green Tribunal, this decision is being taken by the Delhi government. According to the order issued by the Transport Department this week, NOC will be issued to the owners of these vehicles so that they can get them deregistered at any other place. However, this NOC will not be for those vehicles which have completed 15 years. 

On October 29, 2018, the Supreme Court had ordered a ban on 15-year-old petrol vehicles and 10-year-old diesel vehicles in Delhi. Earlier in 2014, the NGT had ordered that vehicles older than 15 years should not be allowed even for parking at public places. A Delhi government official said, “We are taking action against old diesel vehicles. So far, the registration of about 1 lakh such vehicles has ended. Now the registration of all such vehicles will be terminated strictly from January 1, 2022. Till now 1 lakh have been banned and at present there are 2 lakh more such vehicles, which are at least 10 years old.

3 lakh such vehicles will be removed from the roads of Delhi
This means that 3 lakh diesel vehicles will be banned from plying on the roads of Delhi from the new year. The official said that people have been informed about this by issuing frequent notices from the Transport Department. He said, “As per the instructions of the department, 15 years old diesel vehicles and 10 years old petrol vehicles will not be able to ply in Delhi. This order has been issued under the scrapping policy. According to officials, the number of overage vehicles in Delhi is close to 38 lakh. Of these, 3 lakh are diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old. 

NGT had ordered strict enforcement of rules in 2016
The National Green Tribunal had in July 2016 ordered de-registration of 10-year-old diesel vehicles and said it should be strictly enforced. It was said in that order that first 15 years old vehicles should be banned and then 10 years old vehicles can be banned. 

The Transport Department also gave this option to the vehicle owners.
The Transport Department has also given some relief to the vehicle owners. Under this, if 10 old diesel vehicles and 15 years old petrol vehicles are converted into electric vehicles, then they will be allowed to drive. However, electric kits in these vehicles will be allowed to the vehicle owners only from the agencies approved by the Transport Department.


Growing Religiousization of Indian Politics

The religiousization of Indian politics is increasing. Every big party and its leaders are seen asking for votes on the basis of religion only, as if all the problems of the country have been resolved. Whether it is the ruling party or the opposition, religion is being talked about in Indian politics. The Prime Minister is being shown worshiping on TV all over the country and those challenging him are trying to portray themselves as a bigger savior than him. Rahul Gandhi is trying to give proof of his being a Hindu by screaming. Akhilesh Yadav is trying to tie his head to the idea of ​​Kashi corridor. On the other hand, Mamata Banerjee, who was trying to become the biggest face of the opposition in the next Lok Sabha elections, has buried the entire existence of the party with the peg of religion by telling her party TMC to mean “Temple, Mosque, Church”.

Just remember, looking at the declared priorities of the major political parties of the country, it does not seem that any other subject is necessary for the public interest in the country. This is the same country which is still very backward on most parameters of development. More than 20 percent of the population here is still illiterate. More than 25 percent of the population is below the poverty line. The gap between the rich and the poor is only getting widened. This is the same country that has just emerged from such a wave of epidemics that had turned the whole country into a huge cremation ground. There is hardly any person whose family, relatives, friends or acquaintances have not even touched the house of death.

Have people so quickly forgotten that tragedy, carrying on their hearts the burden of regret for the death of their loved ones and not being able to see them till their last sight? What is the priority, those in power would like people to forget all this. He would also like the people to forget that the direction in which the country’s economy is going is a different tragedy. The economy, which is already losing its pace of growth, has collapsed in these two years of the pandemic. For the first time in history, the economy is shrinking instead of growing. Rich families can bear this shock but for the poor and middle class there are alarm bells. In recent decades, the millions of people who were able to slowly come out of poverty have gone back into the grip of poverty. Such inflation has not been seen in the last at least 12 years.

The unemployment rate has broken the 45-year record. If we look beyond the political spectacles, then we will understand in what condition the country is at this time. At this time the country needs a politics that tells how crores of people will get employment, how will the stove be lit in homes, how will children reach schools, how will the number of beds in hospitals, doctors and hospitals increase? How to overcome the shortage of such a basic thing as oxygen? Such questions necessary for existence are standing before us. In such a situation, should the biggest concern be that which temple will be built, where and when? Whom the public wants to choose can be told in the elections, but the political parties have a chance to show their priorities before the elections. Right now it seems that she has set her priorities. And at present there is no place for efforts to improve the lives of common people.
