CPCB recommends ban on entry of heavy vehicles in Delhi after Diwali

Wednesday, November 07, 2018

New Delhi: The CPCB has recommended to the authorities that the entry of heavy vehicles in Delhi must be banned after Diwali from November 8 to 10 when the air quality is expected to deteriorate further to severe level.

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) Tuesday held a meeting with the transport authorities and advised them to ban the entry of heavy vehicles from November 8 to 10, Prashant Gargava, Member Secretary of the statutory organisation under the environment ministry said.

The recommendation was made in view of the heavy pollution caused by such vehicles which might add to the woes of the national capital which is already battling alarming levels of pollution, another CPCB official said.
