NEW DELHI: The Na­tional Green Tri­bunal has di­rected the traf­fic po­lice to look into a plea al­leg­ing that diesel ve­hi­cles were be­ing op­er­ated in­side the In­dia Trade Pro­mo­tion Or­gan­i­sa­tion (ITPO) premises at Pra­gati Maidan here even though only CNG ve­hi­cles are al­lowed.

A bench headed by NGT chair­per­son Jus­tice Adarsh Ku­mar Goel di­rected the DCP (HQ), Delhi Traf­fic Po­lice, Re­gional Trans­port Of­fi­cer and Delhi Pol­lu­tion Con­trol Com­mit­tee to jointly look into the mat­ter and take ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion in ac­cor­dance with

law within one month from the date of re­ceipt of copy of the order.

"The nodal agency will be the DPCC. A copy of this order, along with the com­plaint, be sent to the DPCC by e-mail for com­pli­ance," the bench said.

It also re­it­er­ated that ev­ery order of the NGT was bind­ing as a de­cree of court and non­com­pli­ance was ac­tion­able by way of puni­tive ac­tion in terms of the Na­tional Green Tri­bunal Act, 2010. The direc­tion came while tak­ing note of a let­ter by city res­i­dent Anand Bhalla, who al­leged that diesel ve­hi­cles were be­ing op­er­ated, even though only CNG ve­hi­cles are al­lowed in­side the In­dia Trade Pro­mo­tion Or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The pe­ti­tioner al­leged that diesel ve­hi­cles were run by col

lu­sion be­tween the op­er­a­tors and of­fi­cers of the ITPO.
