The Delhi government has encouraged the surrounding states to only permit buses that are powered by CNG or other environmentally friendly fuel to enter the capital city. The topic was discussed at a meeting of top officials from state transportation agencies that the NCR planning board called.
The matter was “debated in length” on Tuesday, according to an official announcement, and the NCR states were asked to look into the possibility of having their diesel buses converted to CNG or replaced with electric buses. Many diesel buses from other states enter Delhi and arrive at various bus terminals that are dispersed throughout the national capital.
According to a spokesperson for the housing and urban affairs ministry, officials also talked about the importance of ensuring that all commercial vehicles covered by the combined Reciprocal Common Transport Agreement (CRCTA) among the NCR constituent states have functional vehicle location tracking devices and speed governors.
According to the official, there was also agreement to move swiftly toward developing and harmonising the regulations for taxi aggregators or motor vehicle aggregators for the NCR in accordance with the Motor Vehicle Aggregators Guidelines published by the road transport ministry in 2020.
