Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Vardhaman Kaushik Vs. Union of India & Others dated 31/03/2017 regarding rising air pollution in Delhi NCR and steps to control it.

NGT directs Chief Secretary, Delhi to submit a Status Report as to why destination buses, in terms of the earlier order of the Tribunal, have not been started so far. NGT said that providing of destination buses would not only result in reduction of the cars traffic, particularly from the colonies like Dwarka, Janakpuri, Rohini and other colonies from where large number of people come to their offices, but these buses, which are also air-conditioned, would certainly provide adequate and economical alternatives to the people.
