In an attempt to clean the lungs of Delhi, Supreme Court has banned the registration of diesel vehicles above 2000cc in Delhi from January 1st to March 31st, 2016. The apex court ruled in favour of National Green Tribunal’s order to ban these vehicles. The court has also ordered that all the taxis must be converted to CNG before 31st March, 2016. Supreme Court has also hiked the green cess on commercial vehicles by 100 per cent. Prior to this, the court has also ordered that the commercial vehicles registered before the year 2005 will not be allowed to enter Delhi.

The new order of banning vehicles above 2000cc will be effected from January 1st, 2016. It should be noted that Delhi is the largest passenger vehicle market in India with a 7% share. With this new rule, the premium automakers like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi along with ace utility vehicle manufacturer Mahindra & Mahindra will get the worst hit on the grounds of sales chart. Let’s have a look of the affected car models.
