NHAI, Haryana to give info to green court on vehicles entering Delhi
The National Green Tribunal on Monday directed the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the Haryana government to inform it as to how many goods transport vehicles travel to Delhi via Panipat.
A Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar asked NHAI and Haryana to furnish the data by September 21, the next date of hearing. “There appears to be some discrepancy in the data provided by you (Delhi Police) and NHAI. NHAI and Haryana, you both tell us how many goods transport vehicles, entering via Panipat, are destined to Delhi. Come on Monday,” the bench said in a brief hearing.
The directions came after Delhi Police submitted a data on goods vehicles which entered Delhi via <g data-gr-id="16">Singhu</g> and Rajokri borders between September 11 and September 13. The police informed the green bench that 4,672 goods vehicles entered Delhi via Singhu border, out of which 3,798 (81.29 per cent) vehicles were destined to Delhi while 874 (18.70 per cent) were destined to other areas like Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
