In view of rising pollution levels in the national capital, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had in 2016 announced a ban on diesel vehicles older than 10 years in Delhi. Presently NOC is not being given in Delhi to diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old and petrol vehicles which are more than 15 years old but the government is giving NOC to them to ply in other states where such vehicles are not banned.

The Delhi government is also giving approval to install electric kits in old vehicles running on petrol and diesel. Allowing retrofitment of electric kits for petrol and diesel vehicles will help promote electric and zero-emission vehicles in the national capital. The Delhi Transport Department is enlisting manufacturers who make electric kits to convert conventional ICE vehicles into electric vehicles.
