Bihar State government is to ban all state-owned vehicles that are older than 15 years across the state

Bihar State government is to ban all the state-owned vehicles that are older than 15 years across the state. The proposal aims to combat air pollution. The Andhra Pradesh State cabinet is expected to approve the proposal. The restriction will be extended to commercial vehicles, but only for the Patna metropolitan area, which would make it the first non-metro city to come under such a ban. 

Key Points:

  • It is aiming to create opportunities for the government to buy electric vehicles as well as those that meet Bharat Stage VI standards. According to the data provided by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the Air Quality Index (AQI) for Patna crossed the severe category at 414. 
  • The metros of Kolkata and Delhi are in force. Kolkata restricted movement of commercial vehicles older than 15 years in 2008. And the petrol vehicles older than 15 years and diesel vehicles older than ten years were ordered off the streets of the national capital region in 2015.
