Noida to seize 10-yr-old diesel, 15-yr-old petrol vehicles in winter action plan

The Gautam Buddh Nagar administration has directed the district police to impound diesel vehicles that are older than 10 years and petrol vehicles that are older than 15 years in compliance with a Supreme Court order. This is being done as part of the ‘winter action plan’ in a bid to prevent air pollution in the city, that tends to rise during winters.

The district administration has also directed police to make sure that vehicles which are not destined for Noida or Greater Noida should use bypasses or peripheral expressways. The police will also keep an eye out and show no tolerance for visible emissions by stopping "visibly polluting vehicles" from plying. Such vehicles will either be impounded or fines will be issued to offenders.

The police will also keep a vigil on incidences of non-compliance of pollution under control (PUC) norms besides ensuring stoppage of encroachment on footpaths. “Check and resolve issues such as congestion and unusual dust emission due to traffic or parking, and ensure compliance of action plans on the identified pollution hotspots in the city," the action plan stated.

The administration released the 'winter action plan' on October 6 in order to check pollution ahead of winters, the time when air pollution in the National Capital Region (NCR), including Noida and Greater Noida, increased to severe levels, affecting human health.

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board identified eight main air pollution hot spots in Noida and Greater Noida. These include Sector 7X, Sector 150, the Yamuna Pusta area, the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, the Dadri road, the underpass and building construction along Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, Greater Noida West and UPSIDC industrial areas.
