The Supreme Court(SC) has relaxed its ban on diesel taxis in Delhi-NCR, allowing them to use till their permits expire.
But the bench, headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur, said the Delhi government will not register any new diesel taxis, and that registration of all city taxis shall be permitted only if the vehicles operate on dual-fuel (CNG/petrol) or purely CNG or petrol. The bench also underlined that diesel taxis will eventually have to go off the roads.
The court order is likely to free up more than 60,000 taxis, which had to go off roads since they had not switched to CNG. Further, the court-mandated stipulation regarding fare compliance with government norms may affect ‘surge pricing’ used by taxi aggregators, which the Delhi government had sought to stop during odd-even phase 2.
So let’s do:
1. Who is the Governor of Delhi ?
2. Supreme Court asked _____ Government not to register New Diesel Cars.
3. Who is the Chief Justic of India ?
