Sharma added, "Now, the state government is of the opinion that in view of the financial condition of the farmers and continuing ban of operation of 10 year (old) diesel vehicles in the NCR including specified agriculture vehicles,... it is necessary and expedient to enhance the validity of the said Act up to June 30, 2025."

He further said that during this period of time, various policy issues and support for phasing out the specified agriculture vehicles from the National Capital Region are expected to be finalised.

For the Delhi NCR areas, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has ruled that plying of diesel and petrol vehicles older than 10 and 15 years respectively will not be allowed. The reason for this is the increasing level of air pollution in the city which has been affecting the residents of the city and the NCR regions.
